Driving performance: The future of automotive M&A

We're seeing disruption everywhere. Traditional roles, the hundred-year relationship between the vehicle manufacturers and the supplier, is being disrupted. Internally, from the suppliers themselves, from new entrants—primarily from the technology industry—and the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) themselves as they try to develop new business models based on the notion of mobility and services, as opposed to just selling vehicles.

Have a listen to our podcast, in which an Automotive and M&A expert give their thoughts on the rapidly changing industry.

 

Navigating the changing automotive industry

The entrance of new competitors, particularly from the technology industry, brings an even broader set of disruptive capabilities. Just think about R&D and engineering, and designing software & electronics.

If you're a supplier or an OEM, you really have two challenges.

You need to adapt to the future. You need to figure out what it is, and you need to develop the capabilities and skillsets needed to win in this undefined environment. However, you also have to deal with reality of your business today.
