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.

Venezuela Autos Report Q1 2015

Venezuela Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

Vehicle sales in Venezuela declined 83.6% year-on-year (y-o-y), to 13,419 units, in the first nine months of
2014 as the increasingly poor economic outlook impacts the sector. BMI is bearish on Venezuela's private
consumption outlook, and we expect this to lead to a 95% drop in autos sales over the full year.
Vehicle production in Argentina declined 82.3% y-o-y in the first nine months of 2014, to 10,286 units, as
the domestic market contracts and the country's business environment deteriorates. BMI forecasts a 75%

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

Vehicle sales in Argentina declined 34.3% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the first nine months of 2014, to 472,044
units. BMI has become increasingly bearish on the outlook for the Argentine autos sector in 2014 on the
back of a devaluation of the peso in January, the likelihood of further weakness in the unit going forward, a
deteriorating macroeconomic environment, and new taxes on autos imports.
High inflation, slowing real wage growth, and increasing unemployment levels are likely to keep private

Cambodia and Laos Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

The common theme in Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos is that used vehicles make up the overwhelming
majority of their auto markets. The low GDP per capita of these economies makes it difficult for consumers
to afford new cars. However, as long as carmakers maintain their expectations, we do see an advantage for
firms to develop a toehold in these frontier markets.
Over our 2014-2020 period, we forecast GDP per capita to exceed 6.0% annual growth in all these

Central America Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: The outlook for the autos industry in the Central Americas region in 2014 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 very small in volumes
terms, and modest changes in sales figures could have a relatively large impact on the year-on-year (y-o-y)
growth rate.
Income distribution across much of the region is highly unequal, and the majority of headline spending

Cote d'Ivoire Autos Report Q1 2015

Cote d'Ivoire Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

According to Renault, total industry auto sales in Cote d'Ivoire rose 10.8% year-on-year (y-o-y) in
September 2014, to 667 units. This brought total vehicle sales for 9M14 to 5,539 units, an increase of 3.9%
y-o-y.
The recent slowdown in sales has prompted us to downgrade our 2014 forecast from 12.0% to 5.0%, which
will see sales reach 6,746 units at the end of the year.
Côte d'Ivoire has suffered from chronic underinvestment following years of conflict and civil war. Its poor

In 2013, vehicle sales in Germany declined 4% on the back of a 4.2% drop in the passenger car segment and
a 2.2% fall in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment. In 2014, we expect to see a return to growth in the
industry, with total vehicle sales forecasted to increase 2.8% over the year. This comes from an expected
2.0% increase in passenger car sales and a 10.5% increase in the CV segment.
In 2013, vehicle production in Germany increased 1.2% on the back of a 1.1% increase in the passenger car

Japan Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

We reiterate our pessimistic outlook for Japan's domestic auto sales, as the sales tax hike (from 5.0% to
8.0%) in April resulted in auto sales growth being negatively impacted, prompting us to downgrade our
2014 overall vehicle sales forecast to 2.9% from 3.6% previously. In August, Japan saw the largest decline
in auto sales since 2011, as the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) announced that auto
sales tumbled 9.1% year-on-year (y-o-y) to 333,471 units. The slowdown appears to be broad based, as

Mexico Autos Report Q1 2015

Mexico Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI forecasts 6.0% growth in vehicle sales in Mexico in 2014 on the back of a 6.4% increase in passenger
car sales and 5.3% growth in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment. In 2015, we project vehicle sales
accelerate to 8% spurred by an expansion of 6.5% and 10.8% in the passenger car and CV markets,
respectively.
A rebound in private consumption in H214, has helped passenger car sales in Mexico increase 3.8% yearon-
year (y-o-y) over the first nine months of 2014 to 520,484 units. We expect this broader uptick in car

New Zealand's new vehicle sales market continues to strengthen. Over 9M14, total of 66,789 new passenger
cars and sports utility vehicles (SUVs) were sold, plus a further 27,694 commercial vehicles (CVs), to
produce a total new vehicle sales market total of 94,559 units, according to figures from New Zealand's
Motor Industry Association (MIA). On current sales trends, this puts the country well on course to meet
BMI's target of 124,850 units for the full year.

