Complete Guide to the Automobile Industry From Plunkett Research 2017

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Automobile Industry Almanac, 2017 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

The automobile industry surged ahead worldwide in recent years, with particularly sharp growth in the U.S. and China.  Analysts at IHS Automotive forecast the global market at 88.12 million units for 2016. However, the combination of car sharing strategies, like ZipCar, ride sharing systems like Uber, and autonomous vehicles capable of driving themselves will have very profound effects on automobile manufacturing, usage, sales and ownership patterns.  At least in dense urban environments, the result is very likely to be a large proportion of individuals who opt to use shared vehicles rather than user-owned cars.
