Description

This report aims to understand the automotive tools industry through automotive technicians since 2007 and identify market opportunities. The most commonly purchased auto tools within the last year are hand tools, closely followed by the power tools purchase rate. Tool storage devices have the lowest rate, which is most likely because of their purpose (storage) and their character (sturdy build). Reliability and quality are identified as top influential factors across all auto tools surveyed. Other top influential factors include warranty, availability, order accuracy, and past experience.
