Automotive tier 1 suppliers are facing unprecedented industry transformation in electrification along with economic uncertainty. Download this report on the top 20 global suppliers for a deep analysis of their historic margins, as well as solutions for how suppliers could cope with growing pressures and new requirements in research, development and design
Following a decade in which the top 20 automotive tier 1 suppliers enjoyed relatively stable profits, many suppliers are entering the new year struggling with declining vehicle sales and fewer new model launches in the face of a global slowdown. At the same time, tightening vehicle emissions regulations and wider automotive industry shifts in technology, most notably to develop electrified powertrains and electric vehicles, require automotive suppliers to make huge investments and capital outlays. The impacts are felt across the automotive value chain, with impacts for car design and engineering services as well.
Automotive suppliers will increasingly have to find savings, including in design, engineering and materials, to stay competitive, protect margins and increase spending for research and development in CASE (connected, autonomous, shared, electrified) technology – even with returns on investment for these companies far from certain. With this in mind, the 2020s are set to be a challenging decade, but also one filled with new opportunities.
