Historically, automakers have been the main drivers of demand for the Automobile Interior Manufacturing industry. Following the economic recovery, demand for automobiles increased, prompting automakers to ramp up production. As a result, upstream suppliers, such as automobile interior manufacturers, experienced heightened demand. In the coming years, the automotive sector is expected to further globalize as industry operators expand in emerging economies to take advantage of more affordable labor costs. Furthermore, growth in worldwide manufacturing activity and ongoing appreciation of the US dollar is anticipated to fuel sales from foreign markets.
