Major Automotive Manufacturing and Producing Nations

Within the last ten years there have been major changes when it comes to the automobile industry. Not only have the technologies changed with the rise of more fuel-efficient and eco friendly vehicles taking over the market place but there also has been a major change in the world leaders when it comes to automobile production. In 2000 the United States lead the world in production with roughly 13 million units produced, followed by Japan at 10.1 million. In 2005 US was in a steady decline while other markets rose sharply. The most noted was China whose automobile production doubled by 2005 to 5.8 million units. And during as early as 2008 Japan had taken over the number one spot with over 11.5 million units produced, followed close behind by China at 9.4 million. At this time the US had a large decrease in market share with only around 8.7 million units produced.
 
Since 2009, China has been the biggest car the manufacturing industrial country in the world. Motor industry in China developed quickly after 1990. To give more specific stats, in 2009, roughly 13.8 million cars are made in China, among which are 8 million passenger cars, and 3.4 auto trucks and remaining are other. Among the car the made, Chinese local brand manufactured almost 44%, and joint ventures along with foreign automobile manufacturers manufactured the remaining others. Local brands of China include BYD, Geely, Hafei, Chery, Roewe, the Great wall etc. Foreign automobile manufacturers in China include Mitsubishi, Volkswagen, Hyundai, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Nissan etc. China has been attaining the top slots and at times first in the Best 10 Lists of the car the industrial countries. The motor industry of Japan is one of the most known industries of the world. In 2008 Japan was the greatest car the industrial country. But in 2009, China surpassed Japan and became the largest automobile manufacturer in the world. Though, motor industry of Japan is still the best in qualities as they deliver a large amount of high quality vehicles that are far more efficient. There are many companies which make the car, motorcycles, building vehicles, engines etc in Japan and their reach is quite spread across different continents. Japanese automobile manufacturers include Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Daihatsu, Mazda, Suzuki, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Kawasaki, Isuzu, Mitsuoka and Yamaha. Japan is usually ranked in the top ranks and at times top three in the Best 10 Lists of the car the industrial countries. In 1980 motor industry of America began and it began with a success. Soon after the beginning the US started to develop quickly and became one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world. US began with hundreds of companies, but after 1920, three large companies, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler, started to dominate over the industry and today they are a huge superpower in automobiles industry. After the Second World War these companies continued to prosper. US is usually in the top three and at times gets ranked third place in the Best 10 Lists of the car the industrial countries.

Slovenia Autos Report 2015

Slovenia Autos Report 2015

Date Published: Jan 14 2015

The Slovenian auto production sector looks set for strong recovery in 2015, following five consecutive
years of decline. H114 figures also showed a decline, of 9.8% to 48,826 units, according to figures from the
International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA). Passenger cars (48,778 units)
accounted for virtually all Slovenian production over the January-June 2014 period. Given the poor start to
the year, this means that we are still targeting a slight decline (of 1.8%) for 2014.

Sweden Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 14 2015

BMI View: BMI maintains a bullish view on vehicle sales in Sweden, based on a strong rebound from low
base effects due weak sales in 2013, pent-up demand following sustained declines in recent years, and a
broad recovery in the economy. The primary driver of this growth is the passenger car segment, which we
expect to increase 18% in 2014. We also expect to see a strong recovery in the country's commercial vehicle
(CV) segment, and we forecast a 15% over the full year.

Date Published: Jan 14 2015

While our view that the light vehicle market would return to 16mn units in 2014 and that the light truck
market would outperform still very much hold true, the strength of demand has surpassed initial
expectations. With December sales expected to have continued the period of strong sales growth with more
holiday discounts on offer and fuel prices trending lower, we have revised our full-year estimate slightly,
with the total volume being largely unchanged but the growth projection reflecting the truck

Egypt Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 7 2015

In 2015, economic and political conditions will be even more supportive of sales growth and increased
foreign investment in the sector, which will also buoy the production segment. Given the incredibly high
base of 2014, we do not expect the same levels of growth, but still expect solid double-digit growth of 15%
for cars and 10% for light trucks. With the heavier commercial vehicle market set to benefit from improving
business sentiment and the bus market receiving a boost from both the government's scheme to replace

Kuwait Autos Report Q1 2015

Kuwait Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 7 2015

In recent months, there has been a slowdown in new car sales within Kuwait. 8M14 sales data from the Best
Selling Cars blog suggests that annual growth has eased back to 2%, from a reported 7% growth over H114.
This makes for total sales of 100,964 units year-to-date. Against this deteriorating backdrop, BMI has
scaled back its own forecast for 2014 new vehicle sales in Kuwait, from 8% to 3%. This more cautious
stance comes against a backdrop of plunging prices on world markets for Kuwait's key commodity export,
oil.

