United Kingdom Automotive Body Repair Systems and Equipment
About this product:
UK automotive body repair shops buy tools, equipment, consumables and supplies worth approximately $160 million each year to support the 27 million passenger cars and 6 million trucks, vans and buses registered in Britain. Annual sales of capital equipment used for body repair rise in line with inflation, but show little evidence of real market growth. Electric and
pneumatic power tools and accessories show better prospects for increased sales, and both environmental and health and safety concerns are bringing changes in work practices that will require automotive paint shops to invest in new equipment and facilities. As in most industries that rely on craft skills, there is a constant need for materials and supplies, either as accessories to the power tools used, or as part of a manual finishing process.
