This rise of the requests for used car parts was mainly driven by the implementation of the Scrapping premium in most of the European Countries, a bonus given to the people when they scrap their cars, if they promise to buy an environmental friendly one.

The rear silencers for example, experienced one of the greatest grows in terms of requests, which amount increased by 41% from 2009 to 2010.
Nevertheless, for a lot of parts there has been a significant slump in the amount of requests.

As an example, despite of the holding of its second position in terms of demands, the front bumpers experienced one of the biggest falls in requests with a 24% drop in one year.

The statistics also show that in France, the used engine parts are still the most demanded ones, representing 20% of the total amount of car parts requests made by the Internet Users. The Front panel parts almost tied with the number one category with approximately 19% of the requests. As for the interior parts category, it takes the third place with 17% of the demands.

However, on the other networks the tendency is slightly different. The Front panel stands as the most requested parts: 30% in the UK and 41% in Spain followed by the Interior, Engine, and Back panel parts.

Finally, the parts finder also revealed that the dominating makes in terms of requests were Renault, Peugeot, Volkswagen, Citroen and Ford car parts.
