COVID-19 has impacted industries massively and has affected economies across the globe. The Automotive industry in specific has been crippled significantly by this black swan event. While production and supply chain issues are being resolved in erstwhile epicenters of the epidemic, vaporization of demand seems to be giving sleepless nights to top executives.

With the changing consumption patterns and the shift in R&D priorities, the Automotive industry is at an inflection point, where the current pandemic situation is accelerating digital transformation initiatives across the auto value chain.
