Description

This report aims to understand the automotive repair tool industry through automotive technicians since 2007 and identify market opportunities. Hand tools are the most commonly purchased automotive tools in 2013, followed by power tools. Tools storage devices have the lowest rate of all, which is most likely because of their purpose (storage) and the character (sturdy build). Reliability is identified as a top influential factor across all auto tools surveyed. Snap-on is the most prevalently owned brand. Snap-on’s dominance, however, in the auto tools market varies, with its largest gap in the handheld diagnostic tools market. Overall, technicians most prevalently use mobile tool distributors for their auto tool purchases.
