The supply chain is in a phase of profound epochal transformation, and in view of the impending deadlines for the abandonment of traditional combustion engines, it needs to direct investments toward ESG transition, smart mobility, and growth of scale for all its member companies through a profound overhaul of the traditional business model, as well as forms of aggregation to achieve critical mass.
The semiconductor and microchip crisis, the still-present global pandemic and ongoing energy crisis, and the severe political instability generated by the war all confirm a difficult period of product scarcity, higher new and used AUTO AND MOBILITY SUPPLY CHAIN prices, and a revolution in the rationale by which performance is being optimized. Nearly nine out of ten companies say they see the ongoing technology transition in the industry as an opportunity. Significant investment in R&D is needed, however, and there is still a strong link between firm size and innovation projects. Clearly, this transformation has an extremely important impact on employment in the components and systems sector and requires new investment in R&D.
