The E-drive for the automotive market is steadily growing and is anticipated to witness a significant upswing in the near future. This growth is attributed to the increasing number of players focusing on providing targeted solutions for fungal infections. Present therapies addressing the symptoms of the disease include azoles, pyrimidines, echinocandins, polyenes, allylamines, and others.

In the initial stage of the supply chain, electric vehicle manufacturers acquire essential components from suppliers. These components encompass batteries, motors, E-brake boosters, and more. These components are then supplied to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of electric vehicles. Some manufacturing companies opt to outsource components to OEMs, allowing the latter to utilize the logo or name of the parent company.

Manufacturers play a pivotal role in the supply chain, adding maximum value to the product. The manufacturing stage involves diverse operations, including the procurement of different components from suppliers. Electric drives consume a substantial amount of electric energy during the manufacturing process. The selection of drives, design, and engineering requires a meticulous and analytical approach to determine specific needs and energy requirements.

The distribution channel has gained immense importance in recent times. Manufactured electric drives, meeting industry standards, are distributed to OEMs either through direct contact or a widespread dealership network worldwide. Electric drive manufacturers often enter into long-term contracts and agreements with vehicle OEMs for the consistent supply of electric drives. The final products are delivered through a well-defined channel to various vehicle OEMs.

End users represent the customers receiving the finished products, including both direct customers and the aftermarket. Installations are primarily handled by authorized dealers or experts. The aftermarket segment plays a crucial role in the end-user segment, considering the moderate lifespan of the drive system. The electric drive system requires regular servicing, providing aftermarket players with a substantial market share.
