The automotive industry comprises a wide range of companies and organizations involved in the design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and selling of motor vehicles. It is one of the world's largest industries by revenue.

As autonomous driving becomes a reality, manufacturers are shifting focus to connected vehicles and digital services. To remain competitive, they need to digitally reinvent and improve the key areas.


The modern automobile is a complex technical system employing subsystems with specific design functions. Some of these consist of thousands of component parts that have evolved from breakthroughs in existing technology or from new technologies such as electronic computers, high-strength plastics, and new alloys of steel and nonferrous metals. Some subsystems have come about as a result of factors such as air pollution, safety legislation, and competition between manufacturers throughout the world.


Passenger cars have emerged as the primary means of family transportation, with an estimated 1.4 billion in operation worldwide. About one-quarter of these are in the United States, where more than three trillion miles (almost five trillion kilometers) are traveled each year. In recent years, Americans have been offered hundreds of different models, about half of them from foreign manufacturers. To capitalize on their proprietary technological advances, manufacturers introduce new designs ever more frequently. With some 70 million new units built each year worldwide, manufacturers have been able to split the market into many very small segments that nonetheless remain profitable.


Pillars of the Automotive Industry:

The automotive industry can be divided into three business sectors that form the pillars of the industry. The three business sectors are:

Car and Automobile Manufacturers:

Companies in this industry manufacture chassis for automobiles and light-duty motor vehicles and assemble final automobiles and light-duty motor vehicles. These vehicles include passenger cars, pickup trucks, sports utility vehicles (SUVs), crossover utility vehicles, people movers, and vans. Many parts are acquired from many different suppliers and finally assembled by the Auto Manufacturer. They use these parts to build vehicles and the assembled vehicle is sold under their brand names. Auto manufacturers produce and sell light-duty vehicles, such as passenger cars, vans, and pickup trucks. They also sell heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks, transit buses, school buses, and military vehicles.


Industry Products:

  • Cars
  • Pickup trucks and SUVs
  • Vans
  • Trucks
  • Transit Buses
  • School Buses
  • Military Vehicles

Industry Activities:

  • Manufacturing passenger cars, light trucks, sport utility vehicles and vans
  • Manufacturing chassis for passenger cars, light and utility trucks, and vans
  • Manufacturing electric automobiles for highway use
  • Hearses assembling on chassis of own

New technical developments are recognized to be the key to successful competition. Research and development engineers and scientists have been employed by all automobile manufacturers and suppliers to improve the body, chassis, engine, drivetrain, control systems, safety systems, and emission-control systems.

The automotive industry is undergoing rapid transformation, as blue-chip brands and new players respond to the changing expectations of drivers and society. The digital revolution has opened the door to more connected, agile and efficient production tools, giving way to Industry 4.0. Manufacturers are competing to develop the next big breakthroughs in ADAS, autonomous vehicles and connected cars.

Now drivers are using vehicles in new ways, from evolving infotainment systems to ride-sharing apps. And they’re increasingly eco-conscious, looking for electric and hybrid vehicles. Through all these innovations, new risks emerge, requiring state-of-the-art cyber security and safety solutions.

>The race is on to build tomorrow’s mobility, whilst ensuring the uncompromised safety of products, people and our planet. Industry leaders therefore need strong partners to help them make the most of today’s technological opportunities.
