Published in August 2017, this 16-page report from AutoBeat Daily, Automotive Design & Production and the Advanced Mobility Project examines how the fast-changing auto industry is impacting suppliers.

Analysts say gaps between winner and loser suppliers will widen as competition increases, profit margins are squeezed and the regulatory environment remains uncertain. Connectivity and self-driving systems are defining the car itself in terms of design, function and content.

The report says trends in personal mobility options will redefine the automotive supply base, introduce all-new players and impact the way vehicles are designed and built.
