With our very first report, we are delighted to bridge that gap and provide much-needed insights into the pre-owned car industry.

The CARS24, “Used Car Market Insights” report highlights the industry trends and also touches upon the global pre-owned car market. Furthermore, the report focuses on the preferred mode of payment, the car buyer’s checklist, gender and feedback from the used car customers, their preferred brand, the type of car the UAE consumers prefer, and several other interesting insights.

“With the increase in population post COVID, the number of car owners in the UAE has increased significantly, with over 34% of the total population. If you narrow it down to the individual emirates, then Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah are currently the top 3 cities for pre-owned cars. Car enthusiasts in Dubai have shown the most interest in pre-owned cars in the first half of 2022. From 2021 H2 to 2022 H1, the number of people interested in pre-owned cars has increased by 50-55%. When we look at the millennials in the UAE, more than 55% of them prefer to buy pre-owned cars online. Millennials are most enthusiastic about pre-owned cars, forming 60% of total buyers,” added Abhinav.

Globally, the pre-owned cars category is valued at $1.66 Trillion in 2022 – and with a CAGR of 6-7% this category is expected to touch $2.67 Trillion by 2030. Currently, China has the largest pre-owned car market share with over 10% ($167.4 billion), followed by the United States with 9% ($160.4 billion).

“Another interesting fact the report highlights is that males in the UAE constitute 70% of total buyers, whereas female buyers are growing fast with a rate of over 60% in the first half of 2022 compared to the second half of 2021,” concluded Abhinav.
