Ti Future Mobility: Electric Vehicle Supply Chain Architecture

 
Automotive supply chains will undergo a radical transformation over the next decade as the internal combustion engine is phased out in favour of alternative propulsion systems. Although it is not yet completely certain which type of technology will win the race to replace petrol or diesel engines, it is clear that electric vehicles will play an important, even defining, role in the industry’s future.
 
The future of automotive supply chains is of importance to both logistics service providers to the automotive sector and, at the macro level, whole economies. Any change in the structure of the automotive supply chain has the power to affect the nature of world trade and the dynamics of numerous national economies.
 

Ti’s Electric Vehicle Supply Chain Architecture report analyses the source of the materials used in this new supply chain; where value is added in the production process; where batteries are manufactured and assembled; and finally, how existing supply chains will be transformed.

 

This report contains

  • Analysis of the source of materials used in automotive supply chains and where value is added in the production process
  • Information on where batteries are manufactured and assembled
  • Insight into how existing supply chains will be transformed
  • The trends and developments shaping the management of the battery supply chain
