Automotive engineering is a branch of vehicle engineering that focuses on the application, design, and manufacturing of various automobiles. This field of engineering involves the direct application of mathematics in the design and production of vehicles. Engineering disciplines that may be practiced in this field include safety engineering, vehicle electronics, quality management, and fuel economy and emissions.

Automotive engineering services include designing and testing brake systems, engines, safety mechanisms, fuel technologies, and transmission. The major factors that boost the global automotive engineering services market are growing competition in the automobile industry among auto OEMs and increasing focus on enhancing key capabilities among auto OEMs.

Some of the other factors driving the growth of this market include rising sales of electric vehicles, increasing R&D investments in the automotive industry, and stringent government policies and regulations for internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. In addition, the advent of autonomous vehicles is offering considerable growth opportunities for automotive engineering service providers. However, intellectual property (IP) constraint and shifting business model hinders the growth of the automotive engineering services market. Besides, fragile economic conditions across the globe owing to the spread of COVID-19 are posing serious challenges for the overall market growth.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Automotive Engineering Services Market

The COVID-19 outbreak was declared a global pandemic as it spread in many countries. The pandemic has adversely hit many economies around the globe. The combat measures such as complete lockdown and quarantine to fight COVID-19 have put a strong adverse impact on many industries across the globe, including the automotive industry. The auto industry has seen the impact of the coronavirus crisis evolve from a supply shock to a global demand shock. The uncertainty regarding the possible length of lockdown and supply chain disruptions has made it even more difficult for industry players to anticipate the resurgence in the automotive industry. In addition to the impact on production activities, the ongoing pandemic has taken a toll on the consumer demand for automobiles, likely exacerbated by the lockdown imposed across major countries.

Speak to our Analysts to Understand the Impact of COVID-19 on Your Business:

As the coronavirus spread, many auto companies across the globe closed their doors as part of local shutdowns. Top global automotive manufacturing countries including China, the U.S., Germany, the U.K., and India almost stood still in manufacturing and sales during the first quarter of 2020. According to data published by Autocar India Magazine, global vehicle sales in March 2020 dipped to just above 5 million units and witnessed a significant drop of 39% compared to sales in March 2019. The U.S. and China registered a double-digit decline in automobile sales. However, Europe witnessed the worst decline in more than 38 years. Combined sales of Europe-27 registered a drop of 52% compared to the previous year. However, sales in electric cars, especially in some European countries, showed positive signs of growth. Electric vehicles, including hybrids, plug-ins, and full-electrics, recorded a positive growth of 15% and a total market share of 17.4% in European countries.

In the time of crisis, automotive companies along with the local government are trying to revive the glooming automotive industry by adopting several bailout strategies and packages. For instance, the Finance Ministry of India announced severance packages for automotive industries. Similarly, the Japanese government proposed a package of approximately USD 240 billion to mitigate the economic impact of COVID-19 and help industries, including the automotive industry.

The Japanese government also announced special perks and rebates for the companies willing to move their manufacturing unit out of China. The South Korean government assured automakers to speed up customs clearance, arrange freight transportation, and provide liquidity support. Although some governments are proactive, some are still planning and framing appropriate bailout packages for their automotive industry. Companies including General Motors, Volkswagen AG, and Toyota Motors urged the U.S. government to set-up facilities to provide loans and loan guarantees to large employers, medium-size manufacturers, and small businesses. Such strategy reforms and government aids are expected to help the automotive industry and associated industries re-track their growth path in the next 4 to 5 years.

Rising sales of electric vehicles are expected to drive the automotive engineering services market

The global electric vehicle (EV) industry is continuously expanding. The increasing vehicle range, better availability of charging infrastructure, and proactive participation of automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are driving the global electric vehicles market. Besides, the growing sensitivity of governments worldwide toward a cleaner environment is driving the demand for zero-emission vehicles. The U.S., Germany, and the U.K. are actively promoting the use of electric vehicles to reduce emissions. According to the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), more than 1.18 million electric vehicles are on the road in the U.S., and total sales for 2018 were up by almost 81% compared to 2017. Electric car deployment has been growing rapidly over the past ten years, with the global stock of electric passenger cars passing 5 million in 2018, an increase of 63% from the previous year.

The increasing adoption of electric vehicles is expected to change the outlook of the automotive engineering services market. Growing EV sales would accentuate the need to develop new battery technologies, better chassis & exterior designs, and advanced transmission systems compatible with such vehicles. EV manufacturers, such as Tesla, Nissan, and BAIC, are outsourcing their design and development of new technologies and solutions to tier 1 engineering companies. This trend is likely to grow with the rise in EV sales and drive the automotive engineering services market during the forecast period.
