Global Automotive Reconfigurable Body Panel Market – Introduction

Advances in technologies and manufacturing techniques in the automotive industry are leading to the development of smarter and safer vehicles. Automakers are spending significantly on research and development to manufacture and develop innovative production techniques and components for the automotive industry. An automotive reconfigurable body panel is a new technology used in the manufacturing of vehicles. The automotive reconfigurable body panel is a relatively new concept, and it is still in the development phase. Several major OEMs/automakers, such as BMW and Toyota, are developing vehicles with reconfigurable body panels. These panels are able to change colors, they can change shape, are lightweight, and easy to assemble.

Automotive reconfigurable panels can change the esthetics appearance or style of the vehicle as per the requirement of the vehicle owner. The panels can adapt the shape as per the configuration of the vehicle and the requirement of the vehicle owner. The panels are expected to contain a motor that allows the driver to adjust and setup or customize the panel, according to his requirement.
