* Background to the shortage of auto mechanics *
The shortage of auto mechanics is becoming increasingly serious in Japan, and this is a common issue in all fields, including commercial vehicles, buses, trucks, and taxis. According to a survey (*1) by the Japan Automobile Mechanics Promotion Association (hereinafter referred to as JASPA), the number of mechanics has been on the decline from 2017 to 2020, and the industry as a whole is facing serious manpower shortages. We are facing a shortage. In addition, the average age of maintenance personnel is 46.7 years old as of 2020, an increase of 0.3 years from the previous year, and the aging process is progressing. *1 JASPA “Summary of the results of a survey on the actual state of automobile maintenance industry” (2024.06.26)