Tanzania Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

We are revising our forecast for 2014 up to 80% due to new data availability. However, despite the latest
data from Renault indicating that sales of brand new Renault's increased 83% in the first nine months of
2014, BMI continues to predict steady growth (in the order of 3% a year) in new vehicle sales from 2015
onwards in Tanzania up to 2018. This owing to the markets erratic growth and low numbers of total sales.
Even with this growth, we believe that only 8,063 new vehicles will be sold in the country that year.

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

BMI has largely maintained its 2014 real GDP forecast at 5.1% and have upgraded its forecast for 2015 to
6.6%. Our country risk team believes this economic expansion in 2015 will continue to be supported by
rising private consumption growing by 5.3%, a relatively steady trade deficit, and positive investor
sentiment as East Africa's commercial hub leaves a multi-year economic downturn. As a result of this and

Botswana Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

BMI View: Due to the combination of monetary easing, historically low price pressures and a healthy
growth in consumer spending, BMI forecasts vehicle sales to grow by 3% in 2015. Total vehicle sales will
reach 36,580, with commercial vehicles being the best-performing market, growing at 8.5%, while the
passenger vehicle market recovers to 3.0%.
In 2015, we forecast that passenger vehicles will continue to be the worst-performing segment, although

Brazil Autos Report Q1 2015

Brazil Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

BMI forecasts a 0.5% drop in vehicle sales in 2015, as we expect the passenger car segment to drag down
total sales despite a very slowly recovering commercial vehicle (CV) segment.
We forecast a 1.9% decline in passenger car sales in 2015 with sales reaching 2.44mn units for the year.
This decline will come as growth in new passenger car purchases falls behind growth in consumer spending
due to car sales tax hikes weighing on demand.
In 2015, BMI expects to see 3.1% growth in light commercial vehicle (LCV) sales, a slowdown from strong

over 9M13, at 142,105 units. Heavy commercial vehicle (HCV) sales were also up by 1.7%, at 2,592 units.
However, it was light commercial vehicle (LCV) sales which showed the strongest growth over the Jan-Sep

Gabon Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

The new car market in Gabon will now contract in 2014, as an audit of government spending has resulted in
the cancellation of fleet orders. With SUVs and pick-up trucks accounting for the majority of new vehicle
sales in the country, we have revised our forecast for the passenger car and light commercial vehicle (LCV)
segments to a decline of 10% each in 2014. With the audit aimed at putting government finances in order,
however, we see this being ultimately beneficial to the autos market and still expect average annual growth
of 8% over 2015-18.

New vehicle sales in Q214 came in at 5,192 units, an increase of 28.0% year-on-year (y-o-y). This brought auto sales for H114 to 10,278 units, an increase of 43.3% y-o-y. We have been bullish on auto demand for some time and recent industry sales figures reinforce our view. As a result of the strong momentum in H114, we have upgraded our full-year sales forecast and now expect vehicle sales in 2014 to rise 20.0% to 19,074 units.

Sudan and South Sudan Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 5 2014
Our bearish view of the Sudanese auto market has been borne out by new historical data suggesting a 31.4% decline in sales in 2013 to just 2,400 units. This lower base has dragged on volumes for the rest of our forecast period, meaning the market will stand at just 4,300 units by 2018. Data published by Renault show sales for 9M14 up 14.4% y-o-y at 2,058, but this is coming from a very low base given the market's collapse in 2013.

The most recent data released by the Ugandan Motor Industry Association show that newly registered vehicles are down 13.4% year-on-year in the first five months of 2014. This has occurred despite an improving inflation and private consumption outlook, government commitment to improve 'productive infrastructure' and the development of Uganda's substantial oil reserves.
