Despite existing and immediate pressures generated by the COVID-19 crisis, the automotive industry direction of travel towards increasingly electrified propulsion remains intact. Challenges imposed by air quality legislation and CO2 requirements remain, whilst investments from OEMs and suppliers well established before the crisis will look to bear fruit. A slew of new technology is forecast to become ubiquitous in the coming years as the next wave of likely more cautious EV adopters transition away from the internal combustion engine. They are forecast to embrace increasingly connected, autonomous and shared mobility means, underpinned by electric component technologies.
In this context and further out into the decade, a paradigm shift is set to be observed as the suppliers of the key battery, power electronics and electric motor components look to achieve scale and market share in rapidly evolving technology segments. Which battery material technologies will make for profitable long-term investment? How will demands for superior inverter performance be met and using which component technologies? Where will the value reside in the fully integrated eAxle powertrains of the future? Understanding these strategic questions will be critical to inform investment decisions and future direction.
