The Automotive Industry
It should come as no surprise that the automotive industry is one of the most lucrative industries in the world. With two car manufacturers ranking in the top ten most profitable companies around the globe, sitting alongside the frontrunners in the oil and gas industry, it becomes clear that transportation is a necessary resource across all geographical borders. There are clear, steady frontrunners in the automotive industry with Toyota and Volkswagen sitting in the top two spots, respectively. Rounding out the top three biggest manufacturers is Daimler, the owner of brands like Mercedes, Maybach, and Smart cars. To put their size into perspective, the total annual revenue of these three industry behemoths combined is over $435 billion.
