Research and Markets: The Middle East and Africa Automotive Supplier Report

November 27, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “The Middle East and Africa Automotive Supplier Report” report to their offering.

This brand new report examines the developments and opportunities opening up to automotive manufacturing in the Middle East and Africa. Focusing on those countries in the region where vehicle and component production are most advanced – Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Morocco and South Africa – the report assesses the economic and investment landscapes for each with analysis of industry drivers, infrastructure developments, IHS country risk analysis, vehicle production volumes and supply chain growth.

Vehicle production is still nascent in the MEA region, and IHS estimates that in 2014 1.9 million vehicles were produced in the MEA region (excluding Iraq, for which no vehicle production data is available), an increase of 20.3% from the previous year. This is small when compared to the five vehicle-producing nations in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which is made up of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, which produced four million vehicles in 2014, with Thailand alone producing 1.9 million vehicles. In terms of market size, the five ASEAN countries together have a population of 534.7 million and the six MEA region countries a population of 321.1 million. This means that there is still plenty of upside for growth in the automotive industry in the MEA region.

The report examines the following:

– MEA Region Economies

– Investment Climate

– Utilities Supply and Infrastructure

– Vehicle Ownership

– Car Makers

– Vehicle Exports

– Investments in Automotive

– Supply Chain Growth

– Emissions and Vehicle Safety

Furthermore, the report includes detailed company profiles of 82 supplier companies in the region providing details on product portfolio, general strategy, joint ventures, investments, contracts, manufacturing footprint, financial overview (where available) and outlook.
