According to Quantzig’s analytics experts, “While the focus of leading German original equipment manufacturers is to stabilize post-pandemic demand, our analysis reveals that post-pandemic sales in major markets will resume but auto manufacturers will be presented with newer challenges and opportunities depending on their manufacturing footprint and exposure to countries with more stringent regulations.”
As the coronavirus continues to spread across Europe, the German original equipment manufacturing sector is one of the worst-hit industries that are taking extreme measures in the form of plant closures to curb its impact. Though the impact of the high levels of scrutiny and digitization is quite evident in the auto manufacturing and R&D processes, sudden disruptions due to the pandemic outbreak have plagued the automotive supply chain. Today the global economy is in a state of mayhem and more so in Europe as German automotive companies suspend work and extend shutdown periods to help the government combat the spread of COVID-19.
