11.8 percent: Suzuki overtaken BMW in terms of profit margin in Q2

The BMW Group must submit the title of the most profitable car manufacturer in the world, at least in the case of a pure viewing of the second quarter of 2018. The profit margin of BMW was in Q2 of 2018 is very high, and was at 11.4 percent, almost world class, but Suzuki has a different auto maker to the top and fought, and BMW with an even better value trumps: 11.8 per cent margin to make the Japanese the most profitable of the 16 largest automobile manufacturers in the world.

A reason to Resent the change in leadership for the BMW is not, finally, playing for the assessment of the profit margin, many factors play a role. A high level of investment in the future tarnish the margin of a quarter as well as temporary problems on individual markets and currency fluctuations, which is why the viewing of a single quarter is always a primary for statisticians, relevant snapshot. Add to that BMW and Suzuki will compete in entirely different segments and, therefore, only partially comparable Figures.

In comparison to relevant competitors, the BMW Group with its profit margin of 11.4 per cent, continues to be very good: Mercedes and Volkswagen are with each of 6.5 percent to the ranks six and seven of the Ernst & Young on the basis of the quarterly reports generated Rankings. The second quarter only a snapshot in time, emphasize the analysts: For the first half of 2018, the BMW Group is, despite a somewhat weaker second quarter, still ahead of Suzuki.

Even more important, however, is how the corporations do in the second half of 2018 and for the beginning of the trade are conflict ready, if the intensity continues to increase. The BMW Group is trying to make a broad line-up of production as independent as possible.

A good example of this is the BMW X3 is manufactured the world’s sought-after mid-size SUV until a few months ago in the US, are now also constructed, relevant piece in China and South Africa. The company has the Chance to respond to trade barriers and tariffs and thus can attenuate at least some of the effects of the current conflicts. How well this strategy works in the long term, depends on the future course of the conflict and can hardly be predicted.
