The global automotive industry faced many challenges in 2011. From the supply-chain disruptions that followed the Japanese tsunami and the Thailand floods, to the second economic downturn across the United States in the summer and the unfolding European debt crisis, the industry was buffeted by uncertainty and volatility. Success in this industry requires a deep understanding of global market conditions and the ability to plan for, and mitigate, a variety of risks.
Please join us as we present our outlook for the industry. We will cover the global economic outlook and the main risks to growth. In the automotive markets, we will focus on key regions and market drivers, along with contingency forecasts for automotive sales and production. We will cover long-term industry trends in a variety of special IHS Automotive scenarios and discuss the latest developments in powertrain and OEM strategies.
