In the ever-fluctuating Canada to US vehicle export market, success hinges on more than just understanding demand; it's about mastering demand with data-driven precision. Signal offers comprehensive wholesale data of over 6 million transactions per year and in-depth analysis of retail activity—tracking almost every retail listing across the US—to provide exporters with a granular understanding of the vehicles that are in demand.

This article delves into the importance of marketability data and how Canadian exporters can leverage this information to make informed decisions about which vehicles to purchase and export. 

Understanding Canada to US Vehicle Marketability Data

Marketability data provides real-time information for the demand of vehicles in the US market, categorized by Year, Make, and Model (YMM). This data is derived from extensive market research, including weekly wholesale transaction data, offering exporters insights into the current popularity and demand for specific vehicle types across various US regions.

Using Marketability Data to Inform Vehicle Export Decisions

Marketability data is important to Canadian vehicle exporters for many reasons. Here are just a few.

  1. Identifying Demand Trends

Marketability data helps exporters identify which vehicle models are currently in demand in different US regions. This information is vital for deciding which vehicles to export, ensuring alignment with market needs, and maximizing sales potential.

  1. Analyzing Retail Days of Supply

Signal assesses the Retail Days of Supply by comparing current inventory against sales rates per YMM. This analysis assists exporters in understanding how quickly specific vehicle models are moving in the market, providing a clear indication of supply and demand trends.

  1. Strategizing Purchasing Decisions 

By leveraging marketability data, exporters can strategize their purchasing decisions more effectively. This involves selecting vehicle models that have a higher likelihood of quick sales and better profitability in the US market.

  1. Competitive Market Entry:

An increase in supply can make market entry more challenging. Marketability data helps exporters evaluate the level of competition and saturation for specific vehicle types, helping them decide whether to enter the market or wait for a more opportune moment.

  1. Informed Pricing Strategies: 

Beyond just deciding which vehicles to export, marketability data can inform pricing strategies. Exporters can use this data to price their vehicles competitively, based on real-time market demand and supply dynamics.
