Auto Care Association


BETHESDA, Md. – The Auto Care Association and IHS Automotive, a leading source of information and insight into critical areas that shape the automotive aftermarket, have partnered to present a new Industry Analysis Webinar Series featuring experts on key issues currently facing the industry. Each webinar will be presented by an IHS Automotive industry expert. The first webinar will be presented by Michael Robinet, managing director of automotive advisory services, IHS Automotive, on Tuesday, June 28, at 2 p.m. ET.

Robinet will be presenting, “A Decade of Change – Lightweighting the Key to Compliance.” Emissions standards in the U.S. (i.e., U.S. CAFE Fuel Economy and GHG standards) and around the world are driving OEMs and suppliers to strive for increased vehicle efficiency in the form of more efficient powertrains, reduced mass and increased aerodynamics through the use of lighter materials and electrification. In this webinar, Robinet will discuss the challenges facing both the OE and aftermarket industries and the various solutions OEMs and suppliers are implementing.

The Industry Analysis Webinar Series will include six webinars, scheduled from June through December 2016. Future webinar topics include information on consumers and the connected car, global forecasting and strategic planning, and auto care industry trends including powertrain and commercial vehicle. 

There is no fee to attend, but attendees are encouraged to register early due to limited availability at http://bit.ly/IHSWebinarEmissions. The webinars are open to Auto Care Association members. For more information, visit www.autocare.org/industry-analysis-webinars.
