Due to the rapidly increasing dynamics in the public debate since the beginning of 2017 and the positive perception of electromobility, the present publication examines in more detail the preparation of automotive suppliers for the impending electrification.

In our new study we look at current developments in e-mobility and its effect on the added value of SMEs. Based on our survey of suppliers, financers and experts from the automotive industry, we examine the expected effects on corporate planning and the status of the measures that have so far been initiated. Based on this, we identify further needs for action and recommendations.

>> If you wish to implement strategic change in a targeted manner, you already have to initiate preparatory adjustments now.<<

Struktur Management Partner asked around. Against the background of the unpredictable development, Struktur Management Partner asked automotive suppliers, financiers and other automotive experts between July and September 2017 what measures had already been taken to prepare for the expected upheaval. The companies surveyed are very different in terms of sales and industry focus and are widely distributed across the automotive supplier industry.

How well are automotive suppliers prepared for the technological change?
