How will cars be powered in 20 to 30 years? Which raw materials will still be available? What sort of demands will people place on mobility and energy supply in the future? Anyone who asks questions like these will find themselves confronted head-on with the change processes that are affecting us all, such as globalization, demographic developments, climate change, and the conservation of resources. That’s why Bosch regularly analyzes the predicted development of underlying conditions known collectively as “megatrends.”
