Plummeting oil prices are denting the export revenues and fiscal balances of Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries, calling for greater economic diversification and fiscal adjustment strategies. To help offset the decline in oil revenues, GCC countries are expected to introduce a value-added tax in the next few years. The countries are also reducing energy subsidies. Qatar’s non-mining and quarrying sector has been growing at double-digit growth rates, with the governments of both Qatar and Saudi Arabia striving for more economic diversification. To help reduce the fiscal deficit and improve efficiencies, Saudi Arabia is expected to witness greater privatization over the next few years.

Market commoditization, low barriers to entry, and high customer price sensitivity are threatening the competitiveness of PPE distributors across the world. The traditional distribution model was about inventory management, timely product delivery, and a single point of contact for sourcing. While this remains the basis, the distribution model has gone through (and continues to go through) a transition, as there is increasing competition from several other types of companies—office supplies, e-commerce providers, and industry specialist resellers. This briefing discusses the various market forces that drive distributors to change their business models and explores the competitive strategies adopted by PPE distributors.

In 2016, 80% of the OEMs are expected to finalize their automation technology roadmaps. This will lead to strong growth in the driver assistance component market and open avenues for new business models to enter the automotive ecosystem. With improved testing environments and sensing capabilities, focus will now turn toward improving data acquisition and validation capabilities. The industry has numerous challenges from a technology perspective in terms of finding the ideal sensing suite that provides vision capabilities in multiple driving conditions at a reasonable price proposition. The software and validation capabilities of today are also not sufficient enough to sustain a complex autonomous driving scenario. But above all, the regulatory framework that governs these products are crucial to the success of deployment of autonomous driving in the market going forward. The strongest driver for growth of autonomous driving is likely to be a strong partnership that emerges in the market. The smarter players will forge a reliable ecosystem with diverse entities that are capable of providing value at various levels of the value chain.

The payment industry expected mobile payment to become a major player. But market adoption failed to meet expectations. Thanks to the EMV (Europay MasterCard and Visa liability) shift in the US and many global initiatives, payment infrastructures are ready for a mobile payment explosion. Furthermore, smartphones have become the staple of everyday life, and millennials are keen to use mobile for payment. As a result, mobile payments are now a growth opportunity for the payment industry.

The advent of autonomous driving has seen traditional OEMs and tech companies take varied approaches, but one thing remains constant—the development of an autonomous driving system with the driver out of the loop. Such a development will adversely affect consumer sentiments toward core chassis components that aid in better driving dynamics, thereby allowing the driver to have a pleasurable driving experience. The future is predominantly going to be autonomous, hence it is imperative to develop systems that control chassis without the driver in the loop, yet provide an enriching drive. Therefore, intelligent chassis control systems such as active ride control, active engine braking, active trace control, and zero-gravity seats are some of the technologies being researched by OEMs in order to make the ride more comfortable and easy.
