In a discussion on car wheels, someone commented that "Stock wheels are usually more expensive than aftermarket."
When I looked up aftermarket on Google definition states that, it is
The market for spare parts, accessories, and components, esp. for motor vehicles.
However, I'm confused as to which sense of market it applies here to the definition, for example one of the sources I searched was AHDE:
- A public gathering held for buying and selling merchandise.
- A place where goods are offered for sale.
A store or shop that sells a particular type of merchandise: a vegetable market.
(a) The business of buying and selling a specified commodity: the soybean market.
(b) A market price.
(c) A geographic region considered as a place for sales: grain for the foreign market; the West Coast market.
(d) A subdivision of a population considered as buyers: cosmetics for the upscale market.
The opportunity to buy or sell; extent of demand for merchandise: a big market for gourmet foods.
(a) An exchange for buying and selling stocks or commodities: securities sold on the New York market.
(b) The entire enterprise of buying and selling commodities and securities: The market has been slow recently.
Or is there another suitable definition that's not on this list?
