Exports take UK car manufacturing up a gear

Car manufacturers in the UK increased output by 9.3% in November 2015, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

Overall, 150,084 cars were built, as demand from abroad continued to grow. Export production increased by 10.8%.

The year-to-date output is currently 3.8% up on 2014 figures, with 1,474,835 cars produced.

Mike Hawes, chief executive of the SMMT, said: “November’s manufacturing gains are encouraging, and put the car industry in a strong position with one month left in the year.

“Particularly pleasing is the recent pick-up in export production, which is proof that despite challenges in some global markets, the UK continues to build cars that appeal to consumers across the world.”

This is good news for polymer recycling, with much recycled material being fed into the car manufacturing industry.
