Welcome to the Megatrend of Automobile Industry

The Wheels of India embraced the challenges faced in the past few years and now it is at the cusp of rapid growth over the next decade. There is absolutely no brake on consumer mobility behaviour when it comes to the adoption of new technology innovations and trends in the Automobile Industry. Connectivity, Autonomous Driving, Shared Mobility, and Electrification (C.A.S.E) are the megatrends driving end-user preferences.

Therefore, the auto industry is not just a traditional business anymore and this transformation of heavy machinery is built with a goldmine of opportunities. Businesses are reviewing how they used to function and are evaluating ways to create new rules for success. This has gained the attraction of a number of industry players from various sectors in the mobility space.

Here’s a look at six diverse sectors that stands to gain an advantage from the disruption!

With a transition into the mobility ecosystem, a network of sectors can leverage their existing capabilities for numerous applications. The new auto ecosystem 2.0 requires taking different approaches, making bold moves, aligning strategic priorities, building new business models, taking collaborative efforts, forging new partnerships, investing in technologies and R&D, and so on. Both, the new entrants and big players with a broader vision in mind are actively exploring opportunities to capture the market’s tremendous economic potential.

The ecosystem will unleash new income streams to foster the growth of futuristic vehicles in India.

To give you a gist, the futuristic vehicles will require battery-related chemicals while increased use of sensors will require a distinct set of chemicals. The rising demand for C.A.S.E vehicles will require more safety, fuel efficiency, and increased scrutiny of environmental impact. Therefore, chemical companies need to be at the top of their game and respond to the changes quickly. On the other side, the domestic production of lithium batteries will reduce our dependency on imports and make electric vehicles cheaper, paving the way for India’s path to electrification. Further, auto tech companies will revolutionize vehicles with the growing number of software-driven technologies.

Various industry players must work hand-in-hand and position themselves differently to reap the benefits.

Therefore, auto ecosystem 2.0 will offer win-win situations for all the players involved and will lead to the New Era in the Automotive Industry. In order to capitalize on the long-term opportunity, investors can pile stocks of fundamentally sound companies from the auto ecosystem.
