PALO ALTO, Calif. --- The Power Transmissions group at consulting firm Frost & Sullivan will host an analyst briefing teleconference to address the hybrid vehicle market on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 3 p.m. EDT. The briefing will explore strategic analysis of hybrid automobiles and their impact on the U.S. motors markets, the fuel situation in the U.S., hybrid vehicle forecasts and electric motor forecasts. Those interested in participating in the teleconference can send an e-mail to Tori Foster,, with the following information for registration: full name, company name, title, telephone number, fax number and e-mail address. Upon receipt of the above information, a confirmation/pass code for the live briefing will be emailed to you. As demand for hybrid vehicles increases, the demand for motors used in hybrid vehicles will also rise, offering greater opportunities for commercial motor manufacturers. However, uncertainty regarding profitability and the pace of acceptance of hybrid vehicles remains a cause of concern for both automotive manufacturers as well as their motor suppliers, the consulting firm said. For commercial motor manufacturers to succeed in the hybrid-vehicle market, they must obtain a deep understanding of specific automotive requirements and be aware of the operational, supply chain and technical needs of the automotive industry. "Due to the absence of standardized technologies, every order is customized, requiring motor manufacturers to fully understand the design constraints and requirements of the automotive manufacturer before embarking on developing such motors in large volumes," said Frost & Sullivan research analyst Sanjeev R. Sridharan. In particular, the briefing will benefit commercial motor manufacturers, automotive suppliers and automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEM).
