Automotive Collision Repair Market is Expected to be Flourished by Growing Adoption of Advanced Collision Repair Technologies


The automotive collision repair market involves repairing vehicular damage caused in road accidents. It includes body and paint services, replacement and repair of vehicle parts like bumpers, doors, and fenders, and other mechanical and electrical repair works. With rising vehicle miles traveled globally every year, the number of road accidents and collision damages has increased significantly. This has boosted the demand for automotive collision repair services across the world.

Advanced collision repair technology solutions like laser scanning, measuring robots, and repair workflow management software are now commonly used at collision repair shops to improve efficiency, quality, and turnaround time. Body shops equipped with such technologies can repair vehicles faster at lower costs.

The global automotive collision repair market is estimated to be valued at US$ 221.87 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period 2023 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:
Growing adoption of advanced collision repair technologies is expected to be a key driver for market growth over the forecast period. Laser scanning and measuring robots help detect damages precisely and quickly. Repair process management software integrates operations to streamline workflows. They allow body shops to repair more vehicles in less time. This boosts shop revenues and becomes an important capability for shops to attract more customers. Moreover, increasing vehicle miles traveled every year globally raises collisions and damages, driving greater demand for repair services. While higher costs of advanced technologies may limit widespread adoption initially, declining technology prices over time are expected to remove this barrier.”

Segment Analysis
The automotive collision repair market is segmented by vehicle type, repair type, end use and region. Based on vehicle type, the passenger vehicles segment dominates the market and accounts for around 65% share owing to higher production volumes of passenger vehicles globally.
