EU car industry

This document aims to provide a picture of the EU car industry, in particular by looking at car production trends since 2000, at the number of enterprises and the turnover they generated in 2011, and at certain specific developments in the years 2008 to 2011.

We learn that the sector employs more than 2 million persons. In 2011, despite the recovery being reflected in a 5% increase in 2011 EU aggregate turnover relative to that of 2008, enterprises manufacturing parts and accessories for motor vehicles had returned to 2008 turnover levels in only 16 of 24 countries.

The characteristics of the EU car market are detailed through ratios of car sales and car ownership per household.Finally, world car production and sales and the trade balance of the car industry within and outside the EU are covered.
