LMC Global Light Vehicle Outlook Briefing

Wednesday, 30th Nov 2022 at 14:00


The global economic backdrop for autos has weakened as the year has progressed. Inflation has a grip on most economies around the world and central bank actions are increasing. Disruption is multi-layered and started with the pandemic, continued with a broken supply chain, labor shortages, logistics delays and war in Ukraine. Risk for further pressure on vehicle demand is high. Supply constraints remain the dominant force behind weakness in sales, creating a unique environment in which supply is controlling the level of demand. But how long will this persist?
