Key Vendor Analysis
The automotive mold market is highly competitive and fragmented. The demand for automotive mold remains directly proportional to the production in the automotive industry. Thus, an increase or a decline in the sale of automotive has a significant impact on the auto mold market. The market is primarily concentrated in APAC, followed by Europe and North America. China has witnessed an influx of several vendors in the market due to the availability of economical labor and the presence of the automotive market. The automotive mold market is highly price-sensitive with several vendors competing to establish business relations with automotive OEMs. However, devising the price strategy of the product must consider the target margin percentage and the production cost. Thus, a blend of technical complexity, customer relationships, and market competition comes into the picture for vendors competing in such a highly competitive environment. Technological upgrades and enhanced production methodology remain highly crucial in the market. Vendors are continually working on upgrading their existing production technology.
