The contribution of the ESP sector in the globally transformed automotive industry
In 2030, the market for automotive engineering service providers (ESP) will be around 29 billion euros. This is the result of our latest comprehensive analysis of the ESP sector in cooperation with the VDA.

The “New Tech” strategy aims at technological leadership in innovative areas, and the “Complete Vehicle” strategy, finally, aims at a very broad service portfolio and global presence.
