Australian Automotive Industry

Currently manufactures 200,000+ per Year

Approx. 30% Export

Australian Automotive Industry

Strengths

The capability to produce a vehicle from a drawing, through the complete manufacturing process, all the way to the dealership is a capability possessed by just 13 countries and Australia is one of those. Global design and testing facilities. As one of the largest industry spenders on Research and Development , the automotive industry is seen as the pinnacle of manufacturing.

Approximately AUD$650 Million

For every direct job in the industry, 5 - 6.5 jobs are provided in ancillary industries - multiplier effect

High levels of skill and innovation

Challenges facing the Auto Industry


From the mid 1980s until 2010 the highly protectionist policy regime Import tariff rate of only 5% applying from 2010 onwards. Free-trade-agreements for example with Thailand, USA and Malaysia (which reduces the effective tariff rate to about 3.5%) Most open market for vehicle imports of any of the 13 automotive producing countries in the world. Changing consumer preferences and increase in choice in brands has steadily reduced the market share and the volume of locally produced vehicles. Compounding these factors, the Australian dollar has appreciated by as much as 50% against our major trading partners in recent years In 2004 the industry produced 410,000 vehicles, achieved a domestic market share of 30% and exported $5.3 billion dollars of vehicles and components. In 2012 the industry produced 220,000 vehicles, resulting in only 12.5% share Extrapolating first quarter sales in 2013, the locally produced vehicle market share for 2013 calendar year may be less than 10%.

The simpler for the client, the more they will use it.

Delivery Relationship Management


Coaching Mentoring

ASEA >90% conversion from the Assessment to multiple projects.

If difficult for the client, they will NOT use it.

Conversion from Assessment to Project = ?? The ASEA model looks more expensive, but is probably not.
Volume allows negotiation of lower delivery rates.
