Its origins date back to the 1800s and by the early 1900s cars were being produced in the thousands. Today, the industry has annual worldwide revenues of more than $2 trillion dollars, with about 90 million cars produced each year. The industry is worth about $250 billion in the US, plus there are significant industries in other countries including Germany, Japan, South Korea, Brazil and China.
