The US automotive market is bouncing back but faces further constraints in the supply chain, while OEMs are investing in an increasingly diverse powertrain and model mix. AutoForecast Solutions’s Joe McCabe analyses the risks and opportunities.
The North American automotive industry continues to lose vehicle production in the face of the semiconductor shortage, which is reducing output even as new and used vehicle demand continues to rise. Carmakers and their suppliers are reprioritising production and accelerating output wherever they can to gain back lost volume. Cooperation will be key across the supply chain both to get production back on track, as well as to manage rising electrification.
AutoForecast Solutions’s Joe McCabe provides the latest forecasts for North American new vehicle demand and production, assessing the outlook for electrification across the region, and analyses OEMs’ global platform production strategies.
