Summary

The global automotive industry - worth $3.5 trillion in annual revenues - faces four concurrent disruptive threats: the connected car, the electric vehicle, autonomous driving technology and the concept of transport-as-a-service. Each threat is potentially existential to legacy carmakers who operate in a low growth, low margin sector that rattles with over capacity, and which is seeing its supply lines reset by cumulative advances in enabling technologies typically deployed by Tier-1 automobile sub-system suppliers. This report focuses on autonomous driving technology.

On a 10-year view, the macro socio-economic effects of urban millennial and Generation Z attitudes to car ownership and mobility will have a dramatic effect and yield a motor industry largely based on selling rides, increasingly deploying autonomous mobility, and monetizing miles: an emergent industry that will probably be as large as today’s automotive industry. The report summaries the key trends we expect to see in the automotive industry over the next two to three years.


Scope

  • This report focuses on autonomous driving technology.
  • It highlights some of the important players in this space across three categories: semiconductors, specialist components, and autonomous driving systems. It also includes a fourth category, transport networks - ride hailing apps pioneered by the likes of Lyft and Uber - because these networks will provide early and sustained demand for autonomous vehicles.
  • The report identifies the main industry growth drivers that are re-shaping the oversupplied global auto industry.
