The market encompasses all services and products related to the repair and refurbishment of vehicles after they have been involved in accidents or collisions. Several factors, such as the number of cars on the road, frequency, and severity of accidents, technological advancements in automotive materials and construction, and the evolving landscape of insurance and regulatory requirements, influence the growth and dynamics of this market.

China Automotive Collision Repair Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

In countries such as India and China, the frequency of road accidents is significantly high due to the high number of vehicles operating on congested roads, which fuels the growth of the market. According to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways India, around 460,000 accidents were reported in 2022, which includes light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles.

The automotive industry is at the forefront of technological innovation, with vehicles becoming increasingly sophisticated, which brings growth opportunities for the repair market, especially with the integration of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and electric vehicles. Repair shops provide premium pricing and differentiation strategies from competitors based on the availability of specialized equipment and the skill set of their employees.

Furthermore, insurance companies play a significant role in the market, often directing repair procedures, parts sourcing, and pricing. Regulations mandating the use of OEM parts further influence the market dynamics, potentially increasing costs and ensuring high-quality repairs that benefit consumers and enhance road safety.

Product Insights

The spare parts segment dominated the market in 2023. The segment includes crash parts, restoration materials, repair materials, and other tools. The demand for spare parts for repair and maintenance grows as the average age of vehicles on the road increases. The high number of accidents in the region causes damage to multiple parts of the vehicle, such as grilles, bumpers, dents, scratches, and others, which fuels the demand for spare parts.

The paints & coatings segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Paints & coatings play a vital role in both the aesthetic and protective aspects of vehicle repair and an increase in the consumer demand for high-quality finishes leads to the segment’s growth. Innovations in color-matching technology have greatly improved the ability to replicate the original paint color and finish, enhancing customer satisfaction. For instance, in September 2020, Nippon Paint India launched the n-Max series of refinish paints designed for use in body shops and collision repair centers to establish enduring collaborations with distributors providing cutting-edge technology at competitive rates while also offering additional valuable services.

Vehicle Insights

The light-duty vehicle segment dominated the market and accounted for 71.1% of revenue share in 2023. The light-duty vehicles segment includes passenger cars, SUVs, and light trucks. This segment is substantially growing due to the high number of such vehicles on the road and their frequency of involvement in collisions compared to heavier vehicles is significantly higher.

Asia Pacific Automotive Collision Repair Market share and size, 2023

The heavy-duty vehicles segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The segment includes trucks, buses, construction equipment, and large multi-axle vehicles. The increasing number of wear and tear in these vehicles, endured during logistics and transportation, accounts for the growth of the market.

Service Channels Insights

The OE (handled by OEMs) segment accounted for the largest market revenue share in 2023. The segment involves using parts and components made by the original vehicle manufacturer for repairs, ensuring that the repaired vehicle maintains its original specifications and safety features. Consumer preferences and awareness of quality and safety also contribute to the segment's growth. Vehicle owners, especially those with newer or premium vehicles, often prefer OEM parts for repairs to maintain their vehicle's value and performance.

DIY (Do It Yourself) is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The segment is driven by vehicle owners' rising interest in undertaking repair projects. The availability of DIY kits and detailed how-to videos on the internet makes it easier for consumers to handle repair projects. DIY segment is cost-saving, and consumers can choose between OEM parts according to their budget and preferences.
