About SME


Motorized Vehicle Manufacturing

Motorized vehicles are truly the engine the makes the world turn and are a key industry strategy for SME. Globally, more than 50 million vehicles of all sorts are produced each year by about 8 million workers — more than 5 percent of the global manufacturing workforce — in 39 nations. If the motorized vehicle industry was a country, it would have the sixth largest economy in the world, at more than $2.5 trillion.

Through this website and the pages of SME's annual industry yearbook, Motorized Vehicle Manufacturing, you will receive in-depth information about automotive, on-highway and off-highway vehicles, agricultural/mining, heavy truck and motorsports manufacturing.
