Nowadays, the automotive sector generates revenues of 93 billion euros and represents 5,6% of the Italian GDP.
This trend is not only led by big companies: 45% of the industry is composed by an extremely fragmented population of small companies.
Designers and component manufactures are the main actors of this this sector.
Although most parts of the production have been moved to the east, ANFIA (Italian association of the Automotive sector) foresees that the component production will keep its roots in the west world.
With about 12% of its production in the automotive industry, Antoniana Minuterie collaborates with some of the most prestigious car manufacturer suppliers.
