Market Synopsis


Automotive test equipment is used to perform quality checks on automotive and test the performance of vehicles. The test equipment is useful in measuring the oil consumption of the engine, fuel dilution, lubricant aeration, and others. The booming automotive sector directly compliments the increasing demand in the automotive test equipment market.  Automotive test equipment ensures the manufacturing of high-performance vehicles that meet all safety needs of the automotive and the end users of automotive. As safety is a primary and major concern of the automotive users and manufacturers, it directly drives the market of the automotive test equipment.


The global automotive test equipment market is estimated to reach around USD 3 billion by 2025, growing at ~4% CAGR during the forecast period. The growing demand for electric vehicles globally, increasing electrification in vehicles, and rise in stringent emissions norms to prevent environmental impact are the key factors driving this market.


The lack of standard protocols for the development of automotive test equipment, high cost of advanced test equipment, lack of skilled worker, and increasing unmanaged usage of vehicles are considered as the key factors restraining the growth of this market. However, the improving economies of developing countries, growing demand for high-performance vehicles, analyzing real time vehicle data, and increasing demand for on-board diagnostic tools are providing growth opportunities for the global market.


Segmentation: Global Automotive Test Equipment Market


The global automotive test equipment market is segmented into product type, vehicle type, application, and region.


Based on product type, the global market has been segmented into wheel alignment tester, engine dynamometer, chassis dynamometer, and vehicle emission test system. Based on vehicle type, the global market has been segmented into passenger car, light commercial vehicle, and heavy commercial vehicle. Based on application, the global market has been segmented into mobile device-based scan tool, handheld scan tool, pc/laptop-based scan tool, and others.


Geographically, the global automotive test equipment market has been segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the automotive test equipment market due to the rapid integration of advanced features in vehicles and the increase in demand for automotive from developing nations such as India and China. The shift of original equipment manufacturers to this region has led to a decrease in the cost of acquisition of the automotive test equipment. Europe is expected to be the second-largest automotive test equipment market by the end of the forecast period. The high disposable income of end-users and the existing large customer base has led to an increase in the demand for vehicles in the region, which in turn results in increased manufacturing activities by local automotive manufacturers. All this positively led to the growth of the automotive test equipment market in the Europe region.
