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 and VavaCars, as well as corporate second-hand websites, institutions and platforms such as Leaseplan, Intercity and Otokoc.

Individual vehicle advertisements are not included in the figures. Institutions engaged in second-hand trade on the online platform withdraw the advertisements of the vehicles they offer for sale for two reasons.

The first of these is to revise the vehicle price according to changing market conditions and republish the advertisement. Indicata also tracks when the announcements in question are published again. The second reason is sales. The company withdraws the advertisement because it has sold the vehicle. Vehicles that are completely removed from the ad are considered “sale”.
