Markets and consumers: the bigger picture 

The rising economic power of the emerging markets remains the overriding force for automotive growth over the next decade. As the industry becomes more global, automakers are using flexible, modular platforms, to adapt to changing customer preferences and to free up resources to invest in cleaner, fuel-efficient, powertrain technology. Pure battery electric mobility is suffering a sharp decline, as automakers turn their attention to improving ICE efficiency.
