AutoTechInsight Webinar: A global look at the thermal component business
With the growth of electrified vehicles and the pending demise of the internal combustion engine, how will the component supply chain be affected? In particular, how will OEMs shift their focus when it comes to thermal technology that is vital to cool batteries?
While hybrid vehicles are increasingly becoming a standard feature in most OEMs’ model lineup, the further evolution to plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles will bring increasing complexity to the propulsion system, and therefore the total thermal management system including not only the battery but also e-motors, power electronics and HVAC, which are all interconnected.
Join IHS Markit’s Supply Chain & Technology analysts for this AutoTechInsight webinar as they share insights from thermal technology forecasts, outline key growth areas, and give a special review of Japanese vehicle manufacturers as the market leads innovation of thermal technology.
