Vehicle Manufacturing

Global motor vehicle production declined in 2019 and 2020 and has been slow to rebound, indicating a challenging business environment for vehicle manufacturers and parts suppliers.

Vehicle manufacturing is also undergoing structural changes, offering challenges and opportunities alike. A shift towards electrification and automation mainly drives this change, and vehicle manufacturers and parts suppliers face supply chain challenges partly caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The automotive semiconductor shortage recorded in 2021 and 2022 further disrupted the supply chain, lowering vehicle inventory and forcing some manufacturers to halt production.

Bosch is currently the world’s largest automotive supplier. The company operates over 460 subsidiaries and regional companies across some 60 countries.
