Automotive & Industrials
Technology, automation, and globalization have forced industrial manufacturers to evolve at a rapid pace. This is especially clear in the automotive sector, where shifting mobility habits are driving innovation and industry players must contend with here-to-stay trends, such as shared and autonomous vehicles. To thrive in this shifting landscape, companies must invest further in M&A, big data, information technology systems, and other strategic initiatives in order to stay competitive on the world stage. These new industry disruptors, in addition to the ever-present automotive industry challenges related to margin erosion, uncertain production volumes, new product launches, and trade and tariffs, among others, are contributing to instability and distress in the automotive landscape.

"The (chip shortage) situation isn’t as devastating as last spring’s car-plant shutdown that spanned the globe. (Constraints that may cause shutdowns in 2021) will be more sporadic, a plant here or a plant there, for a shorter period of time, as opposed to a full industry shutdown--this will not have anywhere near the impact of the production losses we saw last year." - Sig Huber (Automotive Logistics)View More News
