Revenue growth in a declining market 2019
North America improved its revenue primarily driven by various production ramp-ups of German and Japanese vehicle manufacturers. Despite considerably fewer vehicles being produced in Asia, the BG increased its revenue thanks to high-volume and new programs of European and Asian automobile manufacturers. BG SAMEA continued its growth course. This was mainly due to high-volume export programs in Turkey and South Africa as well as much higher production volumes compared to the previous year in the key SAMEA market of Brazil.
