Automotive Sector Monitor

Automotive Industry climbing close to pre-recession level
Strong and profitable growth of the automotive sector post the economic crisis likely to continue during
2016, with annual sales reaching pre-recession levels in some regions.
The market for automotive sales in the U.S. is quite optimistic with over 17 million vehicles sold in 2015.
Europe, from its six-year sales slump, continued to grow at a weaker pace with a steady economic recovery
during the last 2 years, where the domestic consumption rate went up by 15%.
Russia automotive sector witnessed a plunge in sales during 2015. Fall in oil prices, low Ruble-Dollar
exchange rate and western sanctions over Ukraine had a catastrophic impact on the Russian automotive
industry. Passenger sales fell by 10.3% in 2014, and further shrank at an annual rate of 32%, during 2015.
The market in South America witnessed a 15% decline in sales. This could be accounted to the
dependence of the former on political and economic stability, which are highly volatile in the region.
However, automotive market is expected to offer decent opportunities in the light of low car ownership, lowcost production and growing middle class populations in Brazil and Argentina.
In spite of the ramping up of investments from OEMs in China, the overall market in the country slowed
down. This could be accounted to the decline in cost-advantage that China boasted about for long. Further,
spike in labour wages and recent crash of the production industry are expected to slow down the
automotive market during 2016.
Market performance in India has been inconsistent during 2015. However, on the brighter side, spike in
disposable income and low-production costs favoured the investments from automakers in the country, in
turn driving the market for automotive industry.

Major sectors Outlook

Automotive Security: With the market for connected vehicles to touch 300 million by 2018, the regulations
related to safety and automotive cyber security industry will grow substantially. Advancements like Intrusion
Prevention Systems (IPS) will further encourage initiatives with regards to developing sophisticated security
solutions in the light of growing autonomous vehicle market.
Automotive Technology: Technology has become the backbone for automotive industry growth. Higher
adoption of technologies such as ADAS, ABS etc. encouraged automakers to develop feature packed
vehicles, in accordance with the growing consumer preferences for the former. Night Vision Systems, Smart
Key, Smart glass and adaptive lighting systems are some of the technologies that are expected to
revolutionise the customer desired driving experience.
Electric Vehicles: Spike in automotive emissions, lower operating & maintenance costs and government
agency initiates are some of the major factors propelling the market for electric vehicles in the global
scenario. Further, with the potential adoption of electric vehicles, automakers are now taking the concept of
electric vehicles to a next level by targeting the high performance electric vehicle sector. Further, the market
for wireless charging for these EVs have a bright prospect over the coming 5 years, with countries like UK
spending $300 million on building wireless charging roads allows charging for these vehicles on the go.
Sensors/ Softwares: Electronic systems now contribute to over 85% of the features and innovations that
the automotive industry has witnessed over the recent past. These sophisticated systems pumped up the
demand for softwares and connectivity. Further, growth in advanced driver assistance systems and other
safety systems propelled the employment of more number of sensors in a vehicle. The number of sensors
per vehicle is poised to grow to over 200 by 2020. TPMS, Steering sensors and MEMS are some of the
sensor types that will witness an increased employment by automakers over the coming 5 years.
Materials: Vehicle lightening trends in the light of enhancing fuel efficiency drove the market for light weight
materials such as composites and aluminium in automotive industry. Automakers are now trying to employ
carbon fibre composites and aluminium extrusion for the chassis and body assemblies of the vehicle. Large
scale production is expected to bring down the cost for carbon fibre, in turn, acting as a major propellent for
the employment of this material in automotive construction.

Die Casting: In the light of EPA and CAFE regulations to cut down automotive emissions and enhance the
mpg fuel efficiency, automakers diverted their focus on reducing the overall weight of their produce. Along
with employing lighter body materials, they have also adopted non-ferrous metal die casting parts for
engine, transmission and body assemblies. Aluminium die castings in particular, found their extensive use in
the manufacture of automotive engine parts, transmission housing, structural components and body
