ETI Marketing Research Projects
The Equipment and Tool Institute conducts Market Research projects to assist our members in bringing new and improved equipment and tools to the marketplace. ETI surveys approximately 25,000 automotive repair facilities in an effort to find out more about their familiarity with and use of tools, equipment, services and technology. ETI members use this research to provide aftermarket shops with new and improved tools, equipment and services.
The Market Research Studies are valued at $15,000 each. Complete studies including spreadsheets, PowerPoints and documents are included in these studies. They are available to Full ETI Members at no cost and to Associate members for $1,500. The Market Research Studies are not available to non-members. Companies under $10,000,000 in size can join the Institute as an associate member for $1,000 a year. Click here to learn more about ETI membership.

Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) and Telematics Research Project
As a follow up to ETI's first Market Research Study on Vehicle Flash Reprogramming, the Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI) continues to assist its members in bringing new and improved equipment and tools to the marketplace.
ETI's second Market Research Study covers Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) and specific questions on the growing trend of the OEM’s to equip vehicles with Telematics. The survey was designed to collect data in order to provide our industry with information that is valuable for the repair of vehicles on the road today.
Automotive repair facilities were surveyed in an effort to find out more about their familiarity with TPMS and Telematics. ETI will use this research to help all segments of the automotive industry provide aftermarket shops with better tool and equipment solutions. To get a flavor of what is available, we have put together two videos covering both survey presentations. The first is by Dan Brass covering TPMS and the second is by Ben Johnson covering Telematics.
