On the occasion of the launch of Intelligent Mobility in India, Sarwant Singh, Managing Partner, Frost & Sullivan said, “The mobility space in India has seen exciting developments in the past 12 months with the emergence of new business models. With the government’s emphasis on electrification driving collaborative development in the space of shared mobility, we are heading toward a dynamic phase of transformative mobility.”
Frost & Sullivan will be evaluating many aspects of the automotive industry, aiming to unravel best-practice solutions, exciting investment opportunities, and technologies that will garner the maximum potential. Mega Trends like urbanization, pollution, congestion, connectivity, and globalization are powering the shift away from private vehicle ownership to new business models like car sharing, carpooling, ride-hailing, integrated mobility, and dynamic shuttles.
Talking about the future of mobility in India, Kaushik Madhavan, Vice President, Mobility Practice, Frost & Sullivan, said, “Mobility in India will be driven by the need to make transportation affordable, efficient and shared. In this direction, the Intelligent Mobility Summit aims to bring all key stakeholders in the automotive and non-automotive space together on a common platform to share and discuss innovative ideas and solutions to make Mobility seamless.”
The plenary sessions will share insights on the development of an ecosystem that will enable industry stakeholders including educational institutions to contribute to developing affordable and innovative solutions for the Indian market. These sessions will also throw light on the need to collaborate with young start-ups active in data analytics to share data and generate valuable information that can be used to understand customer preferences and expectations better.
Mobility experts will share unique insights on how the role of the automotive value chain will evolve as we see service, maintenance, and second life being bundled into a common overarching value proposition. This unique forum will unfold the reasons why the mobility industry is transforming, what new business models are emerging, and where the real revenues lie. It will also address challenges, ever-expanding opportunities and technology-led disruptions along with unparalleled industry insights on a broad range of topics such as:
- Digital Transformation and the emergence of new business models
