More than 450 thousand second-hand vehicle data is analyzed daily

Indicata, a business intelligence set consisting of the combination of machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data, scans the second-hand online vehicle market in Turkiye and analyzes more than 450 thousand second-hand vehicle data daily.

The sales data in the report is based on the advertisement data placed by more than 40 thousand institutions and organizations engaged in second-hand trade in the online market. These include listing sites such as sahibinden, Arabam, Letgo, VavaCars, as well as corporate second-hand websites of OEMs, institutions and platforms where high volume sales occur, such as Leaseplan, Intercity and Otokoc.

The figures do not include data on individual vehicle advertisements. Institutions engaged in second-hand trade on the online platform withdraw the advertisements of the vehicles they offer for sale for two reasons. First, it republishes the ad by revising the prices of the vehicles in the ad according to changing market conditions. Indicata also tracks when the announcements in question are published again.

Secondly, the trading institution withdraws the advertisement because it has sold its vehicle and publishes an advertisement for a vehicle that it will offer for sale again. This second group of vehicle advertisements, that is, vehicles that are completely removed from the advertisement, are considered “sales”.
