Market share is the percentage of total sales or revenue within a specific industry or market captured or earned by a particular company, brand, product, or service during a defined period. It is a key performance indicator that helps assess a company's position and influence within its industry, providing insights into its competitive standing and market dominance.
An OEM's market share is a key indicator of brand health. It's not just about having the largest slice of the pie; it's about understanding where you stand concerning your competitors. Market share gauges the ability of an OEM to influence market trends, consumer choices, and industry innovations.
A recent Cloud Theory release identified a few current market leaders as Honda, Kia, and. Toyota. These market leaders can wield considerable influence, setting industry trends and shaping customer preferences. Market share is the pulse of the auto industry, and an automotive OEM needs to keep a finger on that pulse to be successful and overtake competition.
OEM Reliance on Static Data is a Mistake
In the automotive world, change is the only constant. An OEM’s ability to identify opportunities and vulnerabilities in its market position and current digital marketing plans is severely limited when those decisions are made using static data. An OEM relying on static data to make decisions to grow their market share, like inventory allocation, incentive optimization, and marketing plans, is like navigating an outdated map. The automotive industry is in a perpetual state of transformation, shaped by factors such as consumer preferences and technological advancements. In the automotive industry, timing is everything, and relying on old data can lead to falling behind competitors more attuned to the present and future.
