Next gear: Renewed consumer spending and a move toward green vehicles will drive growth
Car & Automobile Manufacturing in the US
Full speed ahead
The lingering effects of the recession have significantly altered the state of the Car and Automobile Manufacturing industry over the five years to 2012. At the onset of the turmoil in 2008, automakers had already been enduring crashing consumer demand for new vehicles. Things took a turn for the worse in 2009, though, as US vehicle sales fell to historic lows and industry revenue plummeted. The future of the industry over the next five years is much brighter. Industry profit margins will be relatively healthy in 2012 as companies benefit from a combination of operational efficiency at manufacturing plants
enacted in 2009 and rising vehicle sales. Moving forward, automakers will focus production on smaller, lighter and more fuel-efficient vehicles to become more competitive in the wake of rising gas prices. Shifting consumer preferences, along with a general recovery in the demand for vehicles, will grow revenue by 2017.
