The automotive industry is at an inflection point. Global shortages in semiconductor chips and other electronic components, as well as new vulnerabilities in the supply chain, have disrupted one of the largest sectors of the economy and highlighted the necessity of more agile operations. Adding stress to automakers is the rapid shift to electric vehicles, or EVs–it’s estimated that by 2035, the largest automotive markets will be fully electric–and the evolution of autonomous driving systems, both of which are heavily dependent on the chips and electronic components already stalled in production and in high demand. What’s more, these changes are hardly optional if companies want to sustain their competitive advantage; laws set to take effect over the next ten years, including OEM-supported bans on internal combustion engine (ICE) sales, are a clear indication of the direction of the market, and leave little room for hesitation in inventory planning and management.
So what does this mean for your automotive and electronic component operations, especially parts like semiconductor chips and electronic assemblies?

The Challenge for Automotive Companies
Today’s automotive industry is heavily dependent on technology-based electronic capabilities and components that are fluid, dynamic, and at risk of obsolescence, a result of aggressive and rapid development cycles and limited OEM support for user-end maintenance and out-of-production parts. What’s more, automakers have increasingly found themselves in precarious positions at the mercy of changing economic tides and world events. Not only does this make it difficult for you to maintain your critical components and your core functions, but it can add persistent uncertainty to your operations.
Sourcing, testing, and repair solutions from DEX can help you stay steady, reducing your dependency on long lead times, price swings, and constant reinvention to ensure you keep moving forward while keeping pace with technology and innovation. We have the resources to adapt and respond effectively to an ever-changing automotive environment in ways that improve the profitability and agility of your business.
Stay focused on your strategic and tactical goals–not supply chain issues–with services from DEX like:
- Rapid shipping and receiving, so you can get your parts in a matter of weeks, not months
- Rigorous, best-in-class testing and screening to ensure the quality, authenticity, and functionality of certified and warrantied parts
- Reverse engineering, manufacturing, and remanufacturing services, as well as rebuild, repair, and refurbishment expertise, from a skilled and experienced team of engineers
