Please provide a list of the top Automotive Parts companies in Hungary that provide sun-shade parts to European OEMs. Please do provide as many relevant company names as possible. Thanks!
The automotive parts companies in Hungary that provide sun-shade parts to European original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are Polifoam Műanyagfeldolgozó Kft. and PEMÜ Műanyagipari Zrt. Because of the lack of information available about the sun-shade/sun screen industry in Hungary, this research assumes that the niche specifications of the market prevent adequate information dissemination about those particular automotive industry parts. That being the case, because only two companies were identified as manufacturers, it is likely that they are the top suppliers in the country. A discussion about the research that led to these assumptions is presented below, as well as some additional findings.
In order to identify top sun-shade suppliers to European automotive OEM companies in Hungary, I reviewed several manufacturing sector reports and news reports for information since no recent and relevant pre-existing analyses were published about top automotive sun-shade suppliers in the country. I found several top OEM automotive manufactures this way (“Mercedes-Benz, GM, Audi, Apollo Tyres, Hankook, Continental, Bosch, Knorr Bremse, Magna Automotive, Grundfos, Lego, Rehau and Nestlé”); however, no information about their top sun-shade suppliers.
After exhausting all resources in my search for a precompiled list, I reviewed the Association of Hungarian Automotive Component Manufacturers (MAJOSZ) members list of automotive parts companies in Hungary; and subsequently individually reviewed the MAJOSZ members’ websites for evidence of sun-shade parts production. Please note that many of the companies’ websites were presented in Hungarian, so some were not properly searchable for a confirmation that they sold sun-shades (even when using Google’s translation tools).
Next, I reviewed global OEM manufacturers that sold sun-shades and researched whether they sold products in Hungary or had headquarters based in Hungary with no luck. Finally, I looked for news reports of sun-shade manufacturers. Although I found no noteworthy news reports, I did find several databases (e.g., Global Sources, and Alibaba) that listed sun-shade suppliers, but these were after-market B2C suppliers and none listed any viable information about supplies in Hungary to OEMs. Even the top automotive manufacturers in Hungary—and though they are suppliers that note to make the automobiles they represent—did not list their sun-shade supplies or suppliers, nor did their materials note sun-shade/sun screen production.
This lack of information about the Hungarian automotive sun-shade industry led me to a theory that it is possible that each of the top listed automotive manufacturers, since they produce their own cars, might produce their own sun-shades. Alternatively, the industry could be exceptionally small; so small that sites like Alibaba might be good sources to locate these niche suppliers. Finally, I visited AutoPro.Hu (Association of the Hungarian Automotive Industry) that contains a directory of automotive manufacturing partners in Hungary; the site listed two sun screen manufacturers in Hungary:
Given that only two sun screen/sun-shade companies were identified, it might be useful to also note a few additional details about the automotive manufacturing industry in Hungary.
— Automotive manufacturers make up 30.12% of the Hungarian Manufacturing Sector.
— The growth rate of the manufacturing sector in 2015 was 8.1% in Hungary; 26% of the country's GDP was generated by the manufacturing sector.
— Automotive production accounts for 18% of Hungary’s exports.
— The top four OEM companies in Hungary are Audi, Mercedes, Opel, and Suzuki; collectively, the companies employ more than 20,000 workers.
