Automotive OEM inhouse versus outsourced production of electric motors

With around 50% of European OEM motor production already completed in-house, and market share foreseen to grow to more than 60% by 2025 what is the outlook for component manufacturers and suppliers? Will there be more opportunities for strategic technical partnerships such as e.g. that between Audi and Schaeffler in Formula E or will manufacturers need to diversify their product and customer base?

Closing the value chain in electromobility

Batteries and motors contain valuable resources such as rare earth elements (neodymium, dysprosium), cobalt, lithium, and copper, which mostly have to be imported from countries outside the EU. Join the experts from Fraunhofer Society for an in-depth technical analysis and breakdown of recycling techniques for batteries and rare earth permanent magnets pioneered by Fraunhofer, their implications for sustainability and the supply chain. Join us in this interactive workshop.
