Workshop & Services


Digitalisation, electrification, cost pressure and the need for investment (in equipment or know-how) are strongly driving the change process in the workshop business. Service concepts, safety measures and workshop equipment for the repair of electric or hybrid vehicles, access to data, diagnostics, apps, e-mobility, online portals, sustainability, recruiting and changing user behaviour are among the megatrends and challenges currently moving the automotive aftermarket. In addition to the classic range of products in the field of combustion engines, such as oil and lubricants, the exhibitors at Automechanika Frankfurt will be showing above all innovative solutions and new business models for the future.

Parts & Technology Solutions


The entire spectrum of parts and components as well as electronic components & connectivity for cars, motorbikes and commercial vehicles forms the foundation of Automechanika Frankfurt in the East Area.

From classic themes such as chassis, standard mechanical parts, interior and exterior, bodywork and components for conventional drive systems to the latest trend themes: Remanufacturing and new materials, the industry is at home here.

The topics of engine electronics, vehicle lighting and the future-oriented networking of electronic components are also represented here. International suppliers, manufacturers and partners in the sector are presenting more and more sustainable, climate-conscious and intelligent solutions.

Accessories & Customizing


The trend towards individualisation is unbroken. Lifestyle products give the vehicle the necessary coolness and make it unique. Technical components for engine and transmission, safety systems, a high-quality vehicle interior and the comprehensive range of transport/storage systems increase comfort. At the planned Car Media Sound Finale or the Car Wrapping Area, visitors will experience unique moments at Automechanika 2022.

Car Wash & Care

The expected upheaval in the vehicle industry poses new challenges for the vehicle washing and care industry: Electrification, sustainability (water treatment) and safety are more than ever the focus of innovations!

Connectivity, digitalisation, e-mobility, service concepts, new technologies, cost pressure, changing user behaviour all have an impact on the washing and care process of trucks, cars, motorbikes and bicycles of the future and are relevant topics in all trades of car wash operators, car dealerships, workshops and vehicle care providers.

Body & Paint

The range of exhibits in the body & paint sector includes body repair, painting and corrosion protection, smart repair and new materials. In the fringe programme, the discussions revolve around important topics for the future, such as innovative strategies and sustainable investments, against the backdrop of high cost pressures that are expected to continue. The topic of young talent and the shortage of skilled workers is also one of the focal points.

Data & Connectivity



Access to data and the networking of vehicles are currently dominating discussions in the automotive aftermarket. This is because they will significantly influence the interaction between industry, workshop and trade in the future.



There are currently a number of challenges to overcome in the transformation to electromobility. The lack of charging station infrastructure, development, production and difficulties in the procurement of raw materials, batteries and semiconductors are moving the industry. Stable supply chains, regionalisation among suppliers and the qualification of software developers are needed. Electromobility will also significantly change the maintenance, diagnosis and repair of vehicles. During Automechanika, suppliers can therefore present themselves and familiarise trade visitors with the new technologies.

Automechanika Innovation Awards


We celebrate innovations: Especially trend-setting innovations are honoured with the Automechanika Innovation Awards. For more than 25 years, the internationally coveted award has been presented in 9 categories by an independent jury of experts.

The entries from exhibiting companies are judged according to the following criteria: Innovation performance and solution excellence, functionality, ease of use, user benefits and cost-effectiveness, aftermarket relevance, safety, durability and quality, as well as their contribution to climate protection, environmental protection, resource conservation and sustainability.
