I need some feedback for the following sentence. I don't seem to get it:

"Another variable is the percentage of any given part that automakers produce captively."

Context:
For OEMs, equipment sales depend on the number, size, and complexity of cars and trucks produced in a given year. - Above sentence - However,some of it is distributed as replacement parts to the aftermarket, which comprises new car dealers, a few major parts distributors, and thousands os small jobbers and other local firms.
