High growth rate of vehicle per thousand inhabitants coupled with limited number of authorized service centers and workshops have in turn led to significant demand for do-it-yourself kits

Do-it-yourself (DIY) kits offer easy operability and have gained significant popularity in the recent past. This has led to significant demand for these kits. These DIY kits have led to significant reduction in demand for diagnostic equipment and are projected to hamper the overall diagnostic scan tools market growth over the forecast period.

Advancements in technology in the development of communication and compactness of diagnostic equipment devices have led to significant growth in adoption of these devices. Handheld equipment and wireless communication-based equipment offer features such as mobility and efficiency in detection of automotive internal conditions and faults. These technologies are increasingly gaining traction. In conjunction with these factors, growing motorization rate per thousand inhabitants every year across the globe, which was 182 vehicles per 1000 inhabitants in 2015, as per OICA, is expected to propel growth of the diagnostic scan tools market over the forecast period.

Based on the product type, diagnostic equipment (hardware) segment was dominant in the global diagnostic scan tools market share in 2016, and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This aids in fault detection reliance on the analog and digital components to enable functionality of such devices. However, software segment is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period, as software analyzes the complex codes to perform diagnosis of powertrain, chassis, and the body. Additionally, introduction of compact tools to reduce space footprint and incorporation of wireless communications is expected to significantly contribute to growth of the market.

Europe diagnostic scan tool market was dominant in terms of value share in 2016, owing to high utilization of the hardware systems in the region. Moreover, increasing consumer preference for more precise diagnosis for their vehicles has led to increased proliferation of advanced devices and systems. Some of the key players in the global diagnostic scan tools market are Actia SA, AVL List GmbH, Continental AG, Delphi Automotive PLC, Denso Corporation, Hickok Incorporated, Kpit Technologies, Robert Bosch GmbH, Snap on Incorporated, and Softing AG.

Automotive diagnostic scan tools have applications in service stations and workstations, for diagnosing automotive conditions. Growing structural complexity of vehicles, replacement of mechanical systems with the electrical components, and growing number of electronic control units have led to increasing demand for these systems in workshops and other services centers to reduce the effort and time required for maintenance of the vehicle.

Market Dynamics

Growing stringency of regulations regarding emission and economy standards, primarily in Europe and North America, to reduce carbon footprints have led to increasing demand for effective maintenance of the vehicles. For instance, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, lists the federal emission and related sulfur standards, require utilization of advanced components and engine architecture. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, number of ECUs in a high end or luxury cars can reach up to 150. Requirement to efficiently diagnose the problems with the help of diagnostic scan tools is expected to be among the prominent growth drivers of the market. Moreover, ability of the advanced systems to diagnose problems in multiple automotive models utilizing a single scanner has also led to significant increase in adoption of the systems at service centers is fueling growth of the global diagnostic scan tools market.
