World Automotive Components Award

Choosing quality and reliable, objectively the best car components is, oddly enough, much more difficult than choosing a car itself. As a rule, personal preferences are the determining factor when buying a car. With regard to auto components, liking the manufacturer is frankly not enough. In this case, it is necessary to take into account the set of experts' opinions, both in the field of components production and their application in the service departments, and the end users. Long operational tests, laboratory studies, comparative analysis of the characteristics and parameters of competitor products can reveal the true quality of automotive parts and accessories. Unfortunately, in practice it is not uncommon for automotive components with genuinely better properties to be overshadowed by products from companies with better marketing and pricing policies.  

We believe that the time has come to understand the true state of affairs in this market segment, to give a real estimation of the world's automotive components and to name the best brands. To achieve this goal, we believe the best tool is an objective award. A comprehensive list of component manufacturers, open voting, and an authoritative panel of experts - these are all components of our World Automotive Components Awards.

Truth is our goal

Our main aim in hosting the Award is to recognize the true leaders in the production of automotive components. In this regard, we offer a full list of manufacturers as nominees, where relatively new market players with promising and innovative developments are presented along with world-renowned companies with many years of experience. The leaders will be determined by an open vote.

We are open

In reality it is important not only to clarify the real picture of the market for automotive components but also to make this information available to as many motorists as possible. We have selected the most authoritative and renowned media partners.

World scale.

This is not just because the award is international and the nominees come from different countries. The essence of the award is that both the voting and the results are shared with the international automotive community. Both the producers and consumers should grasp the powerful potential of the World Automotive Component Awards in the unified automotive space: the winner of this award in any of the nominations is global recognition.  


We are fully aware of the responsibility that we bear in organizing and conducting the World Automotive Components Awards. That is why we have invited a council of experts consisting of leading industry specialists to guarantee transparency in vote counting.

This award is an annual event: only complete objectivity and accuracy of the data and results allows us to hold this event, openly looking into the eyes of automotive component manufacturers, our partners and colleagues.

We wish good luck to all the nominees and may the most deserving win!
