South Africa’s Vehicle Production May Climb Almost 50% by 2020

South Africa’s automotive-manufacturing industry has the potential to boost production by almost 50 percent to at least 900,000 vehicles a year by 2020, if the government maintains stable and supportive policies and the sector avoids labor disruptions, according to the local producers’ group.

“It’s feasible,” National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa director Nico Vermeulen said in an interview in Johannesburg. “We’ve factored into that estimate or target the possibility of new entrants coming into this market.”
