According to IBM’s new Automotive 2025 Global Study, the automotive sector is positioned for disruptive changes over the next 10 years. The “Automotive 2025: Industry Without Borders” study covers customer expectations, growth strategies, mobility requirements, ecosystem, and other topics shaping the direction of the industry.
As reported in a MarketWatch article covering the study findings, the automotive industry will see greater personalized driving experiences and industry co-creation with consumers by 2025. Eighty-seven percent polled said partially automated driving (i.e., self-parking or lane change assist technologies, etc.) would become commonplace over the next decade. However, only 8% of study participants indicated fully autonomous vehicles would be widespread by 2025.
“While the automotive industry has seen a resurgence in recent years, a new industry identity is emerging—one that is more open, inclusive, and without borders,” says Alexander Scheidt, Global Automotive Industry Leader, IBM Global Business Services. “By 2025, the industry will not only recreate our highly personalized and digitized lives inside our cars, but also give consumers a bigger role in defining that experience, whether as a driver or passenger.”
With the automotive industry poised to embrace rapid change over the next decade, it will become increasingly important for businesses to drive automotive efficiency and organization.
