elcome to the 2019 Scan Tool Spec Guide, brought to you by Professional Tool & Equipment News,
Professional Distributor and Fleet Maintenance magazines.

The mission of any vehicle service shop is to maintain and
repair vehicles as efficiently as possible. Technicians strive to
provide high quality workmanship in order to get customers'
vehicles back on the road quickly and keep them there. In order to
do this, technicians need various tools and equipment: everything
from basic hand tools to computerized diagnostic scan tools
providing minute details about virtually every vehicle system.
According to the most recent PTEN purchasing study
(published in the April issue of PTEN and Professional Distributor
magazines), a full 90 percent of the 485 shop owners and
technicians surveyed said they already own a scan tool. And, the
scan tool market is expected to continue growing, with 58 percent
surveyed saying they plan to purchase a scan tool this year.

A GROWING MARKET

Scan tools are particularly important when diagnosing vehicles
with the latest technologies onboard. New infotainment systems
control everything from the radio to climate control; advanced
driver assistance systems (ADAS) can utilize cameras and other
sensors to provide steering, acceleration, and brake input in
some instances, all while monitoring the vehicle's surroundings;
emissions controls are more stringent than ever to meet strict
government regulations; and hybrid and full-electric vehicles use
high tech batteries and components that can only be diagnosed

using a scan tool.
A 2019 Global Market Insights report, Automotive Diagnostic
Scan Tools Market Report, 2025, estimates the scan tool market
will increase from $33.91 billion last year to nearly $50 billion by
2025. In addition to the latest vehicle technologies, the report
attributes the rise to increased overall vehicles sales and a higher
number of repair shops.

WHICH SCAN TOOL IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

While scan tools and diagnostic information are available from
OEMs, these may not be practical for every shop to purchase
and continually update considering the range of makes the shop
services. Aftermarket scan tools are typically compatible with a
variety of vehicle makes, making them a more pragmatic solution
in many cases. In fact, over 40 percent of PTEN purchasing study
respondents said they only use aftermarket scan tools. With a
wide variety of aftermarket scan tools available, choosing the one
best suited for your shop comes down to your needs.
The 2019 Scan Tool Spec Guide compares the most up-todate information from 27 aftermarket scan tool manufacturers.
Take a look at the next several pages and discover the convenient
comparisons in the OBD-II Generic, OBD-II Enhanced, and Heavy
Duty categories. Keep this guide on-hand as you consider the best
scan tool for your shop.
