Revving up: Improving car sales will support demand, but alternate engines will stifle growth

Revenue for the Automobile Engine and Parts Manufacturing industry is expected to trend higher over the five years to 2017. Bolstered by improvements in the economy, the automotive sector is recovering from a postcollapse base. Engine efficiency has been a key topic of innovation throughout the automotive sector, fueled by changing consumer preferences and looming legislative standards. Generally, consumers have shifted from light trucks and SUVs to more compact, fuel-efficient cars. Over the five years to 2022, higher governmental standards and growing gas prices are forecast to diminish revenue growth, but gas engines will remain more.

  • Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

    Automobile engine and engine parts manufacturing facilities are mainly clustered in the Great Lakes, Southeast and West regions. Most automotive supply industries set up close to automotive assembly facilities – assembly plants are also clustered in these three regions. For engine manufacturers, this pattern is even more direct as the largest industry players are the automakers themselves. The Big Three domestic automakers (General Motors, Ford and Chrysler) produce most of their engines and vehicles in the Great Lakes region. Consequently, IBISWorld estimates that the Great Lakes region will account for 27.1% of industry establishments in 2017.The Southeast and West regions are primarily the domains of foreign-owned automakers.
