Automotive Industry

A division of manufacturing that produces, builds, and sells motor vehicles. As driving became more common in the early and mid-20th century, the automotive industry expanded significantly. In the early 21st century, it continued to expand in South America, China, India, and other newly developed countries, though it has stagnated in older markets like the United States and Japan. Most automobiles operate on an internal combustion engine, the use of which has become increasingly controversial because of concerns about emissions.
