1.1 Definition and scope of the study

Roadworthiness testing is a standardised regulatory procedure, based on the visual findings of the approved inspector, the measurements taken on the brake test bench and the results of the exhaust gas analyser.

It is compulsory to be able to drive on the road because it allows the detection of possible failures capable of harming both the environment and the safety of road users. There are many types of vehicles subject to technical inspection and some are subject to specific regulations. However, according to the Central Technical Organisation, we can distinguish between technical inspections for light vehicles and those for heavy vehicles. The world market for roadworthiness testing is dominated by Europe, with the United States in second place. On the other hand, the emerging countries contribute strongly to the growth of the market, explained by the increase in disposable income.

The French technical inspection market is very dynamic, with growth in turnover increasing in recent years. The legal aspect is also essential because the constant regulatory changes have a significant impact on the market players. Although there are more than 6,000 approved inspection centres, the sector is not very fragmented. Indeed, only a few brands hold more than 85% of the market share, including the French group Sakar through its brand Autovision.

Although the sector has proved resilient in the face of the Covid 19 crisis with a 2.17% growth over 2019, the sector is poised for a transformation. The rise of electric cars, driven by the European Commission's objectives, will mark a technological transition of the sector, as specific training and equipment are required.

The study makes a clear distinction between leasing, operational leasing and fleet management, which are different functions but are often performed by the same major players in the sector
