This is our COVID-19 Dashboard, updated live with all relevant sales data and forecast information for the largest markets in the world. BSCB will support you throughout the COVID-19 crisis in a variety of ways. With accurate and timely data and forecast, but also consulting support.

We rely on 15 years of experience analysing 180 global car markets and on a network of industry contacts in over 60 countries to keep track of each region’s specific situation as it develops. This means we can build on some countries’ experiences and best practices to help drive others during the lockdown and recovery periods. The particular attention we paid to the Chinese and US markets over the years has come handy for one of our Australian clients already. See a detailed list of the Market Services we offer as well as our client’s feedback here.
