Global Auto Sales Recession Expected To Worsen in 2020

    Last year, auto manufacturers found it difficult to find buyers for cars in both India and China.   Global sales plunged 4% last year and that pain is expected to continue into 2020.

    According to CNN Business, a downturn in car sales could crash more than just the auto industry and the ripple effects could be massive. Citing a report by LMC Automotive, CNN said vehicle sales fell to 90.3 million in 2019, a drop from 94.4 million in 2018. The record high for car sales was 95.2 million in 2017.

    Fears within the industry are that it might have hit “peak car,” according to CNN, and the numbers will continue to decline because consumers are kicking the internal combustion engine to the curb over climate fears. It could also be because new cars are getting rather pricey too and an auto payment takes a large chunk of a paycheck.

    The auto industry is responsible for 5.7% of economic output and 8% of goods exports, according to the International Monetary Fund. It is also the world’s second-biggest consumer of steel and aluminum, CNN noted. So, even a dent affects the global economy overall.

    “There is unlikely to be any real support to the global total from the mature markets like western Europe and the United States,” Jonathon Poskitt, director of global sales forecasts at LMC, told CNN.

    If global auto sales continue to plummet, it could affect jobs and the overall economy. If you haven’t begun preparing for the possibility of an economic collapse, now is the best time to start.  Consider looking into gold or other precious metals as “insurance” or just piling up a little cash where you can.  It’s difficult to say what the next recession will look like, but what we do know is that this current economic manipulation by the central banks can only continue for so long.

      1. People can go on craigslist and find a decent old vehicle for between $5000-$10000 cash and just forget about financing. Last June I bought a 2003 Dodge Ram 4WD with only 130000 original miles from the original owner’s widow for $5000 cash. Truck had been sitting in the garage since 2010. I had to spend another chunk of change to get it roadworthy; tires, hoses, belts, all fluids changed, tuneup, battery, alternator. Truck runs and drives like a champ. Got it all done just in time to make my big move. Just got back from 2 months of traveling through half of the US IN THE SAME TRUCK. 142000 miles and still going strong. Not bad for a truck that was parked for almost a decade. So for about $8000 total counting repairs I got a truck I’ll put up against any new truck on the market. No loan or repo man to worry about.

      2. They used to brag about our living standards, in automobile ads, intended to make us feel classy, not ghetto — a nice, upper-middle class, WASP, masculinist perk, until all the cars started to look Asian, and your genocidal commercials pandered to replacement demographics.

        I think, this is like the fake mortgages, where anyone can get financed, no matter how low class, and the bank is effectively renting it.

        I actually question whether I want to write something like this, publicly, only to have it repeated by the ‘new conservatives’ from the Planet of the Apes.

        But, to me, insuring your company against losses, to put road-unworthy humanoids behind the wheel, is an example of insurance fraud, which makes life a little more insufferable, for anyone near a paved surface.

      3. Try and get a good deal on last years models……not happening much. Used cars values have gone up due to the over priced new cars too.
