In 2012, 4.2 million vehicles were produced, although a 2% decline from 2011, South Korea still maintains its 5th global ranking. Over the last five years, South Korea has also developed into a major exporter of vehicles, exporting roughly two-thirds of its total production annually, although the domestic automotive market is characterised as being saturated, South Korea’s proximity to China and the ASEAN markets means that export opportunities, for both vehicles and components, continue to increase. The global expansion of Hyundai-Kia and the emergence of world-class automotive suppliers make South Korea a global competitor.
