The proliferation of automotive technology and intensifying
competition between well-established automotive supply companies and emerging market
players remain at the top of the agenda for the C-suite. Notably, the emerging market
players are radically disrupting a wide range of industry segments, due to
which leading automotive supply firms face challenges in terms of market
differentiation, expansion, go-to-market opportunity, and product development.
Businesses in the automotive supply industry must devise
effective strategies and keep track of decision criteria to adapt and make
organization-wide changes. Ideally, the strategies must be based on three aspects,
i.e., product development, technical expertise, and innovative go-to-market methodologies.
in the increasingly competitive automotive supply industry
To better understand these aspects, we interviewed representatives
of leading automotive supply companies. Based on these insights, we have
curated a list that explains the strategies to succeed and win globally in the
increasingly competitive automotive supply industry.
Retaining leadership in new product development
A majority of automotive companies with a global reach have innovation and product development as the topmost priority on their business agenda. Global leaders within the automotive supply industry set aside many resources and invest in R&D when compared to the other players for whom product development is not a priority. Moreover, product research and innovation are considered crucial in addressing end-customer needs and retaining market position in most cases.
Maintaining a technology advantage by bridging the gap between automotive supply and demand
The use of innovative technology can aid businesses to gain an edge in the automotive market. Keeping abreast of technology must be a strategic priority for executives looking to capture a fair share of the market. However, addressing these issues will require businesses to invest in research and analysis. The need to maintain a technology advantage comes not only from well-established market players but also from stricter compliances and industry standards in both developed and emerging markets.
The rising industry standards for fuel efficiency, stricter recall
policies, and enforced repair and replacement guarantees by OEMs will require
automotive supply companies to improve product technology and quality to stay
in the market.
