The company operates in North and South America, Europe, the Asia Pacific region, and Africa. Recent statistics show that the North American segment remains by far the most profitable, with over three million units sold in the region in 2013 - more than double the number of vehicles sold that year in Europe, the next-biggest market. Although the Ford Focus was one of the best-selling cars in the world in 2015, the stiff competition Ford faces from manufacturers such as General Motors, Toyota, and Honda has slowly decreased Ford’s global market share since 2000.
Ford’s subsidiaries include the Lincoln Motor Company as well as its own Ford Motor Credit Company, which helps provide financing, leasing, and insurance to and through its dealers. Ford Credit helps facilitate the purchase of new and used vehicles by retail customers, rental companies, and government entities, along with making it possible for dealerships to improve their facilities. The financial sector of Ford generated almost nine billion U.S. dollars of the around 150 billion dollars of revenue that the Ford Motor Company earned in 2015.
