Summary of Automotive

This report examines the key technological and business trends reshaping the global automotive landscape. From the rise of electric and autonomous vehicles to new mobility solutions, automakers and suppliers face both challenges and opportunities in adapting to rapid industry changes. We analyze the automotive industry's transformation across product innovation, manufacturing modernization and business model evolution. Actionable insights and strategic recommendations are provided to help organizations successfully navigate emerging opportunities.

The global automotive market refers to the vast ecosystem encompassing the manufacturing, distribution, sales and consumption of vehicles designed for transporting people and goods. Traditionally centered around internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, the industry is undergoing profound transformation driven by electrification, connectivity, autonomous capabilities and new mobility solutions.

This comprehensive research report delves into the dynamic landscape of the automotive market, investigating its key players, segmentation, trend and growth opportunities. With the global Automotive market projected to reach USD 5807.7 Bn by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 7.05%, understanding the nuances of this industry is crucial for businesses, investors and policymakers.

Regulatory support for clean technologies, declining battery costs and consumer environmental awareness are accelerating EV adoption globally despite supply chain challenges. Meanwhile, autonomous driving capabilities continue advancing towards commercialization over the next decade through ongoing road testing and pilot programs.

Recent Trends and Insights

Over 2.3 million electric cars were sold in the first quarter, about 25% more than in the same period last year. We currently expect to see 14 million in sales by the end of 2023, representing a 35% year-on-year increase with new purchases accelerating in the second half of this year.

Electric cars could account for 18% of total car sales across the full calendar year. National policies and incentives will help bolster sales, while a return to the exceptionally high oil prices seen last year could further motivate prospective buyers.

Ride-hailing continues expanding with Uber reporting gross bookings up 25% in Q1 2022. Profitability remains elusive due to high driver incentives and subsidies. Investments are shifting towards autonomous vehicle deployment.

Digital cockpits are becoming the norm in modern vehicles, offering advanced infotainment, navigation and over-the-air updates. The digital cockpit is a comprehensive in-car experience that integrates various functionalities and interfaces into a unified system.

In 2030-- up to 15% of newly sold cars might be fully autonomous when technical and regulatory issues are resolved. In a more optimistic scenario- fully autonomous cars might account for up to 15% of all passenger cars sold globally by 2030.

Product Insights

Breakthrough technologies like electric vehicles, self-driving systems and advanced connectivity are reshaping automotive product development and the customer experience. New entrants from the technology sector threaten to disrupt existing industry structures if traditional players do not successfully transition to emerging business opportunities and consumer trends.

The shift towards electric vehicles (EVs) is one of the most significant trends in the automotive market. Governments worldwide are introducing stringent emissions regulations, prompting automakers to invest heavily in EV technology. This shift is driven by the need for cleaner, more sustainable transportation solutions. The global electric vehicle market was valued at $344 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach $845.04 billion by 2029, registering a CAGR of 13.7% from 2022 to 2029.

Ride-sharing platforms and on-demand transportation services are complementing and in some cases disrupting traditional ownership models. Automakers and suppliers must now compete in an expanding mobility marketplace valued at over $5 trillion annually according to recent insights, with projections that new business streams could add $1.5 trillion in additional revenue potential by 2030.

Our projections indicate that about one in three kilometres travelled may already include notion sharing by 2030. User preferences will also shift in favour of autonomous mobility at the same time. Based on distance travelled-- we estimate that by 2030-- up to 40% of all traffic may be driven autonomously.
