Potential for Uganda’s Input into Global Automotive Supply Chains

Byansi, James ; Muhumuza, Allan ; Musasizi, Paul Isaac ; Togboa, Sandy Stevens Tickodri ;


On average, an automobile has over 30,000 parts as it leaves a production line. Most car makers the world over source these parts from global automotive suppliers who form part of the Automotive Industry Value Chain. This paper presents three major sectors where domestic manufacturing can plug into automotive supply chains for parts and components that can be adopted onto the global automotive stage, namely: (1) Materials and Mineral resources; (2) Human Resource Potential; (3) Enterprises already plugging into various aspects of Automotive Manufacturing in Uganda. Uganda is rich with naturally occurring minerals that have generally been exported as raw materials. It is therefore imperative that interventions towards development of capabilities for local processing into viable products that can be absorbed into the automotive markets are achieved. The Ugandan population boasts of highly skilled human resources with institutions producing a skilled labor force that has no opportunities for engagement. It is thus imperative that initiatives take shape to enable local input in the automotive value chain with the ultimate aim of indigenous original equipment manufacturing companies coupled with component and subsystems suppliers to propagate industrialization in Uganda
