The Motor Vehicle Manufacturing industry endured a bumpy ride during the worst of the economic downturn, although industry conditions have since accelerated. Consumer and business confidence plummeted during the economic downturn, causing industry revenue to collapse in 2009-10. Conditions have since improved, with production rising significantly in 2010-11 and then continuing to grow strongly over the past five years. A number of manufacturers have had considerable success exporting cars to developing countries. For example, the industry's most dominant operator, Jaguar Land Rover, has grown at a remarkable rate over the past five years through the use of this strategy.
Companies in this industry manufacture and assemble motor vehicles. Motor vehicles include passenger cars and commercial vehicles, such as lorries. They also include buses and special-purpose vehicles like snowmobiles and fire engines. Businesses also make motor vehicle engines and vehicle chassis.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
