Q4 2022 “Automotive will never be the Same”

December 13, 2022

If you are waiting for 2019 to return, today is a good day to reevaluate your expectations. Over the last few years Seraph has been in dozens of supplier plants and worked with major OEMs around the globe.

Supply chain shocks forced a reevaluation of risk at the same time as EVs necessitate building new supply chains. For those outside of manufacturing, supply chain stability has become a phrase they wish they never heard, but they have.

Below is our quarterly report chronicling the current challenges and powerful trends that will determine profitability for 2023 and the market share leaders of the next decade.
