HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. announces an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Automobile Industry Almanac, 2022 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 S&P Global Ratings forecast the global market at about 83 million units for 2021, after a very disappointing 77 million during 2020. In the U.S., the stock of new cars available through dealers was very low during 2020 and 2021, due to temporary COVID-related shutdowns of factories and a lack of critical components.
