May production of major domestic automakers fell below the same month last year for six of the eight.
The impact on automobile production continues due to the delay in parts procurement due to the shortage of semiconductors and restrictions on going out in Shanghai, China.
On the 29th, eight major domestic automobile manufacturers announced domestic and overseas production in May.
Of these, 6 companies decreased from the same month of the previous year, and the
rate of decrease
was 31% for Daihatsu,
23% for Mazda,
14% for Honda,
6% for Mitsubishi Motors, and
Toyota Motor has 5%, and
SUBARU has 2%.
This is because, in addition to the global shortage of semiconductors, restrictions on going out in Shanghai, China due to the spread of the new corona infection have delayed the procurement of parts from business partners, forcing companies to reduce production and shut down their factories.
On the other hand, Suzuki's production volume has more than doubled from the same month of the previous year, and Nissan's production has increased by 1%, as a reaction to the sharp drop in production in India, which is the main market in the previous year.
The restrictions on going out in Shanghai were lifted on June 1, but Toyota Motor Corporation, Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd., Subaru, etc. continued to operate some factories in June due to the spread of infections at business partners. It is stopped.
In addition, some manufacturers have announced that they will cut production in July, and the automobile industry continues to be unable to predict normalization of production.Keywords:
