WITH OVER 115 MILLION VEHICLES ON THE ROAD TODAY THAT ARE OVER 10 YEARS OLD, PCV VALVES & BREATHER ELEMENTS STILL REPRESENT A SIGNIFICANT SALES OPPORTUNITY

The average vehicle age continues to grow and is now over 11.2 years(Polk Data). Greater than 46% of the 246.8 million vehicles registered on the road today are now over 10 years old. This equates to over 115 million vehicles, and represents a significant sales opportunity for the automotive aftermarket. Many of these older vehicles have a PCV Valve and/or a Breather Element that requires regular replacement maintenance.

While most manufacturers are reducing or completely eliminating their PCV Valve and Breather Element offering, PTC has increased its coverage and now has the most extensive offering in the market today. As the average age of vehicles registered on the road today continues to increase, don’t over look this market opportunity. PTC now has 213 PCV valves and 53 Breather Element numbers available to fit most any vehicle application.

All PTC part number labels include competitive cross references and UPC codes for your convenience. All part number application data is also available electronically in Activant, Wrenchhead and www.showmetheparts.com/ptc.
