ANFAVEA: Projections of the entity for 2022
In 2020, the Brazilian automotive sector had a demand crisis caused by the coronavirus. In 2021, a supply crisis caused by the lack of “chips” (electronic items), one of the consequences of the pandemic. To make this year’s projections, ANFAVEA’s challenge was to dose the combination of these two factors. There will be an impact from the global chip crisis, but to a lesser extent than in 2021, with an improvement bias this semester.

But there is good news from agribusiness and infrastructure investments. Anfavea is optimistic about the forecasts for the development of the industry this year. Production: up 9.4% (2.46 million units); domestic sales, up 8.5% (2.3 million cars) and exports, up 3.6% (390 thousand units).
