48 SMT Magazine • June 2015 Bornemann: We are doing a couple of medical applications, but still we feel that automotive is definitely, considering China, the key driver of our business. Matties: do you have any concerns about the auto collapse like we saw previously? Bornemann: Looking at the forecast for China, I don't see that. If we look at 20 million cars in China, that still leaves so many people without a car who have the money to buy cars now. And that is supposed to grow by up to five million cars per year. I'm not positive about how real- istic it is, but these are the numbers we keep hearing, so I don't see anything happening in the next five years. Matties: what about their highways? isn't the problem going to be how the highways are going to be able to support those numbers? Bornemann: That is the problem: the infrastruc- ture. It's also interesting to see how the grow- ing train business will influence car sales. They are building fast speed trains all over the coun- try. Metro subways and public train systems are springing up even in cities I've never heard of, but still, I would say it's a rather stable growth. Matties: the interesting thing might be that if there's a crush of people buying cars, there will be so much traffic that they go back to using bicycles. Bornemann: Exactly. It might be e-bikes. Matties: well, it's been a pleasure talking to you. Bornemann: Thank you very much for your time. SMT Guido bornemann is the head of sales for viscom.
