Changing Customer Scope of Suppliers in Korean Automobile Industry after Currency Crisis


  • Deuk-Kyu Bok


This paper analyzes the changes in the transaction structure of auto parts makers in Korea’s automobile industry since the currency crisis of 1997. Examining the auto parts transaction structure during the years from 1996 to 1999, it turns out that the number of assembly companies working with auto parts manufacturers increased, suggesting that the previously closed auto parts transaction structure of Korea has been eased somewhat. However, at the same time it was noted that, auto parts makers reduced the number of assembly companies that they dealt with during the process of optimizing their business transactions
