The Impact of Globalization on Automotive Retailers

  1. 1. The Impact of Globalization on Automotive Retailers Professor Timothy K. Gilbert Northwood University West Palm Beach, Florida
  2. 2. <ul><li>We live in an amazingly complex global world, and the challenges will be likewise enormous. </li></ul><ul><li>The task remains – to see opportunity before your competitor capitalizes on it. </li></ul><ul><li>The cost of staying in the game continually rises, and some will not be able to last. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Automotive Sector Dynamics Five Global Themes Although the global assembly outlook is positive, massive structural change is occurring just below the topline, forcing OEMs and suppliers to rethink their manufacturing investment strategies. Overall growth is definitely centered on the Asia-Pacific region (driven by emerging markets + low-cost sourcing), but much fewer opportunities to gain first mover advantage as competitive pressure intensifies. Globalization 1 Automaker growth strategies are beginning to diverge as most OEMs have finite resources, forcing them to choose where to concentrate their efforts – global sector is an environment where not everyone can win . Shifting Competitive Dynamics + Big Bets 2 New vehicle types (crossovers, MAVs, etc.) are taking share from traditional vehicle segments at an alarming rate, but OEMs risk getting lost in a sea of non-distinct product offerings – market fragmentation = high marketing costs. Segmentation Shifts 4 Capacity Investment + Rationalization Traditional players are finally addressing overcapacity issues in their home markets, redeveloping manufacturing footprints to accommodate flexible assembly – but urgency for turnaround is now , not 2-3 years away. 3 Supply Chain Restructuring Private Equity activity in the parts sector kicking into high gear as more suppliers buckle under the pressure of uncompetitive business models – OEM move to consolidate suppliers also driving M&A activity going forward. Retail changes biggest in Europe with pending US consolidation on horizon. 5

  10. 10. Can Domestic Manufacturers Get Their Costs Under Control and Still Produce Comparative Quality Vehicles?
  11. 11. Without Losing Additional Market Share?
  12. 12. Market Share <ul><li> 2004 </li></ul><ul><li>GM: 27.61% </li></ul><ul><li>Ford: 19.39% </li></ul><ul><li>Chrysler: 13.08% </li></ul><ul><li>Toyota: 12.21% </li></ul><ul><li>Honda: 8.27% </li></ul><ul><li>Nissan: 5.07% </li></ul><ul><li>VW: 1.98% </li></ul><ul><li>Other: 12.38% </li></ul><ul><li> 2005 </li></ul><ul><li>GM: 26.30% </li></ul><ul><li>Ford: 18.34% </li></ul><ul><li>Chrysler: 13.60% </li></ul><ul><li>Toyota: 13.34% </li></ul><ul><li>Honda: 8.63% </li></ul><ul><li>Nissan: 6.36% </li></ul><ul><li>VW: 1.81% </li></ul><ul><li>Other: 11.62% </li></ul>
  13. 13. Change in Market Share <ul><li> 2004 </li></ul><ul><li>GM: 27.61% </li></ul><ul><li>Ford: 19.39% </li></ul><ul><li>Chrysler: 13.08% </li></ul><ul><li>Toyota: 12.21% </li></ul><ul><li>Honda: 8.27% </li></ul><ul><li>Nissan: 5.07% </li></ul><ul><li>VW: 1.98% </li></ul><ul><li>Other: 12.38% </li></ul><ul><li> 2005 </li></ul><ul><li>GM: (1.31%) </li></ul><ul><li>Ford: (1.05%) </li></ul><ul><li>Chrysler: .52% </li></ul><ul><li>Toyota: 1.13% </li></ul><ul><li>Honda: .36% </li></ul><ul><li>Nissan: 1.29% </li></ul><ul><li>VW: (.17%) </li></ul><ul><li>Other: (.76%) </li></ul>
  14. 14. Changes in Market Share Reflect Buyers Who Have Switched <ul><li>Will buyers who have switched from domestic brands to foreign brands stay with them? </li></ul><ul><li>Can domestic manufacturers make good quality product at the same cost as foreign manufacturers? </li></ul>
  15. 15. New Product Cost Versus Consolidation
  16. 16. <ul><li>Manufacturers are continually pushed to introduce new product </li></ul><ul><li>This is true for at least three reasons: </li></ul><ul><li>1) New technology pushes buyers </li></ul><ul><li>2) Consumers want fresh, new product </li></ul><ul><li>3) Competition gains share with new product </li></ul>
  17. 17. Nissan/Renault an Example <ul><li>“ The two companies’ alliance, in its eighth year, has been a rare success among the partnerships formed in a wave of consolidation in the auto industry over the past decade.” (Automotive News) </li></ul><ul><li>Nissan-Renault announced a combined drop in sales for 2006 of 3.6% (Automotive News) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Sales suffered last year due to a dearth of new products at both brands.” (Automotive News) </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>The cost to bring a new product to market is enormous; some manufacturers will not be able or willing to spend enough to stay ahead of their competition. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Look at Ford and the F-150 Pickup Truck <ul><li>As Ford readies a new version of its flagship product, it has been faced with stiff competition from: Chevrolet and its new Silverado Truck, Honda and its new Ridgeline Pickup, Nissan and its Titan Pickup, and Toyota and its Tacoma Pickup Truck, Dodge and its Ram Pickup. </li></ul><ul><li>Several of these products did not even exist ten years ago. </li></ul>
  20. 20. All of This Will Filter Down to the Dealers <ul><li>Some manufacturers will consolidate </li></ul><ul><li>Some manufacturers will eliminate certain segments </li></ul><ul><li>Some manufacturers will go out of the market </li></ul>
  21. 21. The Winners Will Be <ul><li>Brands that can make better quality products and are cost effective </li></ul><ul><li>Brands that can continually introduce new, innovative products </li></ul><ul><li>Brands that can create strong customer loyalty </li></ul>
  22. 22. Leadership is the Key
  23. 23. Working Harder is Not Enough <ul><li>Knowing where to go and how to get there </li></ul><ul><li>Thinking just over the horizon not from the rearview mirror </li></ul><ul><li>Creating loyal customers by building a brand image </li></ul><ul><li>Applying sound business principles to the market </li></ul><ul><li>Northwood is aptly positioning its students to meet these challenges </li></ul>
  24. 24. Failure to Lead at the Manufacturer and Dealer Level <ul><li>Loss of Market Share and Consumer Confidence </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing government involvement in our industry </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>Dealers Have Historically Been Aggressive and Innovative </li></ul><ul><li>Dealers Have Always Been in Touch With Their Local Communities </li></ul><ul><li>Dealers Have Been Able to Withstand Economic Downturns </li></ul><ul><li>Dealers Have Been the Key Link to the Market </li></ul>
  26. 26. In the Future Successful Dealers Will Link Strong, Dynamic Leadership to Brands that Offer Fresh, Cost-Effective Product
