Trends & Forces

Declining United States Automotive Industry

The US automotive industry was drastically affected in 2008 and 2009, which followed a general decline starting in 2006. In 2009, with the lowest domestic selling rate seen in decades, each of the “Big Three” U.S. automakers requested emergency loans. GM and Chrysler went bankrupt. Although they have come out of bankruptcy and auto sales are picking up, consumer demand could be weakened by rising fuel and energy costs. Weakness in the economic recovery may also cause another drop in demand.

With United Capital Corp.’s engineered products supplying the automotive industry, a drop in the automotive industry could adversely affected United Capital Corp. Engineered products accounts for 40% of the company’s total revenues in 2010. Autoliv and General Motors are the segment’s largest customers, accounting for 13.9% and 10.4% of the segments sales.
