About Us

With the acquisition of the forecasting division of J.D. Power, LMC Automotive will continue to do what it has done before: provide the highest quality global sales and production forecasts for light vehicles and heavy trucks, as well as forecasts of engine and transmission supply and demand. It will continue to publish special studies on subjects of topical interest in these areas as well as studies addressing other aspects of the automotive industry.

LMC Automotive co-operates with a number of other companies. In the generation of its top-line sales forecasts, it is fortunate to have a very close working relationship with Oxford Economics, the rapidly growing and highly respected macroeconomic forecasting consultancy. This company provides the macroeconomic forecasts on which our top-line sales forecasts are based. Other companies in the automotive sector with whom LMC works, combining their collective expertise to bring the best possible information to its clients, include J.D. Power & Associates, the previous owner of LMC Automotive, ACT Research, Campfire Interactive, Inc. and Knibb, Gormezano & Partners.

In a rapidly changing and globalising marketplace, the information and consulting services provided by LMC Automotive offer an essential input for the future success of your company and the size and variety of its client base bears testimony to the quality of its services, its dedication to continuous product improvement and its unsurpassed client support.

LMC Automotive is part of the LMC group. LMC is the global leader in economic and business consultancy for the agribusiness sector. Founded in 1980, it is privately owned and headquartered in the UK, with further offices throughout the world. It provides market intelligence, analysis and advice to clients who include most of the major organisations around the world involved with agricultural commodities, foods, industrial materials, biofuels and their end-markets. Through its work on rubber and tyres, the company made an organic move into the automotive industry, setting up a dedicated automotive division and launching its first service in 1992. In 2001, LMC Automotive Forecasting Ltd was created and in 2004, it was purchased by its long standing alliance partner, J. D. Power & Associates. Today, it is back home in the LMC group.
