The future of the automotive industry

SVP supports international companies as they enter the German, Austrian and Swiss markets. We have tremendous sector-specific expertise when it comes to market or location analyses, as well as identifying clients or business partners in the DACH region. On the whole, the automotive sector in Germany and around the world is in the midst of the greatest revolution since the invention of the car itself. New powertrains, electronic engines and, last but certainly not least, the driverless car are having a drastic impact on the world of OEMs, suppliers and retailers. Companies must tackle the challenge of developing compelling technological designs and business models while simultaneously achieving greater product cost optimisation, for example by devising new platform strategies, in order to compete with new competitors, including those outside the industry.

Whether lorry or passenger vehicles, the automobile looks different today than ever before. Networking, driver assistance systems and infotainment are evolving and will soon be standard. In addition, players have to meet the demands of future mobility behaviours with new sharing, telematic and logistics designs. With this landscape in mind, SVP carries out market, potential and trend analyses, pinpoints the right international partners or suppliers for new technologies in order to keep its clients a step ahead of tough competition.
