Auto-market- a live wire

The fits and starts in emerging economies in 2015 are leaving their mark on the automotive market.

In contrast, the U.S. and Europe are picking up with stable growth and appear to have put the worst behind them.

China is the biggest grey area in the worldwide automotive market amid concern over ever-slowing auto sales. Recession-ridden Brazil and Russia have seen registrations plummet. The European automotive market is finally showing signs of recovery after a number of difficult years.

The U.S. market should stabilize once it climbs back to peak levels.
