April 9, 2024

In the ever-evolving landscape of innovation in the automotive sector, seizing opportunities and staying ahead of the curve is not just a strategy but a necessity for sustainable growth. As the challenges of 2024 approach, such as a lower-than-predicted demand for electric vehicles, pricings not aligned with the market, the race for technology and the race for range/weight efficiency… it becomes imperative to align one’s strategy with the core priorities driving the industry forward.

At Ayming, we understand the intricate challenges faced by the automotive sector in navigating the realms of innovation and research and development.


Key industry focus areas

Our last International Innovation Barometer brings to light the following key focuses that industry leaders are prioritizing:

  • Researching and understanding customers’ needs (36%): The pulse of the automotive sector lies in understanding and meeting the diverse needs of customers.
  • Implementing new tools and technology (32%): The integration of cutting-edge tools and technologies is a key driver of competitiveness. This is particularly true in terms of battery autonomy and weight optimization.
  • Optimizing operations and streamlining processes (29%): Efficient and streamlined processes are crucial for sustainable and profitable operations.
  • Leveraging Data Analytics, ML, and AI (29%): The power of data-driven decision-making and the integration of advanced technologies are paramount. Innovation in the automotive sector, in addition to performance, must also take into account new safety systems and interaction with the data collected by the new technologies implemented.

Industry priorities shaping the future

These insights strongly resonate with the overarching industry priorities that are set to shape the future of automotive innovation:

  • Driving experience: A heightened focus on user-centered design and research to deliver not only better but also safer cars. For the moment, the new technologies being implemented are heavy and represent a risk in the event of collisions or accidents. The industry is also integrating more and more computer vision in order to enhance safety measures.
  • Cutting-edge research: Exploration into aerodynamics, ergonomics, and the latest innovations in electric and autonomous vehicles. To increase the performance of new developments, we need to think about making them lighter and even rethinking their design to increase their autonomy.
  • IoT-based services: Embracing the era of “connected vehicles” by incorporating predictive maintenance and other IoT-driven features. But it doesn’t stop there. The use and management of data also represents a cost in terms of processing capacity for the integrated computer programmes. These too must adapt and keep pace with developments in real time if they are not to become obsolete and remain competitive in the automotive industry.
  • Industry 4.0: Revolutionizing low value-added tasks. Thanks to production through smart factories that integrate AI, 3D printing, AR, and VR, leading to improved efficiency and quality. Or automatic collection and sorting by automotive machines in the agricultural sector. Robotisation is increasing and factories are being digitised. Every second saved becomes a competitive factor.
  • Sustainable manufacturing: A steadfast commitment to sustainable and resource-efficient manufacturing processes. The challenge lies in reconciling ecological aspirations, profitability and the financing of the transition.
