Global Automotive Supplier Study 2010

September 11, 2012

Driven by booming car sales, the global automotive supplier industry achieved record profitability in 2010 (6.2% EBIT margin on global average). However, financial performance of suppliers differs heavily depending on headquarter region, company size and product focus:

  • European suppliers achieved an EBIT margin of almost 7%, while North American and Japanese suppliers remain below global average.
  • Small and medium-sized suppliers have significantly improved their profitability compared to precrisis levels
  • Chassis focused suppliers achieved the highest profitability, while Interior and Electric suppliers remain below average

The revenue outlooks for 2011 full-year and for 2012 are relatively stable. Also profitability is expected to stay at a reasonable level, but drop below 6% EBIT margin on a global average.
