The Dramatic Internationalization of the Locations of Worldwide Automobile Production – New Report

Dramatic shifts in market shares of individual countries have been determining the worldwide automobile production since 2000 reveals the Quest Trend Magazine

Online PR News – 24-September-2014 – Bochum, Germany – The report analyses the period from 2000 to 2013 using the data from the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d`Automobile, Paris, having been recently published for the year 2013.

The whole drama is expressed in these numbers: In 2000 the five countries USA, Japan, Germany, France and Spain produced still almost 60% of the worldwide automobiles, the three countries Brazil, China and India, however, only scarcely 8%. 13 years later both world market shares have been almost identical.

In this time the market shares of the USA, Japan, Germany, France and Spain at the worldwide automobile production dropped to 34.7% while the market shares of Brazil, China and India bounced up to 34.1%.

So now almost as many cars roll from the assembly belts in Brazil, China and India as together in the USA, Japan, Germany, France and Spain.

China imposed rank 7 of the world rank list in 2000 and catapulted itself on rank 1 by 2013. In China more automobiles are now produced than together in the USA and Japan.

The driving force of this development is the internationalization of production. It became the new main strategy of the 10 largest automakers at the end of the nineties. The term „globalization“, though often used, is misleading in this context. Globalization already originated in the 15th century with the first world realm of mankind history under the Spanish king Philipp II.

The report contains the ranking of the altogether 10 largest automobile countries in comparison of the years 2000 and 2013.

One further report in the Quest Trend Magazine shows the development of the market shares of the 10 largest car manufacturers in China in comparison of the last 12 years.

The Quest Trend Magazine publishes beyond that how market shares of the 10 largest car manufacturers in the 10 largest automobile countries changed in the years from 2000 to 2012. The numbers for 2013 are expected in October 2014.
