Additional Information

Digital content, increasing automation, and new business models have disrupted the industry across the world. In addition, the unsustainable character of the current mobility concepts, the pace of technological change, the willingness of urban/rural residents to adapt to new ideas, and the inclination of governments to act are all factors towards improving the asset utilisation.

The Indian automotive industry has started to experience the effects of this global disruption. While revenue pools from conventional sources may continue to grow at their current pace, the real growth ahead lies in services.

From a Bosch India perspective, we see a need to transform with new mind-sets -operating together with businesses, governments, and consumers- to imagine a future landscape focusing on efficient mobility concepts, clean energy needs, decentralised governance, convergence on connectivity etc.

This will require new technologies, competencies, and partners, while still relying on traditional businesses on the journey towards creating a solutions & services mind-set. To create such overarching solutions (involving products, infrastructure services, software services, etc.), covering multiple roles (like supplier, integrator, infrastructure provider, producer etc.) and across business areas (2WP, CVO, PS, AA, AE, ED, CC and RBEI for connectivity) will necessitate cross GB collaboration and developing the ability to address the new market profile / consequent requirements.
