Global Automotive Industry Overview

The auto industry has a large network of organizations and companies, which are focused on all of these – manufacturing, developing, innovations, supplying, distributing and many other operation groups you can imagine. Being so vast and intensively advancing, the automotive industry is a large scale to handle and get educated quickly. It is a leading driver of global economic growth.

No matter what type of reader you are – just an admirer of automobiles and luxury vehicles, or a serious player in the vehicle sector, there are many facts, data and information you need to learn and then follow. Indeed, all the data and facts aren’t actually constant, but dynamically changed through the years and even day by day.

Global motor vehicle sales reached about 85 million units in 2013, an increase of 4% compared to 2012, according to the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA). Among all the industry's categories of vehicle, passenger cars were the largest segment, contributing 63 million units in 2013; commercial vehicle sales were 22 million units in 2013, according to OICA. The Automotive Parts and Supplies Industry (including the automotive aftermarket industry) is also an important part of the global automotive area.
