Demand for Customization Sparks Outsourcing Trend in Interior Systems and Modules Market

Interior systems are emerging as the focal point of differentiation for automakers in a highly competitive marketplace. Customers are demanding increasing customization of interior systems and in turn are compelling automakers to constantly upgrade and add sophisticated features with emphasis on sharp styling, ergonomic design, convenience, and recyclable materials. Given the increasing cost pressures and facility investments, a favorable strategy would be to outsource the manufacture of interior systems and modules to Tier 1 suppliers for ensuring faster development and assembly time. The outsourcing trend has caught up in seating systems, followed by overhead and cockpit modules segments. In the future, it is expected to become vital to meet automakers’ cost, quality and delivery requirements and for managing the efforts of their upstream suppliers.

This Frost & Sullivan research service analyzes the North American interior systems and modules market segmenting it into cockpit modules, carpet, acoustic and cargo management systems, overhead modules, and seating systems. READ MORE >
