China Automotive Market growth
China's domestic automotive and truck market has grown over the last ten years to become the world's largest with annual demand expected to exceed 26 million units this year. However, for U.S. OEM's and Tier 1-3's the substance of this growth may be more important than just the scale. Two key trends strongly favor US automotive and component manufacturers in China. First, a market shift towards "Western" vehicle models such as crossovers and SUV's in which US and European design and quality is highly sought after. Second, an industrywide qualitative upshift where Chinese vehicle manufacturers are looking to Western manufacturers to participate in the domestic manufacturing tier system, similar to our own auto markets. This is considered by Chinese OEM's as the key driver to help make automotive exports the next wave of growth.
