About This Statistic

The graph shows the number of cars exported from China until 2016, by car type. In 2009, around 217,000 commercial vehicles had been exported from China.

Automobile exports of China – additional information

As of 2013, China was the world’s largest car producing country. Around one fifth of the global passenger car production had been manufactured in China, exceeding the overall share of the European Union. First and foremost, car production in China is set to satisfy domestic car demand, as only about three percent of passenger cars manufactured in China had been destined for export markets in 2013, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM). The national vehicle demand has been steadily increasing over the past years, and with rising standards of living, a broadening middle class population and an ongoing trend of urbanization factoring into the equation, a growth burst in the near future is anticipated in the Chinese vehicle market.

On other national car markets, Chinese car brands enjoy a significant cost advantage over imported cars from international automobile manufacturers. Thus, other developing countries and emerging markets were the main export destinations for Chinese vehicle exports in 2013. Although exports of Chinese car brands had increased by 164 percent between 2009 and 2013, it is still a long way for China to become a car export powerhouse. Vehicles made in China have not posed a threat to Japanese or European auto makers since Chinese exports are concentrated in low-end market segments. From 2009 to 2013, export prices of Chinese passenger cars had largely remained unchanged.
