Kedves Profizmusra Vágyók!

Ebben a hónapban néhány iparág jelenét és jövőjét tekintjük át. Most az autóiparról hoztam egy érdekes összefoglalót. Magyarországon is sokan dolgoznak az autóiparban vagy autóipari beszállítóknál. Érdekel, mit írnak erről a nagyvilág szakértői? Olvasd el és tanuld meg a szavakat!

Over the past 50 years automobiles have become our freedom machines: a means of transport and personal expression. Automobile sales show a 3% annual growth but in Europe, Japan and North America this growth has been quite flat over the last 20 years. The real growth has come from the emerging markets, mainly China, where autosales have tripled.

China is one of the biggest factors that is shaping the autoindustry. The potential has attracted many players, which will lead to shrinking margins. But China’s emergence as a dominant market will have other implications as Chinese taste will influence the design. This burgeoning domestic auto industry will soon compete alongside global makes. Their export is not yet significant but their growth is changing the equation.

Government regulations have been driving automotive development for decades. Initially they focused on safety like seatbelts or airbags, now there is more emphasis on emission since cars have strained the infrastructure and the environment. In many cities there are low emission zones or no drive days and in China people who buy state approved electric vehicles can get a licence more easily. Hopefully regulatory pressure, technological advances and customer preferences will end the dominance of the internal combustion engine.

Digital disruption is the third factor. The cars of the future will be connected, they will communicate with other vehicles and an intelligent roadway infrastructure.Cars will be able to receive and transmit information, which will improve safety and efficiency. Cars will be digitally more enabled and will have the ability to analyze real time road data. Disruptive technology will give companies a chance to leapfrog existing leaders.

Another issue that will probably affect the car industry is car sharing. Is it necessary to own a car at all? People can use a car when it is needed. It doesn’t necessarily mean  fewer car sales.

Autonomous vehicles will pose another challenge. 90% of all accidents are caused by human errors and these cars are programmed not to crash. As collisions will stop happening there will be no need for traffic police and automobile insurance will be affected. Cars will probably last longer. However, the transition period, when autonomous and non aotonomous cars are on the road will be a challenge. And probably many will miss the driving experience.
