Supply and use tables: cars in the euro area

The FINANCIAL -- Supply and use tables are used for macro-economic analyses of the the European
Union (EU) and euro area economies. They give an annual snapshot of overall production and use for
different categories of goods and services in the EU, including cars.

Of the €700 billion worth of cars produced in 2017 in the euro area, 14 % was imported from outside
the euro area. Domestic production of cars in the euro area represented 86 % of the car supply: 83 %
was produced by the euro area car industry itself (primary production). The remaining 3 % of the car
supply was from other industries, for example car radios, tyres and upholstery (secondary production).
