Asia Automotive Market Rises for UK

by | Nov 26, 2018

According to a recent report, Asia became the fastest-growing export market for the UK automotive sector last year, but the EU still remains its biggest customer.

Value of exported goods from the UK and Asia increased by 21% from 2016.

However the report found that the EU remains the largest export market for the UK in absolute terms, with 45% of UK exports.

Eight out of the UK’s top ten import markets are within the EU, accounting for 84% of imports in 2017.

The UK car industry is the ninth largest car exporter in the world, with a total worth of exported goods at £40bn. And the automotive sector within the West Midlands was responsible for 50% of output and 36% of turnover.

The sector now accounts for 15% of overall UK manufactured exports.
