Few industries and sectors were spared as COVID-19 wreaked havoc on economies around the world. While the technology sector is booming and setting new records, the travel industry was down by 60% to 80%. If traditional industries are to survive, they must turn away from their earlier business models. The auto industry was one of the first to respond to the pandemic, turning idle supply chains into critical supplies.
GM and Ford, for example, manufactured hundreds of thousands of ventilators, while Nissan, Toyota, Honda, and Fiat Chrysler manufactured millions of face masks. Car companies have taken steps to protect the people they serve, but can they, and future newcomers, protect their businesses from the present and future consequences of a post-COVID-19 world? In this blog post, we'll look at some of the biggest challenges affecting the automotive industry and how to overcome them to make a pandemic-proof industry.
