Stagnant supply chains affect vehicle production
Production of German motor caravans and caravans also increased sharply in the first half of the year, after having to be temporarily scaled down last year due to the pandemic. Between January and June, a total of 69,241 leisure vehicles rolled off the assembly lines of German manufacturers. That is 23.7 percent more than in the same period last year. Output is, thus, back at the record level of the “pre-Corona era”. Motor caravan production grew by 23.6 percent to 44,637 units, caravan production increased by 23.8 percent to 24,604 vehicles. Nevertheless, the caravanning industry is currently struggling with supply problems, as Onggowinarso elaborates: “Production continues to be severely affected by a lack of components and raw materials. The order books are very full, but the strained and faltering supply chains prevent production from ramping up further. It will take several more months before the situation eases and the bottlenecks are gradually reduced,” Onggowinarso explains.
