It discusses unit shipments, revenue, average price, distribution channel share, and major participants market share for four product types namely, ball joints, sway bar links, tie rod ends, and control arms. The base year for analysis is 2017 and the forecast period is from 2018 to 2024. The European steering aftermarket is expected to show moderate growth in unit shipments in the coming years. Increase in Vehicles in Operation (VIO), coupled with the rising average vehicle age, is the primary factor that drives the unit shipment during the forecast period. Overall, unit shipments will grow marginally, as the market is mature and is consolidated. Additionally, due to the marginal increase in average price per unit, revenue will experience a relatively higher growth. Key channel partners in this segment are warehouse distributors and retailers. The shares of OES and warehouse distributors are expected to decrease, whereas the share of retailers and e-Retailers are expected to increase during the forecast period. The product segments of control arms and sway bar links will drive overall market growth, whereas ball joints and tie rod ends are expected to decline marginally during the forecast period. Distribution groups with their increasing bargaining power will restrict the price increase due to which the overall average price is expected to grow marginally during the forecast period. Key market participants include ZF-TRW, Federal Mogul, Febi Bilstein, Delphi, and Dorman. As this is a mature market with less scope for significant product differentiation and marginally increasing unit shipments, market shares are expected to diversify due to increasing competition during the forecast period. Improving on factors such as fill rate, product availability, application coverage, and gaining big customer accounts will enable growth, as a major part of the revenue share would be through private label brands in the future. This study will present analytical findings of the following: Total Class 1-3 steering components units and by product type Total Class 1-3 steering components revenue and by product type Average Class 1-3 steering components pricing at manufacturer level and by product type Total Class 1-3 steering components distribution channel analysis and by product type Total Class 1-3 steering components major participants market shares and by product type Wed, 9 May 2018 00:00:00 +0100 M&A, Investment Trends and Opportunities in the Global Mobility Space, 2017 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD9A-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD9A-01-00-00-00 The global shared mobility market has been expanding at a tremendous pace.

Mon, 30 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Automotive ECUs for ADAS and Autonomous Driving Systems, North America and Europe, 2017 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD81-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD81-01-00-00-00 With the advent of autonomous driving, humans are slowly being asked to relinquish control to the vehicle. However, in the near future, as the automotive industry paves the way from manually driven vehicles to fully autonomous vehicles via semi-autonomous vehicles, changes in the vehicle E/E architecture that help achieve this transition should be scrutinized closely. This study analyzes the transition of autonomous ecosystem from ADAS ECUs to the ECUs and E/E architecture required to enable autonomous driving. The current market is dominated by ADAS ECUs supporting L2 features and vehicles on road are yet to advance from L2; however, suppliers are in the process of developing ECUs for HAD and AD. The regulatory mandate of LDW and AEB will drive the demand for ADAS ECUs in the near future. However, the traditional approach of adding discreet ECUs for every new feature will affect the performance of an autonomous vehicle by adding complexity to the E/E architecture and slowing down the communication of safety critical information. Due to increase in complexity and cost, domain-controlled architecture and Ethernet backbone will be important to future E/E development. Domain -controlled architecture will support autonomous driving by enabling high-speed communication for critical information and will allow easy development of fail operational system. From domain-controlled E/E architecture, it will eventually evolve to a centralized architecture. Early mover advantage in the autonomous ecosystem has gained NVIDIA ample traction while Intel s greater resources have enabled Intel to set up a robust product portfolio through acquisition, Mobileye in particular. NXP and Renesas are pioneers in the automotive semiconductor market and have ample experience in manufacturing automotive-grade semiconductors.

Disrupting the last mile 5 business models transforming logistics http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-market-insight.do?id=298424243 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-market-insight.do?id=298424243 Tue, 27 Mar 2018 07:13:30 +0100 Global Electric Vehicle Market Outlook, 2018 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MDAB-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MDAB-01-00-00-00 The electric vehicle market reached the 1.2-million sales mark for the first time, with more than 165 models available for sale. China is leading the market with 48% market share followed by Europe with 26%. Solid-state batteries are likely to be the 'game changers' of future battery chemistries, as they render 2.5 times higher density than lithium-ion. In the last 6 months, more than 10 automakers have announced future EV launch plans. Based on the announcements, EVs now have a market potential of about 25 million units that will be sold by 2025; more than 400 models will be made available. The Tesla Gigafactory is currently 35% operational and aims to produce 50 GWh of batteries in 2018. On full capacity, it will manufacture 150 GWh which will power an equivalent of 1.5 million vehicles with a 100 kWh battery capacity. Toyota, Fisker and BMW are likely to be the first automakers to adopt the battery in its electric vehicles by 2023. The electric vehicle charging infrastructure challenge has not yet been addressed, as there is a need for more charging stations globally. Currently, the density of charging stations is high in limited areas or regions where an EV sale is highest. EVs are likely to cost the same as conventional cars by 2020 which will be a huge threat to the conventional car industry. The EV industry will no longer require financial support from the government to regularise the price of an EV in the form of cash incentives. Logistics companies, such as DHL, DPD, TNT, etc., are switching to a 100% electric fleet by replacing current conventional vehicles with electric vehicles that are equally competent and a perfect fit for the business model. OEMs are shifting to 100% electric vans by 2020. 11 OEMs have announced EV milestones and targets. If all the announcements made so far were to come true, there will be about 25 million EVs sold by 2025 or 20% of all cars sold would be EVs. Energy and petrochemical companies have started investing heavily in establishing electric vehicle charging stations, as they are likely to be the biggest beneficiaries of the electric vehicle market. Shell acquired the largest infrastructure operator 'The New Motion' in the Netherlands which owns a network of 30,000 charging stations.
