Automobiles

Asia is home to the fastest growing Auto markets in the world and naturally this has resulted in global auto majors vying for a share of the pie. Auto component suppliers have naturally followed the OEMs into the region and as a result the regional Auto market now boasts of capabilities on par with the best globally thus opening a world of opportunities for exports and to compete in global markets.

Auto OEMs continue to innovate to improve sales – through used-vehicle buy back, captive financing, vehicle leasing, and many more.
Similarly, the aftermarket parts segment presents a large and growing opportunity for component manufacturers but effectively servicing the market requires innovative sales and distribution models.

Avalon has worked with leading Indian and global auto and auto component players across vehicle segments – from two wheelers to heavy vehicles addressing issues of strategy development, new market entry, performance improvement and partner identification.
