Asia-Pacific is Expected to Hold a Major Share in the Automotive Engineering Service Outsourcing Market

Asia-Pacific is likely to have a large share of the target market, attributed to the presence of significant automobile OEMs and the outsourcing of production and associated operations to countries such as India, South Korea, and China due to the availability of low-cost labor. As a result, automotive ESO providers are transferring their operations to this region.

India accounts for roughly 30% of all available manpower among low-cost countries. The country has a 15-26% cost advantage over European, Latin American, and North American countries. India has provided a highly competitive market for global OEMs catering to the needs of various segments worldwide. Kia and MG are two new OEMs in the Indian market.

Several firms focus on partnerships to develop sustainable mobility solutions and build the next generation of electric vehicles, autonomous driving solutions, and mobility service applications that can deliver value for consumers in the mobility industry. For instance,

  • In August 2022, L&T Technology Services, headquartered in India, bagged a 5-year infotainment deal from BMW Group to provide high-end engineering services for the company's suite of infotainment. The proximity to BMW Group's campus will enable LTTS' engineers to work on a variety of solutions and offer services in real-time.

Thus, the abovementioned factors are expected to positively impact the market’s growth.
