Industries we serve

Automotive

Since the mid-20th century, the automotive industry has driven notions of status, freedom, the way we work and play, and even the built the environment and infrastructure of many countries. Automotive companies were some of the most iconic corporations of the twentieth century. But the story of mobility is changing at top speed. Disruptive new technologies and business approaches abound. Untapped consumers in emerging markets and rising affluence in developed markets, once represented a certain future for the automotive giants.

 

Now consumer behaviour leapfrogs from vehicle ownership to vehicle access, new technology is replacing the joy of driving with the ease of being driven, and the regulatory environment becomes more complex than ever. We help major players in the sector ensure they stay influential and fit for the future, identifying the big bets they need to move forward, and the strategies to adopt to remain relevant. And we support innovative new entrants as they re-define what it means to be on the move.
