Win with the winners - Future profit pools in the global automotive component market
Measured against 2008, the industry's last "normal year", the value of vehicle components is forecast to rise by EUR 160 bn over the next decade – from around EUR 500 bn in 2008 to more than EUR 660 bn in 2020.
The impetus for growth comes predominantly from China, while the Triad markets are likely to remain more or less stagnant.
This study identifies key growth drivers: pressures to reduce carbon emissions and cut consumption, rising safety standards and greater comfort expectations, but also strong demand for low-price automobiles. The changes will demand the use of more and more electronics and alternative technologies in the powertrain.
