Vehicle Types: Increasing contract manufacturing activities in passenger vehicles

Passenger cars, constituting a significant segment in the automotive industry, are primarily manufactured for the transportation of passengers and their personal belongings. Given the intense competition and rapid technological evolution within the automotive sector, automotive OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) increasingly rely on contract manufacturers for scalable and efficient production solutions. Commercial vehicles are designed for the transportation of goods and services rather than passengers. This broad category includes light commercial vehicles (LCVs), heavy trucks, buses, coaches, and vans. Contract manufacturers enable OEMs to quickly respond to market demands and regulatory changes without the need for extensive capital investments in production facilities.

Services: Rising significance of contract manufacturing in automotive electronics

The design & development service in automotive contract manufacturing involves the creation and engineering of vehicle designs, focusing on aspects such as aesthetics, functionality, and safety.
