The automotive industry is the largest manufacturing sector in the United States. It is truly a global industry with automakers from the United States, Europe, Japan and Korea producing cars and automotive parts for consumers around the world.
With so much activity taking place, this 2016 Top Markets Report provides U.S. auto parts suppliers with an assessment of opportunities and challenges, and can be used as a resource to help suppliers successfully export to various markets throughout the world. Separate models were developed to rank opportunities for original equipment (OE) parts and for aftermarket parts export markets through 2021.
Rankings are provided for a total of 30 markets, with detailed country case studies written about nine different markets. In addition, the report includes two snapshots regarding new automotive technologies and benefits from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Jeffrey Williams served as the lead author of this report. Todd Peterson, Liz Couch and Andy Parris all served as co-authors and contributed greatly to the completion of the report.
This report is part of the Top Markets Series. Each report ranks future export opportunities within a particular industry based on a sector-specific methodology.
