Automotive and Mechatronics forum

Automotive and Mechatronics

Navarre has a significant number of companies in the automotive sector (5.9% of its GVA), as the largest exporting sector in the region by far (45% of the total). As concerns areas for growth and innovation, the development of automotive parts manufacturers and their progress in the value chain particularly stands out in addition to the promotion of sustainable mobility, electrical vehicles and driverless vehicles as future trends.

On the other hand, the region has special advanced manufacturing capabilities with the machinery, electronics and production system companies grouped together under mechatronics (6.9% of the GVA). In this area, there is greater technological specialization as it accounts for nearly 39% of all patents in the last few years and 24.4% of exports from Navarre.

You can find more information on the importance of this sector in the 2020 Navarre Industrial Plan.
