Summary of Automotive

Increasing disposable incomes of people in the Asia-Pacific region are playing a significant role in boosting the growth of the automotive market. Increasing incomes are leading to an increase in demand for personal transportation. In many countries in the region– owning a car is seen as a status symbol and a way to improve mobility and access to employment and education opportunities. This has led to an increase in demand for cars, SUVs and other types of personal transportation vehicles. For example – in China: – the number of cars on the road has been increasing rapidly and is expected to continue to do so in the coming years.

Rising incomes are also enabling people in the region to purchase more expensive vehicles with advanced features and technologies, such as electric and hybrid vehicles. Governments in the region are offering incentives and regulations to encourage the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles, which is helping to spur demand for these products. For example – in Japan: – the government has been offering tax incentives and other incentives to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles.

Based on our estimates, we can say that Asia Pacific’s regional Automotive industry is forecasted to be a $2973.69 billion industry in 2029 from $1839.6 billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 8.21%.

Many of the countries in the region – including China and India – make up some of the fastest-growing nations in terms of population size. Taking its increasing population into consideration, it comes as no surprise that Asian economies and industries are evolving constantly. One such industry is the automotive industry. Increased population produces increased demand for effective mobility. The region has a reputation as being home to some of the world’s most valuable vehicle manufacturers.

Recent Trends and Insights

Production in Southeast Asian nations is rebounding from pandemic lows. Thailand especially sees growth led by Toyota and Isuzu plants manufacturing for domestic and export markets.

Hydrogen fuel cell technologies are gaining traction in Japan, South Korea, China and Australia with pilot fleets and initial refueling networks in major cities. Further scaling up remains dependent on cost reductions.

Shared mobility continues expanding rapidly across major Asia-Pacific cities. Ride-hailing giant Grab also operates in food/grocery delivery and digital payments in Southeast Asia. EV sales in China grew by over 150% in 2021 to around 3.5 million units, accounting for over half of the global EV market. Subsidies and regulations continue driving adoption higher.

The shift toward renewable energy has been positively influenced by this strong and growing independent voice within government, which provides the impetus for political parties and incumbents to act effectively. Mills is assured that corporate Australia is also starting to see a drive towards sustainability.
