The European Automotive Supplier Report

Publication Date: 29/10/2015
Number of Pages: 1930

The European Automotive Supplier Report looks at the economics of the automotive industry in Europe, particularly relating to the supply base. It provides an overview of the macroeconomic environment including vehicle sales, production, imports and exports. In addition, the report looks at OEMs' activity, relations with the supply base. This research utilises IHS Automotive’s Light-Vehicle Production Forecasts; the industry standard for automotive forecasting and analysis.

The report also includes an appendix of 176 supplier profiles from Europe-based suppliers (including every one of the top 50 European suppliers), or the European operations of global suppliers. These profiles provide you with relevant data on corporate strategy, investments, product offerings and contact information all built from original research

Background to this Research

The European automotive supply base is a key industrial sector in Europe with five million people employed at component manufacturers and a major contributor to European innovation. The sector is often subject to criticism from the advocates of a rationalization of the automotive industry in Europe since it has not undergone the same structural overhaul of the business which has been witnessed in the North America supplier industry over the last four years. A sudden excess capacity in North America has resulted in the implementation of a number of drastic measures in order to downsize local operations and return to profitability. Despite facing somewhat similar issues to their North American counterparts, European suppliers have yet to implement these strategic and painful changes to a meaningful extent, thus ensuring long-term sustainability of the business. Part of this delay is linked to the OEMs’ inertia in tackling their own regional overcapacities which are creating significant burdens for their finances.
