Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Motor vehicle manufacturers have been completely defeated by import competition over the past five years. Production volumes have plummeted as consumer demand shifts away from locally manufactured vehicles due to the greater fuel efficiency of many imported vehicles. Importers have benefited from a high Australian dollar and tariff reductions. A decline in new car sales in 2009-10 as the global financial crisis continued was reversed over the past five years, but the subsequent growth was all in imported vehicle sales.
