China Automotive Industry
About this product:
China is set to become the world’s second largest new automobile growth market by the end of 2006 and this growth is spurring demand for U.S. automotive parts, services, and aftercare products. The East China region in particular has tremendous opportunities as new car drivers become more sophisticated and demand better vehicle quality and better repair and maintenance service. U.S. exporters should be aware that while industry revenue is increasing, profit margins are slowly falling to international averages. Infringement of intellectual property remains a very serious issue.
