Market Overview

The Asia Pacific Automotive Logistics Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 5% during the forecast period.

As per the industry analysis, the Asia-pacific region is estimated to hold the major market share in the global market studied. This is primarily because of the presence of the emerging economies, like China and India. Numerous factors, like the easy availability of raw materials, increased demand for vehicles in the region, rising population, and availability of low wage workers, are anticipated to drive the automotive logistics market in the region.

Asia Pacific is home to some of the major automotive OEM companies, like Toyota, Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, and SAIC Motor Corporation Limited, among others. With the increasing production and trading activities, there is a demand for the logistics companies to manage the procurement, transport, and storage activities of the OEMs to optimize the latter’s supply chain more efficiently.

The global logistics companies are increasingly entering the Asia pacific region, to tap the growth associated with the market. For instance, in June 2019, French logistics provider, GEFCO, has set up a dedicated subsidiary in Chongqing (China) for specializing in importing and exporting vehicles by rail between Europe, Russia, and China.

Ever-shifting international trade policies, evolving safety, and environmental regulations, escalating demand for electronic and autonomous vehicles, changing societal attitudes toward automobiles, global politics, and even cybersecurity issues—all play significant roles in the great auto supply chain.

Various initiatives are undertaken by governmental bodies to accelerate the automotive logistics market further. For instance, in Asia-Pacific, relevant regulations and initiatives to improve professional standards by industry & government play an important role in logistics operations. The range of logistics services is subject to logistic industry regulations and policies. Moreover, the expansion of such services is also driven by government policies. For instance, the Framework Act on Logistics Policies in Korea provides benefits to companies delivering integrated services of warehousing, transport, and value-added services. The companies entering in the automotive logistics market have to comply with multiple entry requirements depending on the type of plan they offer.
