Monthly Meeting


Mike Wall

Director of Automotive Analysis

IHS Automotive  







Program Summary:   

Mike Wall will present the latest IHS Automotive Outlook for 2016 and beyond. Concerns around weakness in the Emerging Markets remain high while the ongoing strength of the U.S. market is giving rise to the question of whether we are nearing the peak of the cycle. Mike will discuss IHS Automotive’s take on the outlook for global light vehicle sales and production, with a particular emphasis on the North American outlook.  He will focus on the impact of economics and the influences of low oil prices and international volatility on the auto industry. He will also provide a strategic look at the coming challenges and opportunities facing automakers and suppliers both within North America and from a broader global perspective.

This meeting will allow you to speak knowledgeably to your customers and clients about what will affect them in 2016 and beyond. It can also assist you with your internal planning efforts for the year.
