According to TechSci Research report, UAE Used Car Market - By Region, By Company Forecast & Opportunities, 2026”, UAE used car market was valued at over USD9590 million in 2020 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 13% to reach USD20630 million by 2026. Increasing average age of vehicles and lower prices of used cars are propelling the growth of the market. Companies like Copart Inc., Dubizzle Motors LLC, Al-Futtaim Group, etc., have launched digital platforms for buying and selling used cars as well as provide servicing and warranty facilities along with easy, instant and paperless loan experience to their customers. This enables the potential buyers to simply enquire about their required car over the website in a few clicks, post which the dealer can check the buyer’s eligibility and generate transactions with minimum hustle. The online platform also allows the users to browse through multiple car models and compare different parameters like age of the car, price, color, etc., before arriving at a purchase decision.

Another factor for the increasing demand for used cars is its growing demand from shared mobility companies. One of the major drivers for the UAE used car market is the rising demand for second-hand cars from shared mobility companies. Shared mobility services like ride-hailing, ride-sharing, car sharing, car rental, etc., are becoming increasingly popular among the UAE citizens as well as the tourist population because of the inherent convenience it provides. This makes it essential for fleet owners to develop a comprehensive fleet of cars for shared mobility purposes to meet user demand. In doing so, most of these fleet owners opt for second-hand cars instead of purchasing new cars as they are comparatively low priced. Thus, the growth of shared mobility services in the UAE is projected to significantly propel the market demand for used cars through the forecast period.
