Summary
The German car manufacturing industry has been hit by several major incidents in 2015/16, including an emissions scandal involving Volkswagen, slowing growth in the Chinese market, Britain which is Germany's largest car export market voting for Brexit, and a potential Trump run US post the elections in November 2016. Increased protectionism and slow growth in the worlds largest car market can have a serious impact on German car manufacturers. It is not all doom and gloom for the industry though as falling crude oil prices and fast growing car markets in other Asian countries should prompt a dynamic response from German car manufacturers, wherein they should target new markets and cater to their demands and needs to replace any real and potential losses that have or are to be suffered in Germany's more traditional car export markets.

Key Highlights
• The VW Group which is Germany and Europe’s largest car maker was found in September 2015 to have attached a “defeat device” to many of the vehicles it was selling. This software was able to detect when the car was being tested, and subsequently changed the vehicles performance levels in order to improve emissions test results.

• According to some reports around 7 million more cars are said to have been sold in the global market than if the oil prices had remained stagnant.

• German car manufacturers will also have to show some dynamism in the Asian car market, and might have to drop their prices in the Chinese market in order to remain competitive with the local brands who have witnessed a rise in popularity as Chinese GDP growth rates have fallen.
