Europe comprises several major manufacturing industries—such as aerospace, machinery & equipment, automotive, shipbuilding, and military vehicle manufacturing. The automotive industry is considered to be a crucial industry as it significantly contributes to the GDP of EU countries. The EU is the leading producer of motor vehicles, and several premium automotive manufacturers are based in the region. The vehicle manufacturing industry produces ~19.2 million cars, vans, buses, and trucks, collectively, every year. Moreover, ~300 vehicle assembly and manufacturing facilities are located in around 26 countries across the region.
According to the “ACEA”, with the presence of companies such as BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, and Aston Martin, Europe accounts for 21% of cars manufactured across the world. Germany is the largest contributor to the automotive market in the region, accounting for ~30% share. The growing inclination toward the integration of electronics into the automotive sector, coupled with the emergence of autonomous driving, advanced driver assist systems, in-vehicle infotainment, and vehicle telematics, has resulted in elevated demands for semiconductor-based ICs.
