There’s a massive software megatrend playing out in the industry — it’s called ACE.
There are Autonomous cars — which can automatically help you avoid a head-on collision. It involves Connected vehicles that are linked to the internet for your infotainment systems. And there’s a paradigm shift towards Electric vehicles due to environmental concerns.
But carmakers aren’t tech experts. And many of them don’t want to hire in-house teams to build all this electrification and tech stuff either.
So guess who wins?
Companies like Tata Technologies. They’re doing the hard work and helping auto manufacturers to outsource to innovate and launch products quicker.
But will its IPO draw investor attention given that Tata Elxsi, a rival from the house of Tata, is already listed on the stock exchanges? Is the IPO pricing too high? And the big question is if the market is actually large enough to accommodate all the players?
