Saudi Arabia is the largest market for the automotive aftermarket industry in the Middle East and will continue to grow rapidly driven by the country’s economic growth. Here’s why:
- About 83% of the vehicles in Saudi Arabia are without warranty and seek external aftermarket services, according to recent research from Glasgow Consulting Group.
- About 94% of drivers consider third party aftermarket service, which implies that a significant number of customers are willing to avail the services of an outside workshop for vehicle maintenance.
- Growth in infrastructure development, logistics, e-commerce and tourism as a part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 are set to contribute towards major growth in the automotive and aftermarket sector in the Kingdom.

Whether you're a manufacturer looking to enter the market or a well-established distributor/supplier, Automechanika Riyadh is the perfect gateway for you to be part of the opportunity that Saudi Arabia, the region's largest automotive aftermarket industry presents.
We exhibited at Automechanika Riyadh 2020 and the response to our products and services exceeded our expectations. Sensus prides itself on offering the latest digital solutions in the MENA region and we found that the attendees were very welcoming to our technology in their region and we gained a large number of leads from the event.
Automechanika Riyadh 2020 was a good forum to link with KSA customers and to start an export business relationship. Every visitor appreciated us after knowing our product manufacturing capability and showed keen interest in purchasing from us. Most visitors agreed to purchase sizeable quantities of our products if we open dealer/distribution channels in KSA.
Automechanika Riyadh is a great place for us because we are seeing a number of engineers who are really interested in technology. Many of the discussions we had were about technologies and about how these can help in the future.
I am excited for the show because it is giving a strong feeling about the local Saudi market. We would like to see the show develop every year and this year has been very strong. We received a lot of visitors and it’s obvious that visitors are looking for companies with spare parts and so I advise companies to take part in future shows.
