Global Automotive Supplier Study


It’s easy to say shareholder value is important, but it is something different to understand what strategic and operational levers deliver exceptional shareholder value.

Automotive suppliers focused on delivering superior performance need to understand their own strengths and weaknesses, and have an understanding of what leading organizations within the industry or their competitive set have done to achieve superior value creation.

Exploring the drivers of exceptional shareholder return for automotive suppliers

To explore what actions have resulted in superior performance and enterprise value creation, Deloitte collaborated with IHS Global Insight (IHS) to analyze more than a decade of data for more than 200 Tier 1 global automotive suppliers to identify “winning” themes that consistently generated above-average shareholder value.

What kind of questions does the study explore?
  • Who are the top performers that created superior shareholder return on an overall basis, as well as within their region and segment?
  • How did the winners perform across financial and operational metrics versus the rest of the suppliers?
  • For the top performers, are there winning themes that emerge relative to what they have done to drive SHV?
  • What are the strategic and operational levers used to execute the winning themes and deliver exceptional shareholder value?
What suppliers are included in the study?

Our research analyzed 213 Tier-1 global automotive suppliers with automotive revenue of $500M+ based in the United States (43 suppliers), Europe (47 suppliers), Japan (91 suppliers), China and India (18 suppliers) and other parts of the world (14 suppliers).

Segments included electronics (31 suppliers), powertrain (75 suppliers), chassis (61 suppliers), exteriors (49 suppliers) and interiors/HVAC (41 suppliers).

We also conducted a survey of automotive supplier executives, primarily in North America, to understand their perspectives on how they have executed against the themes, and how they are likely to execute in the next five years.
