Global Automotive Executive Survey 2021

Balancing opportunity and risk: The automotive industry faces dramatic changes


The way that cars are purchased will change dramatically in the future. Executives of international automotive groups are convinced of this, as our latest 22nd edition of the Global Automotive Executive Survey shows. The CEOs in our survey expect that the traditional distribution channels - namely dealers and networks - will increasingly be replaced by online channels. More than three quarters (78 percent) of respondents expect that most cars will be purchased online by 2030.
