Cybersecurity, AI and the Green Revolution – Trends in the Automotive Industry Shaping the Future Job Market

AUTOMOTIVECybersecurity, AI and the Green Revolution - Trends in the Automotive Industry Shaping the Future Job Market

Data cybersecurity, the use of the latest technologies, electric vehicles, and shortening supply chains are just some of the current trends in the automotive industry that are impacting the job market, as presented in the latest ManpowerGroup report, “Automotive World of Work.” As the report shows, with the development of breakthrough technologies, there will also be increased demand for professionals specializing in working with them.

The latest ManpowerGroup report, “Automotive World of Work”, analyzes five global trends in the automotive industry and presents how they impact the job market. Increased demand for IT talent and skills and the need for continuous upskilling of employees to keep up with the galloping green transformation mean that employers will have to reassess their development and team assumptions.

Cybersecurity and artificial intelligence in the automotive industry – this is currently important

Modern vehicles are equipped with over a hundred sensors, which “produce” information almost continuously. Industry analysts estimate that each network-connected car generates as much as 2 terabytes of raw data every day, equivalent to 500,000 photos or 13 million document pages. These gigantic, constantly growing datasets and their proper use shape the future of motoring, but equally important is their proper protection. More than a million dedicated robots already support the automotive production area, which is a growing trend. McKinsey reports that industry experts predict that by 2035, 37% of new cars will feature advanced autonomous driving technology. All of this makes cybersecurity a priority in this industry. According to PwC data, all car manufacturers expect a significant increase in the number of cyber attacks on vehicles, and 89% believe that high-level vehicle security is a significant competitive advantage. This naturally generates organizations’ demand for IT professionals, data analysts, or cybersecurity specialists.

Safe is a priority for everyone

The automotive industry can certainly say that it is in a phase of dynamic, critical transformation. Vehicles are getting safer, permanently connected to the network, using the latest technologies, including artificial intelligence, and manufacturers are investing huge amounts of money in the development of future technologies. The use of advanced assistants, such as lane-keeping and braking assistant or intelligent cruise control, is increasing.

Automotive focused on locality

Nearly two-thirds of manufacturers (64%) claim that they are currently focusing on possible regionalization and shortening their supply chains.

The green revolution in automotive

In the coming years, the ecological transformation of companies will continue to gather pace, especially in the automotive industry. 73% of employers in the automotive industry claim that they are currently recruiting or planning to recruit for “green jobs”. Morningstar data confirms this, indicating that by 2030, electric vehicles will account for 40% of global sales. This is about five times the number of electric vehicles sold in 2022, which translates into 40 million electric vehicles and another 20 million hybrids. With the development of vehicle electrification, the demand for public charging infrastructure will increase. The International Energy Agency reports that there are currently over 2.7 million public charging points worldwide, and the annual growth rate of these stations has returned to the pre-pandemic level of 50%.
