SANTA CLARA, Calif. – April 15, 2020 – The COVID-19 pandemic and the expected global economic recession to follow have many governments and markets witnessing a state of directionless uncertainty. Amid this chaos prompted by the widespread effects of the coronavirus, the global automotive industry will also confront a challenging year in new light vehicle sales, which are projected to register a  24% YoY decline in growth during 2020, according to Frost & Sullivan. To help players survive the present and thrive in the future, our thought leaders have curated a comprehensive scenario-based analysis of the current challenges faced across segments in the automotive industry and have selected products and sub-domains that will expand.

Frost & Sullivan invites you to join industry experts Sarwant Singh, Franck Leveque, Julia Saini, Vivek Vaidya, Benny Daniel and Kaushik M for the Growth Opportunity briefing, “Identify Growth Opportunities Across Automotive Verticals for Industry Recovery,” on April 21 at 11 a.m. EST.
