2 Facts about CLEPA 3000 member companies in total, representing 2500 SMEs 3 Million employees 300 billion Euro sales

3 CLEPA, the European umbrella membership organisation for the global automotive supply industry 20 National Trade Associations 69 Corporate members

4 Facts about the automotive suppliers 75% of the value of the car comes from the suppliers 50% of the R and D spending from the suppliers A majority of patents are from suppliers Some examples: ABS Airbags Electronic stablility programmes High pressure injection systems Diesel particulate filters Navigation systems

5 Vehicle Production 2003 2008 2013 p.a. Europe16.8 18.0 18.9 1.2% Nafta16.3 17.5 18.5 1.3% Asia 21.1 26.1 30.2 3.3% World 60.1 69.4 76.4 2.4% Automotive Key Figures Supplier Potential 2.4% per annum growth in world production 1.3% per annum growth through outsourcing 0.4% per annum growth through new technologies = 4.1% per annum total potential growth

6 The European Automotive Manufacturing Industry Official number of employees2.1 million Industry estimates6.5 million Whereof Suppliers5.2 million Manufacturing output€700 billion R and D spending€24 billion Whereof Suppliers€12 billion


8 New potential markets: China, India, Russia, Poland Low cost production: Baltic States, other Eastern European countries Move to New Countries

9 RELOCATION – The Automotive way Most components are unique to a specific model of a car i.e. “VW Golf 1.8 TDI 2002-2007” For each new model (5-7 years) a new purchasing contract is negoitiated This lead-time is 2-3 years Re-location is a way to meet the price pressure from the VMs Re-location is gradual and progressive “Made in Germany” could mean that 75% of the car is made outside of Germany

10 Automotive Manufacturing in Western Europe under threat? Currently, 33% of Western European Supplier (WES) has operations in Eastern Europe and 15% in China Soon, 50% of WES will be operating in Eastern Europe and/or China 39% of all WES intend to transfer parts of production process to Eastern Europe in the next 5 years 23% of all WES planning similar investments in China Source: Ernst & Young

11 VMs moving eastwards Hyundai – informal agreement to invest approx $1.2 billion in a new 300,000-a-year Czech assembly plant, adding 10,000 jobs Toyota and Peugeot – new plant in Czech Republic, having capacity to make 300,000 cars a year, investment of approx €1.5 billion Slovakia set to be the world’s biggest car producer per capita Slovakia – home of PSA Peugeot-Citroën’s newest European plant, forecast to make 1million cars a year by 2008 Kia will invest €835m in Slovakia, production should reach 300,000 cars a year from 2008 Peugeot will invest €1.1bn in Slovakia, production should reach 450,000 cars a year by 2009

13 Key location factors low production costs low wage costs sound employee qualifications good engineering skills flexible and motivated labour markets good working attitudes proximity to attractive sales markets demand for cars set to grow swiftly political and economic stability Source: Ernst & Young, FT

14 Parts market: growth and manufacturing attractiveness 2003-2010 (100 = best in peer group) Source: Roland Berger Strategy Consultants 1 Combined OEM and aftermarket for automotive parts 2 Based on manufacturing opportunity weighted with political/financial stability and investment flexibility Cumulative automotive parts market growth 2003-2010e 1 Manufacturing attractiveness rating 2 Japan Italy United States China Germany South Korea France Russia Brazil Latvia Mexico Lithuania Vietnam Slovakia India PortugalEstonia Hungary Philippines United Kingdom Argentina Malaysia Poland Canada Indonesia Average 12.8 Czech Republic Turkey Spain Romania Ukraine Bulgaria Slovenia Average 47.1 1530456075900 0 10 20 30 40 50 55 100 1 2 3 4 Colombia
