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.

Central America Autos Report Q4 2015

Central America Autos Report Q4 2015

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

BMI View: The outlook for the autos industry in the Central Americas region in 2015 is modest, with tepid
sales growth expected in some markets, but contractions likely in others. This is broadly in line with our
outlook for the Latin America region, although many markets in Central America are small in volume
terms, and modest changes in sales figures could have a relatively large impact on the year-on-year growth
rate.
Income distribution across much of the region is highly unequal, and the majority of headline spending

Denmark Autos Report Q4 2015

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

Danish new vehicle sales raced ahead over H115, against a backdrop of low interest rates and a recovering
economy. According to figures from the Danish Car Importers Association - De Danske Bilimportører
(DBI), new vehicle sales rose by 8.3% y-o-y, to 123,513 units. Given this strong start to the year, BMI
thinks the time is right to make a slight upward adjustment to our full-year forecasts. We are now targeting
7% sales growth for 2015, with commercial vehicles (CVs) set to outperform passenger cars (PCs),

Ecuador Autos Report Q4 2015

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

The import restrictions in place will have a considerable effect on Ecuador's vehicle sales and production
over 2015. BMI forecasts vehicle sales to fall 23.1% over the year and for vehicle production to decline by
18.0%.
This decline is primarily on the back of Ecuador announcing a series of measures aimed at curbing autos
imports in an effort to protect local producers from import price effects of devaluation and the strong
depreciations in the currencies of Ecuador's key trade partners in the Andean and Latin American regions.

Sales figures for H115from Finland's Automotive Information Centre (Autoalan Tiedotuskeskus - AT) bear
out BMI's pessimism towards the local autos sales market.
Finnish new vehicle sales were down by 2.7% y-o-y during H115, at 64,454 units. Breaking down the
headline figure, passenger car sales stood at 57,085 units, down by 3.5% y-o-y, while light commercial
vehicle (LCV) sales were up by 7.8% y-o-y, at 5,824 units. Heavy commercial vehicle (HCV) sales were up

France Autos Report Q4 2015

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

In 2015 and 2016, we forecast a 5.1% and 3.1% increase in vehicle sales as resurgent growth in the
passenger car market compensates for low volumes across the commercial vehicle (CV) segment. Indeed,
this forecast is reflective of a broader story emerging throughout the French economy whereby consumer
spending and retail-oriented industries, such as the passenger car market, have shown a sustained uptick
helped by a cyclical uptick in the economy.
On the enterprise side, productive investments by businesses still remain minimal, which is dragging down

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

In 2015 and 2016, we expect to see further growth in vehicle sales in Germany, forecasting 5.3% and 4.7%
growth, respectively. We project that 0.8% and 0.6% declines in heavy truck sales over the two years will
be far outweighed by 5.3% and 4.0% expansion in the passenger car segment, an 8.0% and 3.4% increase in
light commercial vehicle (LCV) sales and a 4.2% and 2.0% growth in the coach and bus segment.
Passenger car sales will provide the strongest boost to overall vehicle sales in terms of volume. In 2015 and

Indonesia Autos Report Q4 2015

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

Indonesian auto sales have entered into a tailspin over the past few months, with their decline exacerbated
by the hike in fuel prices in November 2014. We are now pushing back our expectations of a recovery until
2016 and are reversing our growth forecasts for 2015 as we see demand conditions remaining soft in the
coming months. We forecast vehicle sales to decline 6.6% in 2015 revised down from our previous forecast
of 4.3% growth.

Argentina Autos Report Q4 2015

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

BMI remains bearish on the outlook for the Argentine autos sector in 2015 and we forecast of an 8.0%
decline in vehicle sales for the year. Following the 36.3% fall in vehicle sales in 2014, we believe further
drags on sales will be generated by rampant inflation, falling consumer and business spending and the
expiry of the government's subsidised car purchasing scheme. Ongoing currency controls and weakness in
the Argentine peso in the country will also continue to push up vehicle prices in 2015, dragging on vehicle

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

BMI forecasts an 18.1% growth in vehicle sales in Mexico in 2015 on the back of 20.6% increase in
passenger car sales and 13.8% growth in the commercial vehicle segment. We also forecast production
growth to reach 6.4% over 2015 and 6.5% in 2016 spurred on by growth in all vehicle sub-segments.
Household spending has continued to grow in recent quarters, indicating that private consumption has fully
recovered from the shock effect of tax rises in early 2014. Consumer confidence and purchasing power will

months of 2015, there were a total of 670,735 new vehicles sold in Australia, representing a 3.2% increase
y-o-y. Looking specifically at July's figures, sports utility vehicles (SUVs) showed a 13.4% annual increase

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

With Pakistan registering strong vehicle sales growth in FY2014/15, we expect demand momentum to
extend into FY2015/16, and forecast sales growth of 17.1%. The positive outlook is underpinned by
favourable monetary conditions, which will help to lower credit costs for potential car buyers, while the
government's taxi scheme will also continue to spur demand momentum over the coming quarters.

Belgium Autos Report Q4 2015

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

Belgium has historically been a significant production hub for the European market. However, falling car
sales across Europe, coupled with the availability of cheaper production sites in Eastern Europe, mean that
global automakers (such as GM and Ford) have looked to shut their more expensive Belgian production
facilities in recent years.
However, over the past quarter, there was some good news for the Belgian production sector. In April 2015,

Date Published: Aug 26 2015

In 2015, sales and production of vehicles in Venezuela will improve slightly compared to their weak 2014
amounts but volumes will remain far below their pre-2013 levels. Production will remain stymied by
bottlenecks in the supply of imported components owing to the restrictions on currency exchange in the
country. These currency restrictions will also hold back sales volumes owing to dealers' inability to address
the shortfall in production by ramping up imports.

Due to Brazil's worsening macroeconomic outlook, BMI forecasts a 24.1% drop in vehicle sales in 2015
followed by weak 1.4% growth in 2016, as declines in the passenger car segment are outpaced by stronger
declines in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment.
We forecast a 22.8% decline in passenger car sales in 2015 with sales reaching below 2.16mn units for the
year. Rising borrowing costs and increased vehicle prices will provide added drag to the passenger car

Date Published: Aug 19 2015
We forecast sales in both the passenger car segment and commercial vehicle segment to fall by 10.0% and 7.1%, respectively, in 2015, which will see the overall auto market contract by 9.5%. Our bearish outlook is predicated on a weak economy, exacerbated by a tax hike on mini cars and a continued erosion of consumer purchasing power, as wage growth fails to keep up with the rise in domestic prices. This will in turn see total vehicle production decline 5.0% in 2015 as a weak domestic market leads to cutbacks in output.
