Are the “Asian Four” –Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Hyundai Gaining Market Share?
Posted Thursday, Apr 23, 2009 by
It could very well be that Asian automakers will see an increase in their share of North American vehicle output as America slowly recovers from the recession.
When U.S. production picks up pace, the automakers in Detroit may only have a market share of 45 percent. Of course, anyone can ague the numbers up or down the scale, but few people will disagree that the “Asian Four”-Honda, Toyota, Nissan or Hyundai aren’t in the lead for designing vehicles that are dependable and fuel efficient.
You can also expect the American automotive industry to move away from the production of large, full-sized pickups and SUV’s to smaller gas-saving vehicles.
It’s no small mystery that global vehicle production has slipped since last year, or that the trend is likely to continue throughout the year. From an economic standpoint, there are a lot of industries that are affected by a down-turn in auto production, and these include the steel industry, tire manufacturing industry and auto parts suppliers.
The upside is that people are holding on to their vehicles a lot longer-and this means that a lot of automotive maintenance scheduling is on the horizon. The one thing you can always count on is that vehicles will continue to need qualified auto mechanics that can get the job done.
And if you’re a guy or gal that likes getting lost under the hood of a car, working as a qualified and skilled auto mechanic is where your talents can rise to the occasion.
