Global Automobile Industry Production and Demand-Regional Trend Assessment-Edition 2

Executive Summary

Global automobile industry is an important economic metric, it is on the cusp of new technological advancements. Additionally, in the present era, the automotive industry is being driven by consumer desire for expensive and distinctive features. Numerous factors, including the affordable availability of skilled labour, the strength of R&D facilities, and low-cost steel manufacturing, assist the automobile industry globally.

In 2020, numerous nations enacted absolute lockdown, which halted supply and development of chips and caused a global shortage. When a fire damaged a facility in Japan and a blizzard disrupted production in the US, manufacturers in both countries which together produce 50% of the semiconductor chips used in cars worldwide experienced a knock to supply. The paucity of semiconductor chips was made worse by the creation of the Delta version and subsequent COVID-19 breakouts throughout Southeast Asia and across the world

Across the world, around 79.1 million automobiles were produced in 2021, a 1.3% rise from 2020. In comparison to the year 2020, the global production of passenger cars increased by 2% in 2021. Whereas currently, the global automobile industry is headed toward a new trend that will see more electric and hybrid vehicles produced and sold in all regions. A major trend in the global automobile industry is the rise of innovative subscription-based vehicle usership (not ownership) models. In 2021, when used car sales are expected to soar, new car sales could be in jeopardy.

Worldwide electric car sales soared through 2021 and have continued to grow strongly so far in 2022, future growth will require greater initiatives to diversify battery manufacturing and essential mineral supplies to lower the risks of bottlenecks and price increases.

Global Economic Performance

The Global economy increased on an average at the rate of 3.4%, between 2014 to 2019. In 2020, owing to the outbreak of the virus, the global economy shrank by -3.3% the biggest reduction since 1970. Nevertheless, the economy experienced a 5.8% growth in 2021. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the uncertainty surrounding COVID, the deteriorating relationship between the US and China, and other factors have made the recovery still difficult. With projected GDP growth of 6.6% in 2022 and 6.3% in 2023, South Asia is expected to continue to outperform the world in GDP growth.

COVID-19 Impact: The COVID-19 restrictions that resulted in a double-digit decline in sales due to the suspension of vehicle production and sales worldwide also had a significant negative impact on the automotive industry. Later in 2020, the market was also negatively impacted by supply chain disruptions, which are anticipated to persist into 2021. However, the auto industry is recovering faster than expected, partly due to consumer trends favouring personal mobility over shared and public transit.

Impact of Russia Ukraine War: The ongoing Russian-Ukrainian situation has caused neon gas costs to increase tenfold, which may have an effect on Asia-Pacific automakers' ability to produce vehicles. In addition, the supply of palladium needed to make autos will be restricted by the sanctions placed on Russia. The production, sales, and delivery of autos are then expected to increase as a result.
