The Indian used car market was valued at USD 24.24 billion in 2019, and it is expected to register a CAGR of 15.12% during the forecast period (2020-2025). The used car market evolved in the country, with the growth of the organized and semi-organized sector. The pre-owned car or used car market crossed the 4 million units mark in FY 2018. This states that the used car market is 1.3 times the new car market. The revision of the GST rate on used cars from 28% to 12-18% has been a key factor in the industry growth.

The used car market is witnessing a boom in the country, with the demand for luxury cars continually increasing. Until few years, owning a luxury car was a dream for many consumers, mainly because of the financial hurdles. But this is gradually changing. Now, consumers can easily buy used luxury vehicles. Heavy depreciation in luxury car prices has made these vehicles, a preferred choice in the used car market. Some major factors driving the growth of the used luxury cars are as follows – high rate of depreciation value of the luxury cars, the fast-growing base of young population, increasing disposable income of the consumers (along with rapid urbanization), and growing internet penetration in non-metros.