BMI holds a bullish outlook for the UK passenger car market going into 2015, on the back of improving consumer sentiment and pent-up demand in the market from a period of sustained declines. We forecast 5.6% growth in vehicle sales off the back of increases of 5.2% and 8.3% in the passenger car and commercial vehicle segments, respectively.

Date Published: Dec 31 2014
New vehicle sales remain strong in Bahrain, although they have eased slightly, from 22% annual growth over H114, to 17% annual growth over 8M14. This still takes year-to-date sales to the 42,266 unit mark. For the full-year, BMI is maintaining its view of sales growth in the region of 14.5%, taking full-year new vehicle sales to the 63,300 mark.

Canada Autos Report Q1 2015

Canada Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Dec 31 2014
Sustained lower oil prices, and the likelihood of more to come, given OPEC's decision not to cut oil output, has exacerbated the outperformance of the Canadian light truck segment in the latter months of 2014. This also means our more optimistic scenario for the passenger car segment to achieve positive growth in 2014 is looking unachievable, following a 4.2% year-on-year (y-o-y) decline in November.

Date Published: Dec 31 2014
The main political news affecting the Iranian auto industry over the past quarter was the announcement on November 24 2014 that there has been an extension to the deadline for a 'permanent' agreement to be reached on the Islamic Republic's nuclear programme- which aims to ensure that Iran cannot use its enrichment activities to produce a nuclear weapon before the West can intervene - until June 30 2015.

Israel Autos Report 2015

Date Published: Dec 31 2014
Although BMI had been concerned that the conflict in Gaza during Q314 would undermine new vehicle sales in Israel - which were down by 12.1% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the month of July - there was no lasting effect. So, based on current buoyant sales trends, BMI is targeting full-year total new vehicle sales of around 260,000 units, representing annual growth of around 16%. BMI believes that there will be a slowdown in new vehicle sales growth in 2015.

We have revised our 2014 and 2015 auto sales growth forecast for the Philippines to 29.4% and 13.3%, up from 21.7% and 9.4% respectively and we believe that the country will continue to see sales for both the passenger car and commercial vehicle (CV) segments surge over the coming quarters.

BMI forecasts a 20.0% increase in vehicle sales in 2014 coming from an expected 18% increase in the passenger car segment and 32.0% rise in commercial vehicle (CV) sales. We expect growth to slow steadily in 2015 to 6.3% as higher base effects from a strong 2014 take hold.

Turkey Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Dec 31 2014
Sharp declines in commercial vehicle manufacturing weighed on total output in Turkey, despite sustained gains in passenger car manufacturing, resulting in vehicle output growth of just 1% y-o-y for the first eleven months of 2014, to 1,049,852 units. BMI maintains a bullish view on the country's autos exports outlook following an increase in vehicle exports in 11M14 of 5% y-o-y, to 802,872.

Date Published: Dec 31 2014
Total vehicle production in Ukraine was reported at 28,247 units in 11M14, a drop of 35.9% y-o-y. BMI expects a decrease in production over the remainder of 2014 and into 2015 as trade with Russia, Ukraine's largest export destination, is likely to be curtailed in the coming months on the back of ongoing political tensions. We retain a bearish view on the country's macro picture, which we expect this to deteriorate further.

Against this upbeat backdrop, BMI is happy to maintain its forecast of 10% growth in the UAE new vehicle sales market for 2014, with sales growth set to remain strong in 2015 as well.

Date Published: Dec 24 2014
No official 2014 sales data had been released by the Tunisian authorities as this report was being compiled in November 2014. A November 2014 report by the French language African Manager website would seem to indicate that sales for the month of October were up by 14.4% y-o-y. However, this is just one month's data and not enough to define a lasting trend in the local market.

Greece Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Dec 24 2014
BMI attributes growth in vehicle sales over the year-to-date to low base effects and pent-up demand in the market following years of sustained declines. We expect these dynamics to continue into 2015, despite our relatively sanguine outlook on the Greek economy.

Norway Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Dec 24 2014
BMI maintains a modest view on the Norwegian autos market. Growth is expected to come from the dominant passenger car segment, with electric vehicle subsidies and strong private consumption growth buoying the market. However, the commercial vehicle segment is expected to remain in negative growth during 2014, due to low government spending on infrastructure and the uncompetitive manufacturing sector.

In 2014, we forecast a 28.2% increase in vehicle sales in 2014 on the back of a recovery in the passenger car and commercial vehicle (CV) segments. BMI forecasts a 29.5% increase in passenger car sales in 2014, on the back of low base effects from substantial declines in 2013, and pent-up demand from several years of sustained declines in the market and delayed purchasing decisions.
