Oxford Economics provides clients interested in the automotive sector with reliable data and forecasts for key economic drivers, sector-based trend analysis, topical studies, customised reports, and analytical forecasting and scenario tools, to better understand the automotive sector and trends up and down the value and supply chain. All to enable a better understanding of opportunities and risks and help inform timely and effective decision-making.

How we can help

Oxford Economics has developed a globally integrated research and forecasting approach that allows us to not only forecast relevant trends within the automotive sector by country and region, but also quantify risks and developments relevant to the automotive industry. These range from the key macro and consumer trends, forecasting all sectors within the value chain, key supply chain linkages, global trade flows, the impact of commodity prices and the overall analysis of sector risks.

Use Oxford Economics’ forecast data and scenarios to project performance and income generation under different economic and regulatory environments.
