Millennials may be finally on the automobile market back

Millennials may be finally on the automobile market back
Smartphones have cars as the must have lifestyle accessory for Millennials or so conventional wisdom goes pretty gloomy data from the auto industry superseded - supported by some.

Not only members are more Gen Y and younger Gen Xers are waiting, driver's licenses, but cars buy down the number you get far more than the rest of the market during the great recession. That is, it signs, returns it slowly to showrooms and could form a buying force in the coming years.

What we've seen in recent years is "not permanent, from the market, to pull back, it's rather a delay", General claims Motors Chief Economist Mustafa Mohatarem.

From the perspective of the auto industry, there was a series of gloomy forecasts in recent months, including a new one from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute or UMTRI. On the whole, it warns that "The combined evidence indicating that, per person, per driver and per household, we now less light commercial vehicles and we take each of them less than a decade ago" according to lead author Michael Sivak.

Another new study by Detroit-based data tracking company r.l. Polk finds that the average age of today's vehicle 11, 4 years is a record and about two years older than the typical vehicle on U.S. roads has risen a decade ago.

But thought that might be the youngest generation of motorists concerned most worrying data, reports UMTRI, wait longer to licensed get - if they even bother. Polk, meanwhile, reports that 14 percent of the new car market accounted for in 2008, but only 10.5 percent until 2011 residents aged between 18 and 34 years.

The big question is, why? A number of studies, including one from the claim US public interest research group, "The driving boom is over," blame probably not on Smartphones to text with friends than actually drive through use, in order to see they are significant social changes, especially Millennials,.

The recession was clearly another problem, considering the large unemployment among young potential car buyers that could be exacted significant College debt - the collective adds up to an estimated $1 trillion - and live at home, where they can rent a family car.

For its part, GM Economist Mohatarem, see "I not evidence that young people lose interest in cars," during an appearance at an industry conference in Traverse City, Michigan, this week. "It is not, because their settings have changed", he argued. "It is because of their needs. The income is not there. There are no jobs. You older, that will change."

Mohatarem and others, optimistic industry planners the industry more traction with Millennials recovery should the economy win, they get better jobs and begin to pay off debts. Also among those who have adopted the new trend of urbanization, more arguments which, will be more interested in cars, as ages Y and as a group the family enters stage of life.

Polk data credence to at least some such a positive prognosis. Buyers 18 to 34 years old accounted for 12.3 percent of the U.S. market for new vehicles around last year.

But not everyone is buying. Another study by CNW marketing found that nearly 10 percent of U.S. households now carless, almost twice the level of two decades ago. Retiring baby boomers put some of this number, but Millennials are the most famous group.

"While the recession in large part was responsible for the latest growth spurt, the trend has been clear," said CNWs research Chief, art Spinella, "a growing number of Americans felt they do not need or want a car of your own."

And that he and others warn, a trend that also continue long after the economy fully recovers and himself as Millennials start to own could have a baby boom.
