Rise in the number of industries and employment and transformative government policies has led to an increase in per capita income of the population in various countries. For instance, according to the statistics of World Bank Group, the GDP of the global population, which is measured in terms of purchasing power parity, has tripled in the past few decades. This increase in purchasing power of the global population has led to an increase in the demand for vehicles across the globe. This increase in sales of vehicles is a major factor driving the global automotive on-board diagnostics market.

Increase in awareness about vehicle safety has led to the incorporation of various electronic systems in vehicles, which, in turn, has increased the complexity of vehicle architecture for mechanics to identify the fault during aftermarket repair. These advancements in vehicle architecture drive the demand for automotive on-board diagnostics, which assist mechanics in identifying the fault in vehicles without much hassle.


Consistent rise in GDP of the global population has boosted disposable income, which, in turn, is driving the sales and production of vehicles. This rise in sales and production activities of vehicles across the globe has boosted the global automotive on-board diagnostics market.

Increase in awareness about safety, vehicular emissions, and other such concerns has prompted government agencies to mandate the integration of certain on-board devices in vehicles. This mandatory integration of various automotive components compliant with on-board diagnostics is propelling the automotive on-board diagnostics market across the globe.

Growing industrialization across continents has fueled trade activities, thus increasing the fleet of commercial vehicles on-road. Rise in the number of commercial vehicle fleet has augmented the demand for telematics solutions among fleet owners for effectively managing their vehicles’ health and reducing the downtime of vehicles. This increase in demand for telematics from commercial vehicle fleet owners is driving the global automotive on-board diagnostics market.


The recent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted majority of businesses across the globe, owing to forced shutdown of companies and trade activities. This caused the global economy to contract to its lowest growth rate. Disruption in supply chains of the automotive sector hampered the production of vehicles. Moreover, the demand for new vehicles also reduced, as people are restraining themselves from spending money on non-essential products and services. These factors resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the demand for automotive on-board diagnostic devices.

Rise in popularity of electric vehicles render the conventional applications as well as on-board diagnostic devices obsolete, thus restraining the global automotive on-board diagnostic devices market
