Automotive industry

The Polish automotive sector is one of the largest in Europe. The biggest export hits in this industry are vehicle bodies, electric buses, trailers and batteries. There are many companies in Poland that produce interior and exterior plastic parts, metal processing or manufacturing rubber parts. Poland’s main partners in this industry, in terms of value of exported goods, are Germany, Italy and France. In 2021, exports of the industry accounted for 4.5% of Polish goods exports.

Current and potential investors are attracted by the country’s efficient and cost-effective workforce, proximity to major original equipment manufacturers and high quality production. In addition to the assembly plants for General Motors, Fiat and Volkswagen, Poland is home to manufacturers of engines, engine components and a wide range of car parts. The greenfield investment of €800 million in the new Volkswagen Crafter plant in Września will further accelerate the development of this sector.
