Global Automotive Contract Manufacturing Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Services (Design & Development, Vehicle Assembly, Automotive Electronics, and Component Manufacturing) By Vehicle Type (Two Wheelers, Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicle, and Construction and Agricultural Vehicle) Forecast 2022-2028
The global market for automotive contract manufacturing is projected to have a considerable CAGR of around 7.2% during the forecast period. In the automotive sector, contract manufacturing is highly prevalent owing to the ease of manufacturing the final product and increased productivity. The major factors that are augmenting the growth of the market include an increase in automotive sales across the globe, increasing the number of components per vehicle, and the availability of a skilled workforce and technology at a lower cost in emerging economies. For instance, in 2019, in India, around 3.81 million units combined sold in the passenger and commercial vehicles categories. The two-wheelers segment dominates the market in terms of volume owing to a growing middle class and a young population. Additionally, countries such as India, China, Brazil, Mexico are providing a significant infrastructure and cheaper workforce to OEMs for contract manufacturing which is motivating the shifting of component production from their production unit to a contractor.
However, outsourcing risks that arise due to integrating issues between OEMs and contract manufacturers, and the risk of non-compliance with regulations are some of the constraints that challenge the growth of the market. Moreover, the technological advancements in hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles, and self-driving vehicles are estimated to offer lucrative opportunities the US was estimated as the world’s third-largest market in producing electric cars accounting for 326,000. In addition to this, According to NITI Aayog, In India, 70% of all commercial cars, 30% of private cars, 40% of busses, and 80% of two and three-wheeler vehicles are estimated to be electric by 2030.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Automotive Contract Manufacturing Market
The global automotive contract manufacturing market is hardly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic since December 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic in the major economies has disrupted the manufacturing and supply of automotive manufacturing across the globe, which resulted in a decrease in market share. This was mainly due to the lockdowns imposed by the governments of several countries due to which many industries were not being operated. Moreover, lack of workforce availability, logistics also hindered the growth of the market. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, in 2020, due to COVID-19, the global automotive production was declined by 16%, which already saw a decline of 5% in world auto production (down to less than 92.2 million cars, trucks, and buses) in 2019.
The global automotive contract manufacturing market is segmented based on service, and vehicle type. On the basis of service, the market is further segmented into design and development, vehicle assembly, automotive electronics, and component manufacturing. Among these, the automotive electronics segment is expected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period. Automotive Electronics includes everything right from the headlight and LED brake light to the seat control inside the car. The demand for automotive electronics owing to the increasing integration and implementation of advanced safety systems in cars and other automotive vehicles will be expected to drive the market growth. Besides, the increasing adoption of electric vehicles is also expected to propel the demands for automotive electronics during the forecast period. Further, based on the vehicle type, the market is segmented into two-wheelers, passenger cars, commercial vehicles, construction, and agricultural vehicle.
