Abstract

Brazil has become one of the core locations of the automobile industry. In 2015, Brazil was among the world’s ten largest producers of automobiles and among the largest automobile markets, despite its decline in the last two years due to an internal economic crisis. This discussion paper intends to present an overview of the Brazilian automotive industry, emphasizing national public policies.

The Brazilian automotive industry evolved over the past 60 years through four clearly defined steps, from importer to local producer with a limited degree of autonomy in local projects. In fact, undergoing these steps has been related to market importance and attractiveness, government influence through regulations and the development of the “global” strategy of the main manufacturers.
