Statista overview report on the automotive industry worldwide

Global automotive industry: financial insights

In an effort to reign in a service-centered, sustainable, and autonomous future, the auto industry found itself in front of seemingly insurmountable challenges even before the coronavirus pandemic made the imperative to act more apparent.

The need to innovate puts pressure on the entire industry, but especially on companies with a focus on conventional vehicles and a presence in traditionally strong automotive markets.

This report aims to assess the financial health of the auto industry, providing answers to key questions, including: What do the key performance figures tell us about the state of the industry? Who seems best equipped to steer through the crisis unscathed? What is the regional impact on performance? The demanding challenges associated with the necessary structural changes can only be tackled through a focus on alternative business models and propulsion technologies.
