Global Automotive Diagnostic Scan Tools Market to Reach US$ 59.9 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Increasing Demand For Luxury Vehicles

April 18, 2023 | Automotive Industry

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Automotive Diagnostic Scan Tools Market Report by Offering Type (Diagnostic Hardware, Diagnostic Software, Diagnostic Services), Tool Type (DIY Diagnostic, OEMS Diagnostics, Professional Diagnostics), Propulsion Type (IC Engine Vehicles, Electric Vehicles), Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicle, Commercial Vehicle), and Region 2024-2032,” the global automotive diagnostic scan tools market size reached US$ 37.3 Billion in 2023. Automotive diagnostic scan tools are devices used to diagnose and troubleshoot problems with vehicles. These tools use advanced technology that connects to a vehicle's onboard computer system to read and clear diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), display live data, and perform functions such as reprogramming and coding. Diagnostic scan tools can read and analyze a wide range of data, including engine speed, coolant temperature, and oxygen sensor readings. There are two primary types of diagnostic scan tools: handheld devices and software programs. Among these, handheld devices are portable and easy to use, and they often feature a screen that displays the data gathered from the vehicle. On the other hand, software programs require a computer and a special interface device to connect to the vehicle's onboard computer system. 

Global Automotive Diagnostic Scan Tools Market Trends:

The rising demand for advanced diagnostics across the globe due to the increasing complexity of modern vehicles and their wide range of electronic systems and sensors is primarily driving the automotive diagnostic scan tools market growth. Besides this, the surging need for diagnostic scan tools in aftermarket repair and maintenance that can communicate with a vehicle's onboard computer and retrieve data in real time is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread utilization of the onboard diagnostics II (OBD-II) tool that allows global positioning system (GPS) fleet tracking devices to record information is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. In addition to this, innovative technological advancements, such as the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in automotive diagnostic scan tools to provide more accurate and efficient repairs, real-time information, and predictive maintenance capabilities, are contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the implementation of stringent emission regulations by various governing authorities across the globe is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Concurrent with this, the bolstering expansion of the automotive industry, inflating disposable incomes of individuals, and the surging demand for high-end and luxurious vehicles, are aiding in market expansion. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 59.9 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 5.22% during 2024-2032.
