The automotive diagnostic scan tools market, in terms of value, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2016 to 2021. The market is estimated to be USD 5.45 Billion in 2016, and is projected to reach 7.24 Billion by 2021. The key drivers of this market are increasing consumer preference for technologically advanced automobiles and rise in demand for automotive workshops. Stringency in emission norms also promotes the growth of this market.

The diagnostic scan tools, which are used in many workshops and service stations, form an integral component to detect and diagnose different functions of a vehicle. The application of such tools in the automotive industry is carried out using diagnostic equipment (hardware), diagnostic software and repair and diagnostic data. In automotive applications, the diagnostic scan tools are used to connect to the on-board electrical system for diagnosing the functions of the vehicle.

The automotive diagnostic scan tools market has been segmented on the basis of product type into diagnostic equipment, diagnostic software and repair, and diagnostic data. The diagnostic equipment segment is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of value, in 2016. This can be primarily attributed to the increased automotive production and demand for advanced and do-it-yourself scan tools in these regions.  The diagnostic software segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021.

The automotive diagnostic scan tools market has been segmented by workshop equipment into wheel alignment equipment, handheld tread depth, digital battery tester, automotive paint scan equipment and vehicle emission tester. The automotive vehicle emission tester segment is expected to account for the largest market share, by value, in 2016. The main factors driving the automotive diagnostic scan tools market include increased high-tech workshops and service centers in the automotive industry.

The North American region is estimated to dominate the automotive diagnostic scan tools market, in terms of value, in 2016, with diagnostic equipment being a key contributor to the market in the region. The increasing demand for high-end cars and consumer preference for more accurate diagnostic mechanisms are key factors driving the growth of the automotive diagnostic scan tools market across all regions.

Automotive Diagnostic Scan Tools Market

Restraints of the automotive diagnostic scan tools market:

Despite the high demand for advanced automotive electrical diagnostic software and equipment, this sector still experiences sub-standard practical knowledge, which include, troubleshooting, fault-finding skills, and repairing problems. Although the modern vehicle diagnostic scan tools can generate and identify problems with the help of Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) for any specific issues, there is still a large segment that is misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. This failure has paved the way for the aftermarket boom, within the industry. This problem, coupled with the absence of knowledgeable and skilled labor, hampers the growth of the market. Technicians often remove or replace the whole component on the basis of the diagnostic scan tool trouble codes reading due to lack of know-how. This causes inconvenience for customers, as they are compelled to take multiple trips to dealers to mitigate a single problem, even after paying a high cost for the service.

The global diagnostic scan tool market is dominated by a few major players such as Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), Continental AG (Germany), Denso Corporation (Japan), Delphi Automotive PLC (U.K), and Snap-On Inc. (U.S.), along with regional suppliers. Companies such as AVL List GmbH (Austria) and KPIT (India) are also focusing on developing diagnostic scan tools for current hybrid automotive and future applications. OEMs such as BMW and Porsche prefer to in-house their diagnostic scan tools, in order to maintain uniformity in the quality of the product.
