Research excerpt 

The structure of the car market

General trends in car production around the world show a decrease in production rates, however, the main manufacturing countries do not change the order of their positions in the ranking. Car production in 2020, compared to 2019, decreased by 15,4% with an indicator of 77 million cars. So, the leader among manufacturing countries in 2020 is China, which occupies a share of 32%, with a total turnover of more than 25 million cars. In second place is the United States with 11% and production close to 9 million, while India closes the top 10 leaders in car production in the world with 1,435 million, which is 2%.

How the car market has changed in 2021

The situation with the sale of cars on the world market differs from production trends. So, after a sharp decline in sales by almost 15% in 2020, due to the economic crisis against the background of the pandemic, 2021 is increasing the pace of sales. For the first half of 2021, car sales are already 12% higher than in 2020 and this figure is approaching the values ​​of 2019.

Prospects for the industry

Global production shutdowns in 2020 have disrupted supply chains. Many markets, including the UK and the EU, have returned to long periods of production lockdown. Even with the sharp cost cuts among original equipment manufacturers seen last year, and despite the encouraging vaccine rollout in the UK, Covid-related risks remain alarmingly high and the automotive industry is unlikely to see a recovery this 2021 or even next year. . 

However, according to experts, the pace of car sales in 2021 will be 2020% higher than in 9 and will continue to be at a stable level of growth of 4-5% over the next two years.

Countries such as China, which have recovered from the virus faster than their Western neighbors, will see supply and demand figures move back towards the East, where automakers with larger Chinese market share will reap even more profits from a relatively quick recovery after the first year. pandemic, through increasing the pace of production.
