Vehicles play a vital role in our daily life; therefore, in order to keep them in good condition, regular maintenance becomes highly essential. Various equipment are crucial for vehicle maintenance, such as tire changer, wheel balancer, emission equipment, lifting equipment, and others. Emission norms for vehicles are becoming increasingly stringent. Moreover, there have been continuous changes in the automotive sector, such as adoption of airbags for safety purpose, lightweight engine for higher fuel efficiency, and use of electronics for a more comfortable ride. In order to maintain these components, advanced equipment are required. This fuels the demand for garage equipment, as vehicle owners need certification after a certain interval of time from certified garages.
Upsurge in the sale of vehicles in different countries have escalated overall vehicle miles driven globally by approximately 2% to 4% during the recent years, which are propelling the market for vehicles in the developed regions. Stringent emission norms by regulatory bodies are propelling the market of emission-related equipment, such as smoke meter, gas analyzer, and others.
Digitalization of automotive systems is increasing at a significant pace, which requires diagnostic tools for diagnosing and repairing systems, such as, advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), instrument console of the vehicle, and functionality of the sensors and digital locks. Garages are likely to require enhanced capacity for fabrication of vehicles owing to the rising concern about vehicle maintenance and modification. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost them automotive garage equipment market during the forecast period.
The global automotive garage equipment market can be segmented based on garage type, equipment type, vehicle type, and region. In terms of garage type, the automotive garage equipment market can be segregated into OEM-based dealership and independent garages. The OEM dealership segment is likely to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period, as compared to the independent garages segment, due to the rising use of luxury vehicles that require higher grade and high-quality maintenance systems that independent garage owners are unlikely to afford. OEM-based dealership has several advantages over independent garages, such as skilled technicians, easy availability of original parts, and usage of advanced equipment, which are boosting the popularity of OEM dealership-based service centers among consumers.
