In day-to-day life, electronic systems in vehicles have become much more advanced, making it easier to identify any damages. In the past few years, the electronic systems had their own procedures where a large number of different tools were used to analyze a single vehicle. This procedure was done manually; which was tiresome and time consuming. To overcome this, the garage equipment manufacturers developed a standard tool to diagnose the number of vehicles.
The automotive diagnostic scan tools were then used to diagnose any fault in a vehicle by plugging the cable into the vehicle's diagnostic connector and running a full scan. The major advantage of diagnostic scan tools is that it is easy to identify the fault and repair more quickly.
Automotive diagnostic scan tools are a combination of software and electronic devices software; which are used as interface with diagnostic systems in vehicles. The importance of diagnostic scan tools in automobiles is increasing rapidly due to the shift of consumer’s preference from manual to sophisticated automated diagnostics systems. Automated diagnostic scan tools are used for the purpose of detecting and analyzing the malfunctions of electronic systems in vehicles.
As such, it is vital for automobile users to fix the problems in vehicles. Such tools also enable the reprogramming and upgradation of the control modules in automobiles. With the advancement in technology, there has been a transition in diagnostic scan tools, just like any other automotive components. Diagnostic scan tools of today are highly efficient and sophisticated, which can analyze complex codes while performing diagnostics in the vehicle’s powertrain, body, and chassis. These tools are largely used in service stations for all types of automobiles ranging from light consumer vehicles to heavy consumer vehicles.

The automotive & transportation industry is amongst the most exposed verticals to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and is currently amidst unprecedented uncertainty. COVID-19 is expected to have a significant impact on the supply chain and product demand in the automotive sector. The industry's concern has moved on from being centered on supply chain disruption from China to the overall slump in demand for automotive products. The demand for commercial vehicles is expected to plummet with the shutdown of all non-essential services. Furthermore, changes in consumer buying behavior owing to uncertainty surrounding the pandemic may have serious implications on the near future growth of the industry. Meanwhile, liquidity shortfall and cash crunch have already impacted the sales of fleet operators, which is further expected to widen over the next few months. We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, and assessing its impact on the growth of the automotive & transportation industry. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
