The characteristics of the international auto parts industry

1, The trend of the supporting system and modular supply is in the ascendant

      The increasingly fierce market competition forces the change of the whole car system: purchase a single component to purchase the whole one.The system is not only beneficial to oems to make full use of spare parts enterprises professional advantage, but also can simplify the work and shorten the development cycle of new products. Parts suppliers must have a stronger technology development strength so that it can provide more system products and technology for the vehicle assembly plant. The more and more manufacturers are involved in the development and research of new products, its technical and economic strength is becoming more and more powerful.
      On the basis of supporting system, bigger auto parts manufacturing enterprises put forward the concept of modular supply. The so-called module refers to the highly integrated and multi-function large parts which is formed by the arrangement of components and systems. In the modular supply, parts enterprises take up many development work of new products and technology. Not only in the product, but also in technology, Oems more and more depend on parts manufacturers, so auto parts online in the automotive industry has played more and more important position.

Meanwhile, in order to obtain greater benefits, the international parts suppliers reduce or even stop the production which is un competitive advantage, lower value-added and technical content, they purchase comparative advantage products in the worldwide.

3, Accelerated the speed of industrial transfer
