A record sale was made in 2016 in America and it gave the automobile market a very needed boost. However, the ever-increasing economic malady in majority of the other parts of the world, especially in the emerging economies , contributed to a flat year in general, dampening potentials for international automobile manufacturers and suppliers (Hirsh et al.).
1. Evolving industry:
2. Technological Advancement and Constant Product Innovation
3. Increased demand for Luxury vehicles.
1. Consumers’ bargaining power.
2. Automobile industry growth rate(Bhasin).
1. The introduction of fuel efficient cars:
2. Strategic alliances

In 2017, the industry is inclined towards major disruptions (Issing). The manufacturing process and cars driven are being transformed by:
1. Alternative fuels
2. Innovative technology
3. Fresh, lightweight materials
Designs will have to be ranked
from the simple design to the top design
Safety will be measured from the lowest safety to the highest
I have chosen this criterion since most customers are interested in safety and designs of the automobiles.
