Solving tomorrow’s challenges today is no easy task!

In the next ten years, mobility will change fundamentally. There are more uncertainties in automotive markets than ever before. What road is powertrain electrification taking – and how fast is it progressing?

The challenges facing suppliers and OEMs are huge. They need to strike the right balance between customer expectations, technical possibilities and legal regulations, act with foresight, and send new impulses to the market.

CTI SYMPOSIUM Berlin looks to the future
The programme of CTI SYMPOSIUM Germany will reflect these general changes. Along with the latest technical innovations, strategic considerations will also play an important role in the presentations. Forecasts, compiled with the aid of statistics and market analysis, are indispensable planning tools. Using modular, scalable concepts, stakeholders can respond flexibly to market demands – and absorb the considerable costs of electrification.

Market analyses create transparency and identify trends
