The global fleet of light duty vehicles (LDVs) is set to at least double by 2050. Some 90 per
cent of this growth will take place in non-OECD countries which import a large number of
used vehicles.
Despite the critical role they play in road accidents, air pollution, and efforts to mitigate
climate change there are currently no regional or global agreements on the trade and flow
in used vehicles.
The three largest exporters of used vehicles, the European Union (EU), Japan, and the
United States of America (USA), exported 14 million used light duty vehicles (LDVs)
worldwide between 2015 and 2018. The EU was the largest exporter with 54 per cent of the
total followed by Japan (27 per cent) and the USA (18 per cent).
