Automotive and supplier industry
In terms of sales, the automotive industry is the most important industrial sector in Germany. in 2021, sales amounted to around 411 billion euros, with vehicle and engine manufacturers accounting for the lion's share of 318 billion euros. The industry is also one of the largest employers (approx. 786,000 employees). If the many employees of the medium-sized suppliers and service providers are included, the figure is as high as 2.2 million.
The German automotive industry is considered a global benchmark in terms of quality and innovation, as well as research and development. However, structural change and the transformation of the industry have long been a reality and the industry has to respond to many things at once: Electrification, Big Data, autonomous driving, etc. The next few years will show which companies in the industry will manage these upheavals and adaptations and which will not. The same applies to other key industries such as chemicals & pharmaceuticals, the service sector or the construction industry.
Winning the digital transformation with technological competence!
New technologies such as the electric drive, vehicle networking or autonomous driving are leading to a profound change in the product range.

From automobile manufacturer to mobility services provider
The automotive industry is already almost completely automated. Nevertheless, the transformation pressure on manufacturers and suppliers is enormous. Autonomous driving, electric cars, connectivity and changing customer behavior are forcing manufacturers to evolve into mobility service providers. Business models outside of actual vehicle production will account for up to 40 percent of sales as early as 2025.
The Automotive industry sector is the association of companies in the Swiss automotive supply industry. With a wide range of services and a dense network at national and international level, it supports the competitiveness of the companies belonging to it. The importance of the Swiss automotive supply industry has grown steadily. It employs around 34,000 people spread across 574 companies.
Core processes are optimized, business models further developed
Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are currently pursuing a two-pronged strategy. On the one hand, they need to optimize their existing core processes and digitize them further. On the other hand, they are developing new business models for the mobility of the future - and this goes far beyond driving one's own car. Mobility is becoming a digital ecosystem in which previously largely separate modes of transport are merging to form an overall service.
Developing and producing together:
At the same time, technologies such as electric drive, autonomous driving and vehicle interaction require a massive change in the current product range. The car of the future will be a software-driven vehicle with hundreds of millions of lines of programming. Within the ecosystem, digital services, connectivity and data will be combined into a secure end-to-end approach. To achieve this, the automotive industry will have to build new competencies, forge new alliances and increase its investment in information and communication technologies.
