High-profile struggles of giants such as General Motors, Chrysler and Ford have brought to the forefront the increasingly volatile market conditions facing today’s automotive industry. Uncertainty surrounding macroeconomic challenges and the liquidity of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), as well as the supply base, makes the near-term seem bleak and uncertain.
