As part of its strategy shaping the digitization of the Automotive Aftermarket TecAlliance releases the Automotive Report 2020. This new edition provides deeper market insights than ever before.

The latest edition gives a deep data analysis to ensure long-term success for the international automotive aftermarket.


Automotive Report 2020 – how TecAlliance is building the future to serve customers’ need


“The Automotive Report is derived from the Global Registration Vehicles in Operation (VIO) to paint a global picture of the current market situation”, explains Chief Editor Bernd Meijers. “For this year’s report, advanced machine learning algorithms are front and center in the whole process of creating the VIO data. Bulk data obtained from global sources is fed into an artificial intelligence (A.I.) tooling that automatically links the original raw data to the various vehicle tables with remarkable precision. The first results have revealed that the A.I. tooling ensures the best possible mapping against the global vehicle table that is known in the market — that’s how TecAlliance is building the future to serve customers’ needs.”


Product Owner Robbert Lasoe points out further details: “In addition, data transparency is taken to a new level, providing insights into the challenges TecAlliance is facing and how TecAlliance is dealing with them. For instance, at the time of this writing, TecAlliance is preparing a source quality document which will tell customers precisely which data fields TecAlliance is receiving from each of its sources.”


TecAlliance has matched the global data knowledge of its data specialists all with multiple experience in their particular fields and the knowledge of its subsidiaries in Mexico, Brazil, Asia and North-America about vehicles circulating in their home markets. The Automotive Report 2020 is the result of this  great team effort.
