Start-ups Disrupting the Global Automotive and Mobility Industry, 2016–2017

The study identifies and analyzes various start-ups in the automotive space across various verticals - ranging from connected car technologies to aftermarket solution providers. Start-ups are identified based on their solutions and their globe reach. Frost & Sullivan has examined the evolution of the shortlisted start-ups and their offerings to customers. In-depth profiles have been created for those companies expected to disrupt the market. Most of the start-ups in North America come from Silicon Valley, California. Automotive start-ups have been beefing up their presence in the Detroit area to attract engineering talent from traditional automakers and directly engage with OEMs in their facilities.
