Car & Automobile Manufacturing in the US
The Car and Automobile Manufacturing industry endured weak sales during the recession but has since recovered during the current five years due to rising consumer confidence and low interest rates. In addition, more Americans returned to work and consumer sentiment began to recover, making customers more likely to purchase big-ticket items, such as new vehicles. Over the next five years, strengthening economic conditions and returning consumer confidence will continue to fuel the industry, albeit at a slower rate. Automakers will also seek growth potential in the hybrid and fuel-efficient car market as they focus on developing gas-electric hybrid vehicles to increase fuel efficiency and cut exhaust emissions.
Companies in this industry manufacture cars and automobile chassis. These operators, which are referred to as automakers, typically produce cars, including electric cars, in assembly plants. The manufacturing of light trucks (e.g. vans, pickups and SUVs), heavy trucks and motorcycles is excluded from this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
