Since it overtook the United States in 2009, the world’s largest car market is being eyed by every automaker in the world and BMW is no exception. BMW recently announced that it expects to see China become its leading market for the sale of its vehicles by the end of this year.
Many analysts see China as continuing its dominance well through the decade with sales projections envisioning 30 million vehicles a year being sold there by 2020. There were about 80 million vehicles in China in 2009. Today, in 2013, that number had exploded to over 200 million.
