Automotive Component IndustrySpecial Focus on U.S. Market
IntroductionWhat is Automotive Component?
What is Automotive Component?Automotive parts are defined as either Original Equipment (OE), or aftermarket parts.OE parts that are used in the assembly of a new motor vehicle or are purchased by the manufacturer. Suppliers of OE parts are broken into three levels.
Tier 1" suppliers who sell finished components directly to the vehicle manufacturer. Tier 2" suppliers who sell parts and materials for the finished components to the Tier 1 suppliers. Tier 3" suppliers who supply raw materials to any of the above suppliers or directly to vehicle assemblers. There is often overlap between the tiers. OE production accounts for an estimated 2/3 to 3/4of the total automotive parts production.
Aftermarket parts are divided into two categories:
Replacement parts: Parts are built or remanufactured to replace OE parts when damaged. Accessories: are parts made for comfort, convenience, performance, safety, or customization, and are designed for add-on after the original sale.

Conclusion Global automobile & component industry group value generates 30.60% of auto component, in which U.S. and then Europe is the major contributor to this industry group revenue. General Motor is the major player to this industry group.
The U.S. Import/ Export chart shows that U.S exports are increasing year by year where there was an increase of 6.9% in exports from the year 2005 to 2006 with the value of $ 58.9 million in 2006.
As similar to exports imports also grew by 3.3% from the year 2005 to 2006 with the value $ 95.2 million in 2006. This shows that the inflow of automotive components is more as compare to outflow which takes us to the conclusion of trade deficit.
U.S. trade deficit is a big opportunity for India to avail in automotive component sector. China is a major competitor or we can say threat for India who contributes 7% in U.S. import but now this threat can be overcome, fact says that increasing wages and new environmental regulations are pushing up the cost of manufacturing in China.
