DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5wf4mm/supplying_hyundai) has announced the addition of the "Supplying Hyundai Kia" report to their offering.
Understanding the purchasing and production operations of global OEMs is increasingly important for suppliers, as they face increasing platform consolidation and intensifying competition for new business.
Hyundai and Kia are still heavily reliant on a series of core suppliers operating within the Hyundai Motor Group (HMG). As the OEMs have extended their respective global manufacturing footprints, they have displayed an overwhelming preference for using these suppliers as they too have expanded their respective manufacturing networks. Where these internal suppliers cannot deliver the required parts, the OEMs have further demonstrated a preference for working with other South Korean companies, to the detriment of other national and international suppliers.
Hyundai has announced that it is expecting profit and related sales to stagnate over 2014 and 15. To maintain the market momentum seen over the past five years, the OEMs have noted that it will be critical to improve vehicle quality and increase fuel economy by developing technologies within these areas, together with wholly individual technologies which increase overall desirability. Suppliers within HMG have some expertise with technology development, but despite recent investment across the global R&D network, Hyundai and Kia do not have the capacity to deliver each and every ground-breaking function and feature.
Supplying Hyundai Kia 2015 reviews all areas of activity across the two OEMs, including best-selling models, platform usage, related production strategies, quality, supply chain, and areas of technology development. Using this information, it should be possible to understand in which areas Hyundai and Kia will be looking to apply new and innovative technologies and the areas where suppliers can plan to carry out future technology investigations which could prove of interest to the OEM.
