The automotive industry is entering a new era filled with innovation and promising change. A rapidly developing world coupled with increased globalization and the global turn towards renewable energy has revealed previously unconsidered needs and desires of automotive consumers.


As the industry’s digital revolution continues to accelerate, a world of opportunities is opening as the whole landscape of the automotive industry shifts.


Here at TRS Staffing, we are always looking to the future and take pride in identifying any automotive industry trends on the horizon. Let’s take a look at what the future of the automotive industry holds.

Autonomous vehicles

You needn’t look far into the archives of classic films to see the cinematic portrayal of self-driving cars—‘The Love Bug’ and ‘Knight Rider’ high amongst them. But autonomous vehicles (Avs) are no longer confined to futuristic dreams; they’re a reality of today’s world.


Self-driving or autonomous vehicles minimise the need for human drivers and look poised to transform everyday transportation.


Plans for autonomous vehicles have been in the works for many years and leading firms have hopes that they can reduce downtime, cut traffic and make transportation substantially safer.


‘How?’, you might ask:


AVs are equipped with innovative recognition technologies that can identify objects on the road and effectively avoid collisions. Researchers believe that these technologies can drastically reduce road accidents caused by human fatigue or negligence.


Whilst some automotive firms have been exploring the capabilities of self-driving cars for the past few years, we’re still some time away from wider usage. However, we are beginning to see the first steps in this ground-breaking project with vehicles displaying autonomous capabilities, such as hands-free parking.


Increased production of Electric Vehicles


Electric vehicles (EVs) are not a particularly new trend, but they are skyrocketing in popularity at the moment and rapidly becoming a car of choice across the globe.


Global electric vehicle sales hit record highs in 2023, with the acceleration of the electric and hybrid vehicle market driven by the pressing need to meet global sustainability targets.


The major benefit of electric cars can’t be overstated:

The contribution that they can make towards improving air quality in our towns and cities and reducing the use of fossil fuels is set to play an essential part in reducing global carbon emissions.


Entirely electric cars produce no carbon dioxide emissions when driving, which considerably reduces air pollution levels. With climate fears rising and the US government pushing forward with their 2030 Net-Zero plans, electric cars are anticipated to become more affordable and widespread in the near future.


Connected cars


Technology’s rapid evolution transcends industries, and the ways in which the internet has changed how people communicate and go about their daily lives need no introduction. Chief amongst them is the automotive industry as connected cars become the latest trend that is set to spread throughout the globe.


But what exactly is a connected car, you may be wondering?


A connected car is a vehicle that has its own connection to the internet, allowing the car to share connectivity and data with other devices inside and outside the car. With the demand for greater connectivity set to soar, 5G-enabled connected cars are earmarked to become the future of the automotive industry.


The benefits of connected cars include:

  • Access to a variety of entertainment services on the go
  • High-tech navigation systems through third-party apps
  • Advanced safety features to reduce the chances of an accident and protect you in the event of a crash
  • Enhanced security features to help you keep track of your vehicle, even when you’re not driving it.


The global connected car market is projected to grow steadily to 2032 and is set to soar as it redefines the transport industry as we know it.


Sustainable manufacturing operations


With the growing imperative to address environmental issues, the matter of sustainability can no longer be overlooked. The turn towards environmental awareness is shaping virtually every industry, from the latest construction trends to the future of vehicle technology.


To improve sustainability, vehicle manufacturing firms must install operations that incorporate weight reductions, recycled material, innovative sustainable materials, and new production methods.


Current trends, such as zero-emissions vehicles and carbon-neutral manufacturing, demonstrate how sustainability has improved throughout the automotive industry over the past decade.


As we begin to lean towards a net-zero world, sustainable manufacturing operations are set to become a key feature in the future of the automotive industry.
