New technologies, disruptive business models, uncertainty in the global economy and political landscape, and slow growth of global demand are the major challenges in the Industrials, Manufacturing & Transportation space. All companies are struggling with the digitization and the internet of things, and some have to reinvent themselves, because their current business model is under threat. Automated driving and electric mobility are just two illustrative buzz words for this phenomenon. This is coupled with a political threat to the freedom of movement of goods and growing investment restrictions.
