BusinessAutomotiveChina's automobile industry registers steady expansion in 2022.

The Chinese automobile industry has been showing a stable growth trend in 2022, with impressive year-on-year increases in revenue and profits, according to data released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM). With the combined revenue of companies in the sector reaching 9.29 trillion yuan ($1.37 trillion), the industry saw a growth of 6.8% compared to the previous year. This impressive figure reflects the strength of the Chinese automobile market, which continues to drive forward despite challenges in the global economy.

The sector’s profits reached 531.96 billion yuan in 2022, an increase of 0.6% from the previous year. This growth was not only significant but also outperformed the overall manufacturing industry by 14 percentage points, further highlighting the strength of the automobile industry in China. In addition, the industrial added value of auto manufacturers rose by 6.3% from the previous year, outpacing the major industries by 2.7 percentage points.

However, vehicle production and sales volume showed a decline in January of 2023, with 1.59 million units in production and 1.65 million units in sales, falling by 33.1% and 35.5% respectively from December 2022. Despite this setback, the Chinese auto exports have continued to grow steadily in the first month of 2023, with a total of 301,000 vehicles being exported, a rise of 30.1% from the previous year. Furthermore, exports of new energy vehicles jumped by an impressive 48.2% year-on-year to 83,000 units.

Despite the challenges, CAAM remains optimistic about the growth potential of China’s automobile industry. The association notes that there are still difficulties in sustaining growth in the first quarter of 2023 and that policy support is needed to boost auto consumption. In response to this, several government departments have announced their commitment to stabilize and expand auto consumption, with relevant policies being rolled out in various regions. These measures are expected to bring stability and confidence to the automobile market, helping it to grow and thrive in the coming years.

In conclusion, the Chinese automobile industry is proving to be a powerful force, with impressive growth and stability in revenue and profits. Despite challenges, the industry continues to push forward, driven by the strength of its exports and the support of the government. The future of the Chinese automobile market looks bright, and with continued growth, it is set to become a major player in the global economy.
