The automotive industry is a very internationally oriented sector. Automotive businesses are part of multinationals or at the very least have customers or suppliers in other countries. The following trends dominate this sector:

  1. Cost reduction
  2. Higher safety requirements, more efficient energy use and lower environmental impact
  3. A shift of focus to electronics and software (embedded systems)
  4. Increasing added value from suppliers.
