The automotive sector in Europe has become saturated and the car producers are searching for growth in Asia and the BRIC countries. These developments move faster than expected. The most important factories are already located in China but the main producers are also investing in India. On a mid-long term China and India will become as big as Western Europe or North-America. The share of both countries within the worldwide car market is, according to analysts, expected to be respectively 30 and 11 percent in 2025.
Larive International has advised and assisted many companies in the automotive sector (amongst which various suppliers) to realize their international growth plans in Central and Eastern Europe and Asia.
