Outlook for automobile production 2018 to 2023 (Million vehicles) AutofactsSource: Fuji Keizai Marketing Research and Consulting GroupSales of passenger/new vehiclesMarket environmentThe global automobile market sold at least 95 million vehicles in 2018, according to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers. The sales figure in China, the world’s largest market, accounted for around one third of the global total figure. Production volumes are expected to rise significantly in the next five years (see diagram below). While uncertainty surrounding Brexit as well as the trade conflict between the U.S. and China raise concern, demand in emerging economies with high growth potential, especially in India, ASEAN countries and Africa, is promising. Meanwhile, the automotive industry is said to be in the midst of a once-in-a-century period of transformation. Based on the key concept of CASE, (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electric), major automakers including Japanese and European car giants have announced a shift in direction towards becoming mobility providers, through which they are adopting related business models.InitiativesCustomers are facing wide-ranging issues in addition to the conventional competition in terms of production and sales. To adapt to the shift towards environmentally friendly plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs); electric vehicles (EVs); IT-based automotive control technologies; automatic driving technologies; connected cars; and ride sharing, they are revising their strategies for growth. We regard the changes in automobile production arising from this trend as business opportunities, and we are thus offering systems for diversification and labor saving in production and stepping up engineering for process planning. We will continue to offer a comprehensive package of solutions ranging from production planning to system supply to help customers increase their advantage. In this business, after-sales services such as upgrades and maintenance of existing facilities are also a key element, contributing at least 45% of segment sales. We will maintain our long-standing relationships of trust with customers to win repeated orders for a long time into the future. We will introduce facility charts for assets delivered worldwide in a bid to promote our preventive maintenance services to customers.2017(CY)(Million vehicles)20182020202220252035ExpectedForecasts from 2020 onward201920212023203030 20 100CanadaSouth KoreaEurope29Daifuku Report 2019Market forecast for 2035EV: 22 millionPHV: 11 millionHV: 7.8 millionWorld market for EV, PHV, and HVEVPHVHV
