Asia/Pacific /Vehicle Production By Nation : 2014



I didn't bother to do a car list as well because there isn't that much difference. This region is more about car making so just did total vehicles. Going back fifteen years to 1999, China accounted for under 11% of vehicle production. Now it close to 50%! Japan had nearly 60% of the volume back then but is now near 20%. So a lot of change over the years, but less in recent times.

Other notable changes is South Korea reaching 17.4% in the year 2000 (now 9.6%) and Taiwan 1.8%  that year (now 0.8%), Thailand 5.6% just two years ago (now 4.0%) , and Australia 1.9% in 2003 (now 0.4%). The total has gone from 16.8 million in 1999 to 47.4 Million in 2014. That represents 52% of global vehicle production in 2014, up from 29% in 1999. This region has become the main hub of vehicle making worldwide.
