Feb 17, 2011, 09:00 ET
HONG KONG, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ - Today, www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com released its industry report highlighting Japan automakers Honda Motor Company, Ltd. (NYSE: HMC) and Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM). Investors from around the world are invited to view fundamental and technical analysis at www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com.
The recent economic situation has served as a driving force to effect sweeping changes within the auto industry: (1) massive restructuring of industry - not only in highly publicized bankruptcy courts - but also with lesser known motions effecting 'pre-emptive changes' within solvent corporations; (2) new opportunities for growth over the coming decade resultant from new landscape of leveraging existing operations to expand emerging markets.
Several staples of market are projected to continue including high barriers of entry, namely traditional economies of scale within operations, supply chain and marketing. As a result, the major auto markets of China, India, Japan, Korea, Western Europe and the U.S. are expected to maintain market dominance well into 2020.
Only 10 global automakers account for over 77% of the production worldwide. The top producer, Toyota Motor Corporation holds 11.96% market share, followed by General Motors and Volkswagen at 10.68% and 10.03% respectively. The remaining top producers are as follows: Ford Motor Company (7.74%), Hyundai (7.68%), PSA (5.03%), Honda (4.98%), Nissan (4.54%), Fiat (4.07%), and Suzuki (3.95%).
To remain competitive in this new landscape, automakers will need to both recognize the changing requirements of Mature Market consumers - meanwhile targeting growth within the Emerging Market. Strong economic growth and fast-paced improvements to infrastructure act as catalysts for Emerging Market consumer growth. Those automakers effectively leveraging current Mature Market operations to make Emerging Market investments will set the stage for growth over the next decade.
Among the Japan automakers, Toyota Motors Corp. (NYSE: TM) holds 11.96% of the auto market, Honda Motor Company (NYSE: HMC) 4.98%. To view fundamental and technical analysis on these two industry leaders we encourage investors to visit: www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com
