Pakistan possesses huge potential to become a manufacturing and exporting hub of the auto industry for renowned original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of the world. By 2013, there were 3,200 units of the automotive industry with an investment of Rs 92 billion, employing 3.5 million people and producing annually 1.8 million motorcycles and 200,000 vehicles. Vehicle Sales correlated with interest rate regime, especially for small-low and economy segments, whilst purchases in small-high (1300 CC and above) correlated with rising income level.

The support of local automobile companies and the auto-part vendors has attained excellence in some fields at par with the global standard but there is room for further development for vendors to scale up their production with the cutting-edge technology and emerging trends in the international automobile market.
