Abstract

Technological developments accelerating in the 21st century are making great changes in the automotive sector. Due to the reliance on technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, cloud computing and internet of objects, self-driving cars have an essential place in Industry 4.0. However, it seems that these technologies will change the global market share of developing and less developed countries’ in the automotive industry. The rising trend of reshoring activities of developed countries are expected to affect the global automotive industry. In this paper, we aim to investigate the impact of Industry 4.0 and the digital transformation on the automotive industry. Also, we aim to put a brief description of the social impacts of reshoring and how developing and less developed countries will keep or increase their market share in the global automotive industry.
