Trends in China’s Automotive Component Manufacturing Industry
China's automotive components sector is set to achieve annual growth of 20 per cent for the next five years driven by demand for new cars and a growing secondary market. The aftermarket segment will become the main outlet for automotive parts as the average age of vehicles on the road continues to rise and the current total car population has already surpassed 100 million. The counterfeit auto parts market, already the world's largest with a current value of about US$40bn, will only increase as the overall market grows.
Opportunities And Challenges in China’s Automotive Industry
Chinese consumers are expected to play an increasingly important role in the development of the economy as China rebalances from an export driven to a domestic consumption driven model. As the growth of new passenger vehicle sales relative to past years slows, China is still expected to remain the world’s largest producer and consumer of automobiles. It will outperform both the European and US markets in the midterm with its projected high single digit growth. There is no doubt that the China Automotive market will continue to dominate the industry both here in Asia and worldwide.
In this Industry Report from Ipsos Business Consulting, we look at some of the opportunities and key challenges being faced in China.
