Automotive, Industrial IoT, and Logistics

Production figures in the automotive market have been declining for years. Between 2018 and 2019, they fell by 6.8% in the EU. According to forecasts, the number of passenger cars in Europe will not increase any further at least until 2030, and by 2035 it will have actually fallen by 8% compared to 2018. In China, there will probably be 11 million more cars on the roads in 2030 than in 2018.

Alternative drive systems are growing significantly in all countries of the EU. In 2019, pure e-battery cars, hybrid cars, and LPG passenger cars will have an increase of 27.5 % compared to the previous year. In Germany, numerous large cities have planned extensive fleets of electric buses. Compared to 2019, four times as many charging stations will be required in terms of infrastructure by 2025.

By 2030, over half of all new purchases will have integrated 5G communication technology. The manufacturers of connected and mobility services will then have a larger market share. Semi-autonomous driving would be possible everywhere by 2050, but even then it will mainly take place on highways. According to current estimates, only around 17.8 % of drivers would drive semi-autonomously in the city.
