Warehouse to have the fastest growth in this market during the forecast period

The key players operating in the logistics industry also offer warehousing services to OEMs as well as Tier I/Tier II component manufacturers. These services offered by logistics providers ensure that OEMs can deploy just in time (JIT) and just in sequence (JIS) assembly line production. The demand for these services depends on vehicle production. Hence, the regions with higher vehicle production will have a larger share in the warehousing market. In addition to warehousing, logistics service providers also offer assembly services for OEMs. For instance, DSV provides component assembly and warehousing services for Volvo Cars at Ghent, Belgium. Volvo manufactures its XC60, S60, V40, and V40 Cross Country models at the plant. During the forecast period, the warehouse segment is expected to witness the fastest growth due to the pre-assembly of components and increased vehicle production.

Maritime logistics is estimated to be the fastest-growing mode of transport in the automotive logistics market

The transportation of cargo through waterways is more economical than roadways and railways. It does not require a huge capital investment in construction and maintenance, except in the case of canals. Various countries such as France, Germany, Spain, China, India, and Brazil are working toward increasing the share of maritime transport in the logistics industry through investments and favorable policies. For instance, the European Union is working on 5 priority infrastructure projects that include 3 rail-marine projects and 2 inland waterways projects. Thus, marine logistics is estimated to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.
