Global Automotive Repair and Maintenance Services Market- Trends:

Growing adoption of remove vehicle diagnostics systems

Global Automotive Repair and Maintenance Services Market- Restraints:
Rise of Electric Vehicles
The increase in demand for electric vehicles is a significant barrier to the market's expansion. Electric vehicles (EVs) are vehicles that can be charged from an external source of electricity, such as the electricity stored in rechargeable battery packs, drives, or wall sockets. Due to the fact that these cars are electric, they contribute to better air quality and a decrease in health issues brought on by air pollution by reducing harmful air pollution. Additionally, using renewable energy to recharge the EV will result in less greenhouse gas emissions. EVs assist in lessening the negative effects on the environment as a result. As a result, they are seeing greater customer adoption.
EVs don't need oil changes because they run on electric engines, though. The need for providers of repair and maintenance services is also eliminated because they have fewer moving parts that rarely malfunction. Additionally, customers can repair EVs themselves using online-purchased parts or remotely using over-the-air updates. Providers of repair and maintenance services will be limited to damaged vehicles that have been in accidents. Therefore, the increase in EV demand during the forecast period may have a negative impact on the rate of global market growth.
