Colombia Automotive Diagnostic Equipment

About this product:

The demand for automotive diagnostic equipment is evident, taking into consideration that the average lifespan of most of the 3.3 million motor vehicles running in Colombia is twelve to fifteen years. Another factor favoring the diagnostic equipment market is the fact that approximately eighty percent of cargo and passenger’s transportation in Colombia is done by land. The high prices of vehicles and their long lifespan, as well as the poor condition of most roads in Colombia, present quite a challenge for keeping the vehicles in good mechanical condition. The approximately 80,000 motor vehicles produced annually by the three major Colombian assembly plants create a demand for after-market service.

The German market, the largest in Western Europe, is at the forefront of producing and accessorizing cars which look good and drive fast. With its renowned Autobahn, on which speeds of 200 km an hour (125 mph) are common, a highly developed culture of vehicle customization exists. From upscale specialized tuners such as Brabus, AC Schnitzer, Kamei and Irmscher who can charge upwards of $200,000 for a full vehicle customization to the smaller multibrand accessorization shops, German motorists have a wide array of options with which to accessorize their VWs, Opels and BMWs and the other cars that make up their 44 million passenger vehicle market.
