Motor industry contribution to the economy of the United Kingdom (UK) 2009-2018 In 2018, the United Kingdom motor industry contributed 18.6 billion British pounds to the economy. It was the second year in a row that industry revenue declined, with 2016 being the peak year when contributions amounted to 22 billion British pounds. The country’s gross domestic product stood at 2.11 trillion British pounds in 2018.

Enterprises in the UK

The UK was home to 3,255 enterprises working in motor vehicle, trailer and semi-trailer manufacturing. However, of these only a little over ten percent had an annual turnover exceeding five million British pounds. The number of these profitable companies grew between 2013 and 2018.

Largest economic sectors

The greatest economic sector in terms of contribution to GDP was services. Service industries accounted for 70.56 percent of total GDP in 2017, while manufacturing only accounted for 17.93 percent. This marked a decline of roughly 1.4 percent for manufacturing compared to ten years prior.
