China Korea and India lead in car sale growth

Turn clock to to  three  decades ago –  the automotive industry was a very different one. The worldwide production that barely exceeded  30 million cars across the globe in 1980, the automotive industry was then dominated by the US,Japan and the European quartet consisting of Germany,France,Italy and  the UK.  True, Brazil was a significant  carmarker, as ware Belgium and Canada,but they were making  cars that ware branded Chevrolet,Ford,Opel,Renault,VW and so on-brands that ware headquartered either in the US or Euorpe; multinational car makers making cars in countries that ware part of certain free trade blocs. And other than brands like Alfa Romeo, BMW,Cadillac, Chevrolet,,Citroen. Fiat,Jaguar,Land Rover,MG,Mercedes-Benz,Peugeot,Renault or VW, there were aslo(long-forgotten) brands called Austin, Morris,Reliant,Rover,Talbot,Triumph, TVR,Vanden Plas and more.

In 1980 India produced a grand total of 30,538 cars. Most were either Hindustan Ambassadors or Premier Padminis. Even South Korea had made all of 55,000cars, that years-their fledgling auto industry was not even a decade-and-a-half old. and car production in China was virtually nonexistent .Japen had just over-taken the US in the numbers of cars made that year,and both were ahead of Germany or France,the two countries that were next in the rankings.

A decade later,in 1990, wordwide car production had gone up to a little above 35 million.The four biggest car-making nations had forged ahead,as had India,producing176,015 cars, of which more than half were made by Maruti. HM and PAL were still around, though. South Korean car production had surged ahead to 986,751,but China was still to join the

list of car-making nations. By2000, global production had topped 41 million,South Korea had made over 2.6 million cars,India as many as 517,957. PAL Was history. And China and made some 605,000 cars.
By 2009,When global production was at 48 million and India and South Korea had mad 2.17 million and 3.16 million cars respectively, China and made over 10.4 million! And now there are a whole host of new brands such as Brilliance, BYD, Chery, Dongfeng, Geely,and even MG out of China. Yes, times have indeed changed.
