Automotive testing tools are used for testing, detecting, and improving the electrical circuits in automotive to determine the proper set-up, adjustment, and maintenance of electrical systems and control panels. Automotive electrical testing tools include multimeters, circuit testers, Amp clamps, and scanning tools. Multimeters are the most widely used automotive electrical testing tools, which are used to perform the functions of ammeters, ohmmeters, and voltmeters. It measures alternating current, direct current, alternating voltage, direct voltage, and resistance in electrical circuits of automotives. Some advanced multimeters are also used to measure temperature, frequency, capacitance, vacuum, and pressure. Automotive circuit testers are used for identifying trace wires and cables without damaging the insulation. It determines the presence or absence of an electronic voltage. Test light, test lamp, and mains tester are some of the circuit testers used in automotives. The market environment for electrical testing tools changes frequently with innovations. This market is also affected by environmental conditions since extreme heat and cold can have adverse impact on the functioning of the electrical testing tools.
The automotive testing tools market is supported by the rise in vehicle production globally. The markets of Asia Pacific and Europe are dominant in the production of vehicles. With a highly developed manufacturing sector supported by advanced technologies, these developing nations produce high-end vehicles. Apart from supply of vehicles, the market also has sufficient demand for these vehicles owing to a population with high disposable income. High disposable income supported by improved standard of living and busier lifestyle patterns, fuel the demand for more vehicles. Economic development is also characterised by increase in trade within and between nations across the globe. All these factors lead to an increase in demand for transport to facilitate easier movements. Use of inexpensive testing tools, especially testing screwdrivers can cause accidents in case of a short circuit and high energy faults. High advanced equipment like digital multimeters are costly. Therefore, safety concerns related to the use of inexpensive mechanical testing tools and high cost of digital testing tools are the major restraining factors of this market.
The market for automotive electrical testing tools can be segmented by types of tools, vehicle types, and by application. By types of tools the products include battery testers, circuit testers, ignition testers, and multi-testers. By application, the market can be segmented on the basis of regular maintenance, inspection purpose, electrical engineering design, and quality control among others. By type of vehicles, the use of automotive electrical test tools can be segmented into two wheelers and passenger cars, which is further bifurcated into SUVs and others, commercial vehicles, and aircrafts.
The global market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America.Asia Pacific leads the market followed by Europe and North America. Asia Pacific is characterised by a highly advanced and technologically endowed manufacturing sector. Europe, the manufacturing hub of luxury vehicles also has huge growth potential. Both these regions are leading manufacturers of vehicles as well. In Asia Pacific, Japan, China, and other South East Asian nations leads the market. India is emerging and improving its manufacturing and automobile sector and is expected to show commendable growth over the forecast period.
