The COVID-19 epidemic was labelled a worldwide pandemic by WHO after spreading to numerous nations and multiplying the number of patients in a matter of weeks. The COVID-19 epidemic has had a negative impact on numerous economies throughout the world. Combat tactics such as total lockdown and quarantine to combat COVID-19 have had a significant negative impact on various businesses throughout the world, including the automobile industry. The impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the car industry has evolved from a supply shock to a worldwide demand shock. The uncertainty surrounding the length of the lockdown and supply chain disruptions has made it much more difficult for industry stakeholders to forecast the automobile sector's revival.


In 2021, the powertrain and after treatment category had the highest revenue share of the automotive ESO market. This is due to the electrification of powertrains as a replacement for internal combustion engines fueled by petroleum and gasoline, which can reduce the environmental effect of carbon emissions. OEM investments in powertrain technology are expected to have a beneficial influence on the growth of the powertrain and after treatment industry. Furthermore, because to its capacity to perceive and recognize its surroundings and provide safe mobility, the adoption of autonomous driving/ADAS is predicted to expand significantly throughout the projection period. ADAS is made up of a variety of sensors, including as lidar, GPS, radar, inertial measurement units, and others, which give enhanced sensory information and control systems to help you navigate.

In 2021, the prototype segment had the highest revenue share and is likely to lead the automotive ESO market during the forecast period. This is due to the automobile industry's growing use of 3D printing technology to create a prototype of an assembly, specific pieces, or a whole car model. Manufacturers may use 3D printing technology to swiftly discover flaws in prototypes and implement remedial steps, resulting in a more cost-effective strategy. As ESPs engage in the development of new test centres in an attempt to expand and fulfil the expanding demand for automotive testing, the testing category is predicted to account for the quickest growth, achieving a CAGR throughout the forecasted years.

In 2021, the on-shore category had the most revenue share of the entire market and is predicted to expand the quickest throughout the forecast period. This is due to OEMs' growing desire to work with locally accessible ESPs. This will aid in avoiding the risk, as many nations do not adhere to intellectual property copyright regulations. The obstacles encountered while working with ESPs from a foreign area, such as various time zones, language hurdles, enforced rules and regulations, and others, limit OEMs' preference for outsourcing from other countries, resulting in a considerable rise in demand for the on-shore market. During the projection period, the off-shore segment is predicted to increase significantly. This is due to OEMs' growing preference for outsourcing services to low-cost nations such as India, China, Brazil, Mexico, and Ukraine. With the highest number of engineering graduates and suitable capabilities among all low-cost nations for ESO, India is heavily favored by OEMs, fueling growth in this area.

15. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
