Every year, the number of motor vehicles in the world's top five hundred enterprises accounts for a considerable proportion. We are familiar with the well-known car companies like TOYOTA and Volkswagen. But they are still far from supporting the car industry in the global economy. Suppliers of spare parts are often the mainstay of the industry.
Today, I would like to take stock of the world's top 10 auto parts suppliers. Many suppliers themselves are the top five hundred companies in the world.
1.Robert Bosch - Germany
BOSCH is the world's largest supplier of auto parts. In 2017, the world's top 500 enterprises ranked 76, which could be said to be a pillar enterprise in the German automobile industry.
BOSCH's revenue from car parts accounts for only about half of its total revenue. In 2017, the revenue reached 78 billion 100 million euros, of which the auto business reached 47 billion 400 million euros, an increase of 7.8% over the same period last year. The R & D cost is 7 billion 500 million euros, accounting for about 10% of sales.
Passenger car field
BOSCH mainly produces batteries, filters, spark plugs, brake products, sensors, gasoline and diesel systems, starters and generators, which are widely used in domestic ESP body stabilization systems, mostly from BOSCH in domestic factories, such as BOSCH Suzhou and United Automobile Electronics.
BOSCH is working with Daimler to launch a complete automatic driving and unmanned system for urban roads. The main goal of the project is to make automatic driving on urban roads realistic by the beginning of 2020s.
New energy field and high performance power assembly system
BOSCH is actively distributing new energy fields and efficient powertrain systems in China. In March this year, BOSCH Automotive (Wuxi) Co., Ltd. was officially founded, and the world's first battery industrialization project, the 48V battery project, started construction.
BOSCH group will continue to develop hydrogen fuel cell technology in the automotive industry, continue to tap the potential of internal combustion engines, and enhance the development of automatic driving and driving assistance technology. BOSCH expects that fuel cell will be the mainstream solution in the field of automotive powertrain in 2030.
2.ZF - Germany
EFU group is a German automotive active safety system expert, transmission and chassis parts of the industry leaders, the world's top 500 companies in 2017 ranked 263, we generally referred to as "ZF".
Unlike BOSCH, ZF is best known for producing gearboxes. It includes: vertical 8AT used by BMW / Audi, Jeep, Land Rover, Honda 9AT and so on.
In 2015, by completing the acquisition of TRW, ZF further consolidated its own status and became the world's auto parts giant.
In 2017, the research and development expenditure of ZF was 2 billion 200 million euros, an increase of about 15% compared to 2016.
This year, it is worth mentioning that the group's global R & D investment will exceed 2 billion euros for the development of advanced electric drive products, transmission technologies, vehicle safety systems, and autopilot technology. In other words, the proportion of Group R & D expenditure in the budget will increase from 6.1% to about 6.5% this year.
At the same time, Zus will continue to invest in real estate, factories and equipment (investment in 2017 is 1 billion 400 million euros), including the planned construction of two factories to produce electric drive components.
3.Continental Group Germany
Speaking of the German continental group, everyone may not be familiar with it, but I don't think anyone knows about Ma tyres. The tyres are continental tires. The German mainland ranked 213 in the world's top 500 enterprises in 2017.
The sales volume of brake caliper, safety electronic equipment, vehicle intelligent communication system, automobile instrument and fuel supply system is the first.
The electronic brake system and brake booster have a global sales volume of second.
In addition to tires, the whole group also involves many fields of automobile industry, including braking system, engine injection system, ESP, etc.
Following the acquisition of SIEMENS VDO by the mainland group, the vehicle electronic driving recorder, sensor and control system have become an important product of the company, and the global sales are the first in the world.
In the field of automation and autonomous driving, the demand for cameras, radar and laser radar sensors is increasing, whether at the current primary stage or in the full automatic driving phase of the future. Since 1999, the mainland group has produced about 60 million ADAS sensors in total.
Magna ranked 209 in the world's top 500 enterprises in 2017. It is the most diversified auto parts supplier in the world. In 28 countries, there are 335 manufacturing plants, 96 product development, engineering and sales centers, and over 168 thousand employees.
