From 2013, Key Note forecasts that the UK car dealer market will continue its recovery, rising at similar rate to that of the previous year. In 2014, subdued growth in the number of new car registrations is expected to limit any increase in the value of the market.
In recent years, the market has come under increased pressure following the double-dip recession, which saw the economy contract, while wages remained low and unemployment remained high.
