Automotive revolution

Digitalization and other megatrends are revolutionizing industries and are leading to new business models. The Automotive sector is facing such disruptive trends: diverse mobility, autonomous driving, electrification and enhanced connectivity.

This is also driving consumer behavior around ownership and usage, with increasing demand for shared mobility or connectivity services. Increasingly, consumers will engage in the new mobile lifestyle staying connected and having access to a set of services to facilitate their mobility such as on-demand traffic information or infotainment content.

With urbanization, drivers are turning to services like navigation, quicker ways to find a parking space to streamline their travel, locating the next available e-charger, using complementary public transport offerings for the "last mile". Cities are changing, leaving more space to pedestrian zones and traffic thereby enticing passengers to use various transport modes in the same day to optimize their trip. This will discourage private car ownership and encourage sharing models. In this new economy secure authentication, biometrics and car personalization with user preferences will be key success factors. Electric cars are becoming more viable and with restrictions on emissions and an increasing number of charging stations, e-mobility will increase. With the strong demand for connectivity and the ability to improve services to passengers, autonomous driving is also a key trend in the new Mobility Services market.
