The automotive market is a diverse one, ranging from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and component manufacturers to dealerships and commercial vehicle manufacturers.

It’s also an industry in flux. Large automakers that have dominated the market for so many years are experiencing decreasing profits and losing market share.
