CCC: Every third Car is Sold to China13. December 2016
As previously mentioned in our news articles, the Chinese market is form huge importance for the German car manufacturers. Globally the Chinese automotive market represents over 33% of all vehicle sales worldwide.
In China, there is a steadily increasing demand for German premium vehicles and growing demand for SUV’s. This sales trend was pushed by tax incentives for small motorized weighing. That’s the reason for the huge demand of small SUV’s like e.g. BMW X1.
As mentioned in the article form the “Manager-Magazin”, from November 26, 2016, the German OEMs sold approximately 19% more vehicles to China in the third quarter of 2016, compared to the previous year. The Volkswagen Group had about 40% of its new registrations in China this year, with 22% of all newly produced BMW cars were sold to China, and 19% of all Daimler motor vehicles were sold in China.
It is exciting to see how the sales will develop in the coming year, as the end of the year the tax relief will come to an end.
The huge potential of the Chinese automobile market strengthens the OEM’s as well as the automotive supplier network. Many different types of automotive parts are required to have CCC certification. It is important to check if CCC is needed to avoid problems.
