6 Auto Repair Trends In 2022

6 Auto Repair Trends In 2022


Keeping up with the intricacies of the auto-repair world can be a hassle. We are here to help. It’s a new year, and with it comes new trends to keep an eye on. Don't just be prepared this year, get ahead of the game with these 6 trends to watch for in 2022.

More reliable vehicles

As technology advances, vehicles are becoming more reliable than ever before. New synthetic engine oils are designed to last longer before it needs to be replaced, and with dealerships offering repair and maintenance services years after the vehicle is purchased, the role of auto-repair shops will shift dramatically. 

 Increased vehicle age

Seeing as today’s cars are built to last longer and with limited availability to new and used vehicles, older vehicles are coming into repair shops more often. Economic uncertainty  caused by the pandemic contributed to a fall in new car sales and customers are opting to repair their older vehicles. This trend emphasizes the importance of finding a reliable source for older parts.

Challenges in sourcing parts

With the increase in older vehicles needing parts, sourcing said parts has become more challenging. The current pandemic also fuels this trend. Finding a reliable, good parts vendor has never become more important than ever.

Recovering from the pandemic

At the start of the corona-virus outbreak, car usage saw a sharp decline as people were required to work from home. The rate of car usage has seen a recovery over the course of 2021 and will be expected to continue to rise throughout 2022 as lockdown measures are eased. Due to this increase, more customers are expected to carry out servicing that was delayed due to the lockdown. This might increase the demand for certain parts and customers are urged to prepare and plan accordingly.

A decrease in the number of body shops

According to businesswire.com, the number of UK body shops has fallen by 20% over the past decade, from 3,950 in 2008 to  2,162 in 2018. This downward trend is expected to continue over the next few years and will see an increase in the cost of repairs.

The 2030 Automotive Revolution

The biggest phenomena expected to disrupt both the automotive and auto-repair industry is what most people refer to as the “2030 Automotive Revolution”. This includes four technologically-driven trends: diverse mobility, autonomous driving, electrification, and connectivity.

One way in which the 2030 Automotive Revolution will impact the auto-repair industry is in relation to autonomous driving. Seeing as new automotive technologies are being introduced, service technicians will be presented with new job opportunities. This is outside of the continued need for car parts like tires and brakes that will need servicing.

As the auto-repair industry continues evolving, you can trust TVP to adapt; meeting your vehicular needs every step of the way.
