Deals driver provides a snapshot of the market forces driving merger and acquisition activity in the automotive industry.
As we embark on 2018, the automotive industry is in the midst of a rapid evolution. Disruption looms as the future demographics of the car buying public point to a decreasing love affair with the automobile. Sedans are out, SUVs are in and OEM profits are exceptionally strong for each of the ten major global manufacturers. Total revenue from the top 10 exceeded CDN $2.1 trillion in the last twelve months and cumulative EBITDA amounted to just over CDN $223 billion. Each of the top 10 OEMs was profitable last year. In a period of unprecedented change, our 2018 Global Automotive Executive Survey gives an interesting lens on the future of the automobile and its immediate environment.