Magna products are very rich, from inside and outside decoration to powertrain, from mechanical parts to material parts to electronic parts. With regard to every aspect of the automobile, it can basically save a car with its own spare parts. This is the breadth that many first tier car companies can't do.
In the autonomous vehicle (such as Geely, Chery, Jianghuai and so on), the gatrac double clutch transmission is widely used, and after Magna's acquisition of the gatrac, the 7DCT300 dual clutch transmission is fully matched with the high output of the UKL type engine platform (UKL), which helps to achieve energy saving and emission reduction and improve the driving performance of the vehicle.
In April 26, 2018, Magna announced the establishment of a joint venture with the Beijing Hainachuan Automotive Parts Co to put into operation the gate module in Beijing, and hand in hand to partner Innoviz, a strategic investment partner of last August, to provide solid-state laser radar technology for multiple vehicle platforms of the BMW group.
Magna has been developing and manufacturing advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) products for automobile manufacturers for over 15 years. In August 2017, Magna introduced MAX4-, a highly integrated, customizable and extensible automatic driving platform for automatic driving at the L4 level, applicable to urban roads and highway conditions.
5.Love essence machine - Japan
As for AI, we should be familiar with the transversal 6AT gearbox, which is widely used in Japanese, French, German and autonomous vehicles.
As a part supplier of TOYOTA holdings, Ai Xin machine itself can be ranked the 324 among the top 500 enterprises in the world in 2017.
In addition to the 6AT we know well, most of the CVT used in Japanese cars have most of the parts of love letter. In addition, Camry's transverse 8AT, crown 8AT, and Prado's longitudinal 6AT are all love letters.
Recently, according to foreign media, Aisin group discovered the method of developing motor hybrid system with the minimum cost for automatic transmission, and designed a single motor hybrid system to adapt to the position of the torque converter in the gearbox assembly.
The device will initially be used in front wheel drive cars equipped with 8 speed automatic transmission.
Aisin is currently providing 8 speed gearboxes for leading European carmakers such as BMW (BMW), Mini, Opel, Peugeot, Volkswagen and Volvo (VolvoCars) through Aisin AW.
In the interview, NaomiFujie, executive vice president of AisinSeiki, revealed that the new hybrid model will gradually replace the 8 speed gearbox produced by the company.
By 2025, the new hybrid model will account for about 10% of total drive sales (except manual transmission), and is expected to grow to nearly 15 million units.
6.Electric loading - Japan
Denso, Japan's largest auto parts supplier. At first, it was a subordinate parts supplier of TOYOTA motor, and later became a subsidiary of TOYOTA group. The top 500 companies in the world ranked 236 in 2017.
Although the popularity of China is not as good as that of Ai Xin, it is bigger than AI. Including: air conditioning equipment, electronic control products, radiators, spark plugs, combinatorial instruments, filters, industrial robots, telecommunications products and information processing equipment. There are 21 kinds of products in the world ranking the first in the world.
In May 15th of this year, the new security product, the rear mounted driver status monitor, was launched on Denso. The product can be installed on existing vehicles, and it is expected to reduce traffic accidents of commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses.
The driver's state monitor can identify the driver's face through a camera in the car, such as the phenomenon that the driver's attention is not concentrated, the dozing, the driving posture is not appropriate, and the warning sounds will be issued.
The new product uses FotoNation's facial image recognition technology and neural network technology to effectively increase the recognition points of facial features, thus significantly improving the detection precision of driving state and the anti transformation of face organs covering objects such as masks and sunglasses.

Hyundai Mobis Co mainly provides parts for modern KIA's automobile products. It is precisely said that it is a wholly owned subsidiary of Korea modern KIA group.
As the biggest behind the Korean car, it has a close proximity to Magna's business span, which is the key factor for the Korean car to go to the world. It ranked 323 in the world's top five hundred companies in 2017, one higher than the Japanese love faith machine.
At present, the modern Korean 6AT gearbox is the works of the Jiangsu, including Sonata, Shengda, K5 and so on. It matches the 2.0T engine mainly, and the 1.6T engine matches the dual clutch transmission, which is also from the Mo BIS, and its factory in Yancheng, Jiangsu.
