Over the five years to 2015, revenue for the SUV and Light Truck Manufacturing industry is expected to increase. Rising disposable incomes will bolster purchases of new automobiles. However, rising regulatory standards and volatile gasoline prices are anticipated to hamper industry growth. As a result of these trends, industry operators will increase their emphasis on producing more fuel-efficient vehicles, which will stimulate industry revenue growth. Furthermore, as the US economy improves, demand for the industry will increase, as the United States accounts a majority of its exports.
