Economic focus: US auto sector to weigh on manufacturing

Economic focus: US auto sector to weigh on manufacturing

Report summary

The US automotive sector has enjoyed strong growth in the past five years, but a plateau has been reached. Passenger vehicle demand is unlikely to increase further, while production will likely decline, dragged lower by excess inventories and migration of assembly lines. This will weigh on total US manufacturing, which has been supported by the auto sector.
