Abstract:In this article, the most striking trends within the international automotive industry are outlined, as are their likely implications for the South African automotive industry. The article is divided into two parts. In the first part the major trends shaping the global motor vehicle industry are explored. In the second part the analysis of these trends is taken further by exploring their implications for the international automobile industry, as well as their likely positive and negative impacts on automotive assembly and component manufacturers in South Africa. A short conclusion draws together the major arguments and analytical issues raised. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
