Automobile Electronics Manufacturing in the US
The Automobile Electronics Manufacturing industry has exhibited strong performance during the period, with industry revenue expected to grow over the five years to 2018. Industry strength can be largely attributed to the robust growth of motor vehicle manufacturing and sales, the primary downstream market for industry products. Falling unemployment and increasing consumer spending have supported sales for key markets. Additionally, the low interest rate environment during the five-year period facilitated easier financing for items like car purchases. Imports from countries with low labor costs create significant competition due to relatively inexpensive shipping costs. Over the next five years, IBISWorld projects revenue to decline as new car sales began to taper off.
