D.A.P. Exports

Executive Summary

D.A.P. Exports is a business that exports automobile parts and auto lubricants to Jamaica and other countries including Venezuela, Columbia and Ecuador. Many of the company’s shipments combine American-made products with foreign parts with some re-packaging and labeling.

Auto part sales is currently a $100 million industry in Latin America and the Caribbean. In these countries, a majority of the automobiles were manufactured in the 1980’s. Finding replacement parts for these autos has become a difficult process as auto makers focus on cars produced in the last ten years.

D.A.P. Exports has established an extensive network of customer contacts in the region. James Dunn, owner of D.A.P Exports, has twenty years of experience selling consumer products in Latin America and the Caribbean. James has been a salesperson for Axiom Food Products, Klymor Manufacturing, and Dudley Food Products. 

During those years, James used taxi services in Latin America and the Caribbean. It was during one of those trips that he became aware of the demand for auto parts and auto lubricants. James also discovered the best distribution system for auto products in the region, through the local taxi companies.

D.A.P. Exports will contract with the region’s taxi companies to provide auto parts and auto lubricants at wholesale prices. The taxi companies will either use the parts to repair their own vehicles or they will sell the parts to consumers. D.A.P Exports will also sell auto parts to auto part stores in the region.

Market Analysis Summary

Auto part sales is a $100 million dollar industry in Latin America and the Caribbean. In these countries, a majority of the automobiles were manufactured in the 1980s. Finding replacement parts for these autos has become a difficult process as auto makers focus on cars produced in the last ten years.

Typically, old cars are used as a source of parts once they can no longer be repaired. The major obstacle to accessing the market is the sparse number of auto part stores in the region where the prices for auto parts are high. Most of these auto stores focus on the upscale customer and don’t carry a wide range of parts for the older autos.

D.A.P. Exports will sell parts to auto stores but we will also pursue a new distribution network as well. The largest buyers of auto parts in the region are taxi companies. D.A.P. Exports has established an extensive network of contacts with these companies, and we will sell directly to them.

4.1 Market Segmentation

D.A.P. Exports will focus on the following target customers:

  • Taxi companies
  • Auto part stores

It is expected that individuals will also purchase from  D.A.P., but the repeat business, lower price sensitivity and larger volume per order mean that stores and taxi services will be more attractive customers for D.A.P.

Export automobile parts business plan, market analysis summary chart image

Market Analysis
Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5
Potential Customers Growth CAGR
Taxi Companies 10% 2,000 2,200 2,420 2,662 2,928 10.00%
Auto Part Stores 8% 4,000 4,320 4,666 5,039 5,442 8.00%
Total 8.68% 6,000 6,520 7,086 7,701 8,370 8.68%

4.2 Industry Analysis

Currently, the markets are too small to attract many competitors. The auto parts shops in the region are not expanding to meet the demand for parts for older cars. They are instead focusing on the newer cars that are being imported into the countries by wealthy individuals.

Utilizing the taxi services as a distribution network as well as primary customers is an excellent strategy to capture market share of a segment that is currently being ignored by bigger players.

4.3 Target Market Segment Strategy

It is estimated that there are over 25,000 vehicles in the region that are used by taxi services. And that number is growing.

The taxi firms are excellent target customers for D.A.P. Export products. First, they represent the largest buying block in our target countries. In addition there is no established channel for them to purchase parts for their cars at this time. 

By buying direct from D.A.P. Export, they reduce the cost of parts and they get exactly what they need quickly.

Although many of the taxi drivers are independent or work for small companies, the informal network within this group is extensive. There is a lot of downtime in this business, where drivers are waiting for fares. They will chat to friends/colleagues about their cars and their work. We will benefit from this through word-of-mouth recommendations.

4.4 Competition and Buying Patterns

Without much competition, the key to maintaining the customer base is the right parts, at a reasonable price, delivered quickly. As D.A.P. Exports meets customer’s demand for parts in a timely manner, sales will grow. The company will be able to strengthen the business relationships that will be critical when competition does emerge.

Strategy and Implementation Summary

D.A.P. Exports will offer a 15% discount on all purchases of $1,000 or more. We will also have two salespeople based in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our focus will be to establish our future on a strong relationship with the region’s taxi services.

James has established export contacts in Latin America and the Caribbean, that will make the process of developing an export channel for car parts much easier. In these countries, much business in done by a handshake and word of mouth, rather than formal contracts. His experience and contacts will be invaluable in this environment.

5.1 Competitive Edge

The products that D.A.P is selling are made for older cars, and the trend in this country is towards newer cars, therefore domestic demand for these parts is falling. For this reason, James will be able to negotiate excellent prices on the products that he will sell. He will also order in bulk which will further increase his negotiating leverage.

The other competitive edge of D.A.P. Exports is that we can assemble a product package that is exactly what a specific customer wants. When the taxi service buys directly from D.A.P. Exports, they will receive the highest quality product at the lowest price. Previously, because of the lack of an organized, established channel, car owners had to spend time shopping around for parts. Therefore their cars would be off the road for longer periods of time–every day costing them more lost revenue.

5.4 Marketing Strategy

During the months of May and June the regional salespeople will deliver presentations to taxi firms and auto parts stores in the region. D.A.P. Export will offer a 15% discount on all purchases over $1,000.

The key to the marketing strategy is continuous follow-up with customers so we can anticipate the parts inventory that will be needed in the future.
