The Mechanical Repair Sector Landscape – 2022 report looks at the impact over the past two years of factors including the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain disruptions, the war in Eastern Europe and other factors with long and short term implications, including:

  • Inflation and rising gas prices 
  • Changes in driving habits, post-pandemic 
  • The impact of EVs and advances in vehicle technology 
  • Improved vehicle quality and dependability 
  • Technician shortage and the right to repair 

In addition to providing statistics on the size and structure of the Canadian aftermarket, the Mechanical Repair Sector Landscape – 2022 report examines the disruptive factors and explores how they have the potential to create both threats and opportunities for the industry and for AIA Canada members.
