List of the 5 largest electrical industry companies in Germany

With 870,000 employees and 182 billion euros in sales, the electrical industry is one of the most important German industrial sectors. The product range is diverse, as our list of the top 5 shows:

1. Robert Bosch GmbH, Stuttgart

Robert Bosch is a German conglomerate with a technical focus and the world’s largest automotive supplier. Electrical engineering and electronics play an important role in almost all of the company’s divisions – for example in automotive technology, industrial technology, power tools and household appliances from Bosch. The Group has 395,000 associates

Update 2022: In view of the scarce availability of semiconductors worldwide, Bosch will continue to invest heavily in this sector in 2022. For example, the existing semiconductor sites in Dresden and Reutlingen will be expanded more strongly, and a new semiconductor test center will be opened in Penang (Malaysia).

2. ZF Friedrichshafen AG, Friedrichshafen

ZF Friedrichshafen has been involved in driveline technology for vehicles and industry since 1915. In the process, electrical engineering and, more recently, electronics have also been and are increasingly used. A separate Electronic Systems business unit has existed since 2013. The Group employs more than 153,000 people.

Update 2022: With the ZF Commercial Vehicle Solutions (CVS) division, the technology group is now also playing a role in the field of digital fleet management. The platform developed, called SCALAR, enables the orchestration of vehicle fleets through AI and thus supports the operational efficiency of freight logistics and passenger transport.

3. Infineon Technologies AG, Neubiberg

Infineon is Germany’s largest semiconductor manufacturer and a global leader in semiconductors for the automotive industry. Infineon products are used in many electronic devices and machines – in addition to automobiles, in machinery, household appliances, electronic devices and networked systems. Infineon has nearly 47,000 employees.

Update 2023: In early 2023, Infineon Technologies AG announced that it had sold its high reliability DC-DC converter business, including thick film hybrid products, to Micross. Micross Components, Inc. is an American company and supplier of microelectronic components.

4. HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA, Lippstadt

HELLA’s business is based on two pillars: Vehicle lighting and illumination technology and vehicle parts trading. In addition, HELLA manufactures solutions for driver assistance, climate control systems and other electronic automotive applications. HELLA employs 36,000 people. In the future, the company will be part of the French automotive supplier Faurecia.

Update 2024: In 2024, the brake joint venture Hella Pagid will be completely taken over by HELLA. Hella Pagid is a joint venture between HELLA and TMD Friction. HELLA will sell all brake products under the HELLA brand from October 1, 2024.
