OEM Update Webinar on “The Future of Automobile Manufacturing”
February 18, 2021 10:34 am
The global automotive industry is undergoing significant disruptions across the value chain. Commercial Vehicles are expected to dominate by 2030 and passenger vehicles are projected to make just 5.08 percent of the market by 2030. With the increasing demand and adoption of e-mobility across the world, we foresee the future of Indian mobility to be clean and sustainable. The world economic forum highlighted that Indian automobile industry is one the fastest growing markets globally; still it makes only 0.5 percent in the global EV market.
Mobility when shared, connected, reliable, and electric would be clean; and Indian government is spurring actions to drive the adoption of clean transition, and has set a target of electrifying almost 30 percent of the vehicles by 2030, powered through electrifying passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. But, India still lags lower after negligence in adoption of E-mobility will remain to be a concern.
On this note, OEM Update conducted an interactive session on “The Future of Automobile Manufacturing”, on 25th January 2021. In this 90 minutes session, industry experts talked about reshaping the rejuvenating trends in the automobile industry aligned with the transition towards E-mobility.
