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?
