Italian translation:secondo mercato oppure si lascia aftermarket
Explanation:
Nel campo del marketing automobilistico, l'aftermarket è il mercato di tutti gli accessori, tradotto appunto come secondo mercato, ma più generalmente lasciato in inglese. Gli specialisti sanno di che si tratta.
Suggerisco di lasciarlo in inglese e fra parentesi mettere (secondo mercato) una prima volta poi se si ripete nel testo, mantenere l'inglese.

Servizi assistenza


Explanation:
Eurodicatom provides:

1)Aftermarket = Servizi assistenza
2)Aftermarket = Dopomercato
3)Aftermarket = riparatori

I would wager on number one....
However, in order to be sure I would need the entire para.

post-vendita


Explanation:
Post-vendita is the right translation if "after market" refers to all activities provided by a Company after its product has been sold (training for users, repair and so on).
But I have a doubt and I should see the context more in details: in the case of air conditioning, after market could mean the sale of the equipment after the hot season, when you don't need the product any more and you can pay it at a lower price. If this is the case, you could translate it "a prezzo di liquidazione".
