With more than a thousand companies involved in the sector, Spain is the 8th country in the world in terms of vehicle production, being the 2nd in Europe and the 1st in the production of industrial vehicles. A sector that continues its growth and transformation by including the application of new technological tools and digitalisation that are offering new possibilities within it.

Motor, car and transport

The motor industry has undergone constant change and renewal in recent years. Despite being an industry sensitive to economic cycles, its ambition has forced it to continually reinvent itself over the last decade.

For the motor show industry, the future is already here. That is why it has always been its constant objective to offer the best solution for the end customer, always opting for investment in high technology and in the robotics sector.

Such is its influence on society that it covers 10% of the total GDP of the national economy. The data speaks for itself; more than a thousand companies involved in the sector (directly or indirectly) or the generation of employment measure the state of the industry. As a last point, Spain is at the top of the podium in terms of production of industrial and utility vehicles.

The sectors of the motor industry

The industry welcomes relevant sectors whose professionalism and work based on technological advances form very lucrative synergies for the industry.

Thanks to the automation in the manufacturing processes, professionals are able in time to pay more attention to the design and improve the most technical aspects of the car. This makes driving safer and more sustainable.
