By Jacques Aschenbroich on Paris Innovation Review

With the emergence of new, often disruptive, forms of personal mobility, the automotive industry is facing a drastic change in its role and its relationship with consumers, end-users and society in general. New forms of partnerships are also emerging. Innovation and technology are crucial drivers for these changes, while automotive suppliers are its key actors, alongside OEMs, new industrial players and service providers.
L'industrie automobile est engagée dans une mutation de son rôle et de sa relation avec le consommateur, l'utilisateur final et la société en général. Elle contribue à l'émergence de nouvelles solutions de mobilité individuelle, parfois disruptives. Elle s'impose aussi comme l'interface de nouvelles logiques partenariales. L'innovation et la technologie sont le levier indispensable à ces mutations : les équipementiers automobiles en sont des acteurs-clés, aux côtés de leurs clients constructeurs, mais également de nouveaux acteurs industriels et de services.
