The Poland Autos Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, auto associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Poland's automotive industry.

Economic instability in Europe continued to limit the expansion of Poland’s autos industry in Q312. This is because around 90% of output from Poland's auto manufacturing facilities is exported, mainly to the EU.

In the first five months of 2012, the value of exports fell by EUR7.75bn (US$9.75bn), as a result of limited overseas demand. As such, it is hardly surprising that the industry has been affected by slow demand for vehicles in Europe and the eurozone. This has prompted Polish carmakers to scale back or suspend production, or even cut jobs. In August 2012, Polish tyre manufacturer TC Debica announced plans to cut its output a further 4%. Swedish commercial vehicle manufacturer Scania and Japanese electronic systems manufacturer Sumitomo Electric both issued redundancy notices in June.
