Auto Industry Foresees * No Letup in Car Demand By DA\1J j, WIUUE DETROIT, Aug. 10. AP) --Th« ·uto industry ha* built about 29 million passenger cart since World War IT. But it foresees little, if any. let up in demand lor its piwduct. From the manufacturers' viewpoint the problems ahead are mainly those of production -- and normal sales effort. Some car; makers look for a sharp drop in! car assemblies next year because j of materials scarcities. But, they! *ay, production will bounce back' ·harply just as quickly as neces- »ary materials become available. Every car company has its tnarketing analyst* constantly at nvork appraising potential demand for new cars. Generally these experts try to determine probable demand for a year or two ahead. In a few paes, however,' they undertake long range appraisals. One such recently completed long-range study reportedly has Indicated an accumulation of new car demand that could make 1955 the biggest year in auto Industry history. This .survey Is said to have pictured defense work holding bsck new car production in 1952 and j 1953 with a concurrent piling up of demand. The "combined opera-j lions" program through which th*' industry hopes to build both military and civilian products would begin to tak« substantial shape in 1954, according to Uiis analysis. It would be thoroughly establish- j «d by .1955 and the industry would tioM last y*r MW froductlon. But tfcw ccachwioa* ar«i't MAP- W*.
