In line with the organisation of the event, SDCM also announced their report on the scale of the Polish automotive industry and market, with the analysis of the problems, megatrends and legal regulations affecting the automotive field. The report outlines that the automotive sector constitutes an important part of the Polish economy. In 2017 the value of marketed production of the Polish automotive industry reached over PLN 145 billion, with spare parts and accessories contributing nearly 60% of it. Due to extensive production background, good infrastructure, highly-qualified staff, as well as attractive location, the Polish potential is valued by many foreign companies. The report will be distributed among SDCM Members, Polish decision-makers, MPs and MEPs.
SDCM – Polish Association of Automotive Parts Distributors and Producers brings together over 100 of the prominent suppliers of car parts and largest distributors of spare parts in Poland. SDCM is a Polish voice of the automotive industry.
