As we look to 2022, many Americans are taking advantage of their new full-time remote work flexibility to move away from cities and into more suburban and rural areas. This trend has the automotive maintenance franchise industry poised to make large gains in 2022. 

According to Research and Markets, the Global Automotive Market consisted of 85.32 million vehicles in 2020 and is expected to reach 122.83 million vehicles by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.71% from 2020-2030. The key market drivers for this growth are constant investments in research and development of new technologies and innovations such as electric vehicles, customers' demand for unique and costly features, and a rise in need for more utility and all-purpose vehicles in more suburban and rural climates. Globally, the automotive industry is being propelled by multiple factors such as the high supply of skilled labor lowering the cost, and low-cost steel production.
