The automotive manufacturing industry comprises the production of trucks, passengers cars and motorcycles. The South American automotive manufacturing industry had total revenues of $43.6bn in 2015, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -6.9% between 2011 and 2015. Industry production volumes declined with a CARC of -7.6% between 2011 and 2015, to reach a total of 5.8 million units in 2015. According to MarketLine data, real Brazilian GDP has dropped from $2.4tn in 2014 to $2.3tn in 2015 (-3% decline), highlighting the crisis in the economy. This decline, combined with inflation pressures, is having a marked effect on the regional automotive industry both in terms of production and consumption as the population begins to avoid major purchases. The Brazilian industry has not only suffered from a fall in domestic demand due to a lack of consumer confidence and unwillingness to take on long-term debt, but also a drop in exports. Exports to Argentina in particular have suffered following high inflation and a growing fiscal deficit. Conversely, 81.7% of Argentinean car exports go to Brazil, pushing the car manufacturing segment into steep decline in Argentina.
