REPORT SNAPSHOT

Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Automobile Body and Trailer Manufacturing industry in China developed rapidly in the past five years due to strong growth in automobile manufacturing (IBISWorld industry reports 3721 and 3721a) and road infrastructure (4726) in China. Industry revenue is estimated at $21 billion in 2017, up 13.5% for the year, with annualized growth of 12.9% in the five years through 2017.

Exports account for an estimated 22% of industry revenue in 2017, down from 27.9% in 2012. The two reasons for the decline are reduced foreign demand since the global recession and very high and growing domestic demand. Imports are expected to total $220.3 million in 2017, up 12% from 2016, mainly due to continuously increasing domestic demand for high-end industry products...

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The industry has a high capital intensity level. Although production tends to rely on large-scale investment in capital equipment, particularly for large firms, there is still a heavy reliance on labor inputs. Larger firms tend to be more technologically advanced than smaller companies.

For each dollar spent on labor, about 75 cents are invested in capital. However, the low cost of labor in China understates the level of labor inputs and distorts the ratio in favor of capital.

The capital to labor ratio is expected to rise in future years as domestic manufacturers increase their research and development activities and invest more in manufacturing technology and equipment.
