Below is a link to an article in Body Shop Business, which states that future technology will reduce car accidents by 95%.

 

What are your thoughts about the future of the Collision Business?

I totally agree that we can expect less bodyshops in the future, and for that matter less repair shops as well. As the technology increases things like traffic jams, potholes, and natural hazards will be on the avoidance radar and self-drive systems.

 

Sure, there are going to still be repairs needed. Such LynxStarAuto mentioned, but the number of repair facilities will be more than likely less than half of what there are now, maybe even less.

 

To further that discussion, I also believe that we'll see more "totals" with zero body damage or mechanical damage. I'll bet you'll see vehicles totaled due to electronics too, and I'm not just talking about air bag systems but all the other electronic devices. Such as the "self-drive" system that failed. etc... etc..

 

We're slowly approaching the inevitable... throw away car.
