AutoTechInsight Webinar: Global Automotive R&D spending: What will 2021 look like for the industry? 

2020 showed a sharp decline in global R&D spending by automotive companies. In recent day’s outlook on R&D spend has improved and our recent data depict a positive trend. Although automotive R&D spend is not recovered fully and has yet to go back to where it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the forecast suggests a positive comeback later in this year.

In this webinar, our research director Dr. Tawhid Khan will provide the 2021/22 outlook of the global R&D spend and areas where spending will occur. He will present the predictive operational and capital expenditure within the spending forecast for this financial year.
