Europe is known as the continent most old of the world and as such the economic and social circumstances in which it is given seem to be well-known. During the harsh years of the economic crisis the automotive industry and car sales suffered considerably, however, from three years ago, things seems that are going to improve. At this time customers have grown to trust their economic power and in the work that you are doing the brands of cars to help sell their cars.

Within Europe not all markets are equal or have the same specific weight. The main ones are Germany, Uk, France, Italy and Spain. During the past year 2016 in all of them the sales of cars increased but not in the same proportion than in other years. The greater increase in was marked Italy, with a 15.8 per cent and the second Spain, with a 10.9 per cent. In minor proportions followed by the markets, French, German, and English with 5.1 percent, 4.5 percent and 2.3 percent, respectively.

With these numbers, it is not strange that during the past year have been sold in the whole of Europe a total of 14.641.356 of new vehicles, that is 6.8 percent more than in 2015. According to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) enrolments have been growing continuously during the last three years and if the market continues to respond as of now 2017 might also be another positive year.

In the ACEA believe that if the Brexit is taken of the correct way, and from the United States, the problems do not complicate consumers will continue to behave like until now. To do this they ask the responsibility to the governments because the automotive sector is a very important pillar for the economy of Europe and many of the countries in the Euro zone. Will have to see how are trade agreements after the departure of the United Kingdom of the European Union and to know which will be the trade policy of the united States.
