LONDON, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
The Chinese Automotive Supplier Report
The Chinese Automotive Supplier Report looks at the economics of the automotive industry in China, particularly relating to the supply base. It provides an overview of the macroeconomic environment including vehicle sales, production, imports and exports. In addition, the report looks at OEMs' activity, relations with the supply base. This research utilises IHS Automotive's Light-Vehicle Production Forecasts; the industry standard for automotive forecasting and analysis.
The report also includes an appendix of 213 supplier profiles from China-based suppliers or the Chinese operations of global suppliers. These profiles provide you with relevant data on corporate strategy, investments, product offerings and contact information all built from SupplierBusiness research. Certain profiles also map out relevant automotive manufacturing and R&D locations for the supplier.
Background to this report
The Chinese car market experienced one of the most accelerated expansions ever recorded in the history of the automotive industry, having achieved a six-fold growth over the last decade. In 2002, about 3.3 million cars and light commercial vehicles were sold in China, while in 2012 this figure rose to about 19 million units. Much of this growth is concentrated in the two-year period from 2009 to 2010; two stellar years for the market, as it effectively doubled from levels of eight million in 2008 to over 17 million in 2011 driven by various stimuli. China has emerged as the world's largest car market as a result of this tumultuous two years of new record sales, surpassing the US market, which at the time had just undergone one of the major setbacks in its history.
