Cemtrex Inc. is bullish on the automotive electronics industry and potential opportunities for the company, as automobiles add more electronic components and as they become more connected. A recent report by McKinsey indicates the dramatic increase in vehicle connectivity will increase the value of the global market for connectivity components and services to €170 billion by 2020 from just €30 billion today.
As the automotive industry also moves toward self-driving technology and connected intelligent cars, it is expected to generate new opportunities for Cemtrex. Companies like Hyundai and Volkswagen are working on connected car technologies and related services such as smartphone and smart home connected services, intelligent remote support, fully autonomous driving, smart traffic functionality and mobility hubs as part of their effort to establish a presence in the market. Technology companies such as Alphabet and Apple and automobile manufacturers including Ford, Volvo, Tesla, and BMW are investing in autonomous driving technology which requires the integration of many electronic components and assemblies.
According to a recent report from PwC, autonomous vehicles could come to full fruition in ten years which will enable new levels of connectivity and services both inside and outside the car. They estimate connected car revenues to increase from approximately $50 billion to $155.9 billion by 2022.
Cemtrex Chairman and CEO Saagar Govil sad, "Samsung Electronics recently acquired Harman International Industries, one of our largest customers, in an effort to accelerate its growth in the automotive connected space, which we believe is further validation of our strategy in this sector. We are extremely optimistic about the opportunities in front of us and our ability to leverage them with our growing organization."
