Reinventing the auto industry

Autonomous vehicles, mobility as a service (MaaS), and electrification are disrupting the auto industry. While there’s disagreement over how fast and how far the trends will grow, they’re likely to act as an accelerant for each other and move increasingly fast once they reach a tipping point.

It’s essential for OEMs, suppliers, and other firms in the value chain to track the progress of each of these three trends as they interact and enable one another to get ready for the fourth one — a massive reorganization of the manufacturing value chain. Companies need to understand the position their products and services occupy along the industry’s ultimate commercialization pathway.
