Its origins date back to the 1800s and by the early 1900s cars were being produced in the thousands. Today, the industry has annual worldwide revenues of more than $2 trillion dollars, with about 90 million cars produced each year. The industry is worth about $250 billion in the US, plus there are significant industries in other countries including Germany, Japan, South Korea, Brazil and China. And the industry is changing with emerging markets showing the most growth. There are also new technologies being developed to improve safety, efficiency, and to protect the environment.
