Factors that make HKMC the #4 Competitor in the Automotive Industry

Since 2001, HYUNDAI-KIA Motor Company (HKMC) has shown tremendous growth in performance across the global market. Whilst the traditional automakers were showing signs of trouble during the economic crisis of 2008, HKMC has shown an incredible growth trend not only with the HYUNDAI brand, but also the KIA brand. The main drivers behind the success of the company's growth is based on reasonably priced vehicles, improved product quality year-over-year, constant introduction of new vehicles to the market, targeted product portfolios for the different global customer groups, and improved feature attributes that meet the demands and desires of the customer groups across the globe.


•Between 2001 and 2011, HKMC increased its sales performance by X%—from X million unit sales to X million in 2011.
•As a result, HYUNDAI-KIA Motor Company is the fourth largest automobile manufacturer today—reasonably priced vehicles, with high quality, and features that meet customer needs/demands during tough economic conditions have aided the company in achieving this position.
•Nonetheless, the company is striving further to improve its current market position and bring its corporate image one step higher, proving itself to be a formidable competitor in the automotive industry.
