  • Abstract Abstract
    This report provides an overview of the Mexican automotive market. In particular, it analyzes the 11main OEMs active in Mexico and 40 of the largest Tier 1 & 2 suppliers. It also analyzes the context of the market, including the current environment and future trends.

    The report opens with a brief introduction followed by an explanation of the academic framework (CAGE) that the analysis is loosely based on. Next is an explanation of the methodology used to gather the report information. The methodology describes some of the challenges faced during the research phase, as well as the most useful sources of information. This section also outlines any underlying assumptions used for predictions and estimations.

    Following the methodology is an explanation of a data sample. The first data set is the Production & Contact Information, which provides a list of the parts produced at each of the companies’ facilities and its contact information. The second data set is the OEM & Tier Combination, which maps the connections between the OEMs and their respective suppliers. The third data set outlines the automotive clusters, and the final set provides a table of industry investments. Unless otherwise stated, all of the information in this section is specific to the Mexican market.
    Next is a general overview of Mexico’s economy, then a more in-depth discussion of its automotive sector. Some of the topics discussed are manufacturing costs, procurement market, and foreign trade. Following this is an analysis of the automotive manufacturing clusters in Mexico. Each cluster is identified by its geographical locations, the companies active in it, and the parts produced in it. The most important or significant cluster are also mentioned.

    After the clusters comes a section on financial investments. Each of the 11 OEMs is profiled with a list of any planned or recent financial investments in Mexico. The report concludes by highlighting three of the major current trends in the Mexican Automotive Parts industry.
