Automotive Supplier Profit Analysis: Margin Compression And Technology Investment


Automotive tier 1 suppliers are facing unprecedented industry transformation in electrification along with economic uncertainty. Download this report on the top 20 global suppliers for a deep analysis of their historic margins, as well as solutions for how suppliers could cope with growing pressures and changes in technology across the supply chain

Following a decade in which the top 20 automotive tier 1 suppliers enjoyed relatively stable profits, many suppliers are entering the new year struggling with declining vehicle sales and manufacturing volume. At the same time, tightening vehicle emissions regulations and wider automotive industry shifts in technology, most notably to electrified powertrains and electric vehicles, require automotive suppliers to make huge investments and capital outlays in new systems. The impacts are felt across the value chain.

Automotive suppliers will increasingly have to find savings, including in manufacturing and systems architecture, to stay competitive, protect margins and increase spending for research and development in CASE (connected, autonomous, shared, electrified) technology – even with returns on investment for these companies far from certain. With this in mind, the 2020s are set to be a challenging decade, but also one filled with new opportunities.
