Genuine Parts Annual Report

SWOT Analysis


Genuine Parts is a trusted brand with a large scale distribution system and convenient retail locations. Their reputation for parts availability and fast delivery sets NAPA apart from smaller competitors.

Superior levels of component availability give a huge advantage to GPC. To replicate what the company has built over the decades would require an investment that keeps competitors away (moat).


In an environment where revenues have only been growing about 5% annually, GPC has to maintain its competitive advantages to prevent erosion of earnings power.


Genuine Parts continues to expand into new markets. A high average vehicle age, increased driving per car, and other economic trends favor GPC.


Competition (including independent stores) is always a factor that compels a successful company such as GPC to stay on top of margins, inventory, service, etc. GPC must continue improving and staying a step ahead of the competition.
