Morningstar’s Global Automotive Observer: Moats, Motors, and Markets

Our forecast for 2023 global light-vehicle demand is to be within a range of down 1% to up 3%, given chip supply issues resulting in constrained production and inventory. Other risks to our sales forecast include a possible recession in major automotive markets this year, an unexpected worsening of the microchip shortage, the Ukraine war escalating, intensifying inflation, rising interest rates, and a COVID-19 resurgence.

In our latest Automotive Observer, we offer a detailed look at the global industry’s 2023 forecast.
