Vehicle Manufacturing

Global motor vehicle production declined by almost 23 percent year-on-year during the third quarter of 2020, indicating a difficult business environment for vehicle manufacturers and parts suppliers. Vehicle manufacturing is currently undergoing structural changes, offering challenges and opportunities alike. Change is mainly driven by a shift towards electrification and automation, and vehicle manufacturers and parts suppliers are faced with supply chain challenges, in parts caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Bosch is currently the world’s largest automotive supplier. The company operates about 440 subsidiaries and regional companies across some 60 countries.
