Currently China has an auto population of as high as 200 million, and, according to estimate, this figure will have exceeded 250 million by 2020. It is also estimated that China’s annual auto production and sales will both reach 35 million in 2018, and will both have exceeded 45 million by 2020, and that China will thus truly become the largest auto market in the world. Auto parts constitute the developmental basis of the auto industry, and the auto parts supporting and after-sales service market is an essential part of the auto market. The rapid development of China’s auto industry has provided a solid industrial basis and powerful market support for its auto parts industry, and will create a super large-scale market output of 1.5-2 trillion RMB.
