China's automotive sector is the largest in the world. It continues to grow rapidly and is evolving at lightning speed. To stay ahead, you need to anticipate what's around the corner as challenges in China can come from all directions.
Business in the fast lane
The burning question is: which of the global trends is likely to impact the China market and present growth opportunities for the automotive industry?
- Connected vehicles and autonomous driving: Is the automotive world prepared?
- Electric vehicles and mobility services: What is the future business model of automotive companies?
- Global regulatory enforcement (antitrust, environment, safety): How have increased non-compliance risks changed global investigations?
- Protection of technology and brands across the globe: How can you protect your intellectual property in a global market?
- Financial issues: How to finance and support the fast development of automotive companies?
- No longer the world's only factory: Is China still the right place to assemble and manufacture?
- Investments outside China: What are the biggest challenges if you do automotive business in the U.S. and Europe?
A car culture has become part of the landscape in China, but with tie ups between auto manufacturers on the one hand and technology providers and internet heavyweights on the other, the market is undergoing a rapid transformation. We strongly believe that traditional automotive companies seeking to expand and thrive in this dynamic market need to work out how these trends will affect their China business.
We invite you to join us to learn more about how to benefit from these market changes and how to navigate the complex legal and commercial challenges presented by the China market.
