Established in 1933, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. was a pioneer in the manufacturing of automobiles. Nearly 75 years later, Nissan has become one of the world's leading automakers, with annual production of 2.4 million units, which represents 4.9 percent of the global market.

In the1980's Nissan witnessed a flourishing period. Their automobiles included high-performance luxury sedans that featured electronic control, variable split four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, an 'intelligent' engine, and a satellite navigation system, as well as other technological innovations. During the late 1980s, Nissan evaluated future consumer trends. From this analysis, Nissan predicted that consumers would prefer a car with high performance, high speed, innovative styling, and versatile options

By the start of the next decade, however, Nissan's fortunes began to decline. Profits and sales dropped; quelling hopes that the 1990s would be as lucrative as the 1980s.When Carlos Ghosn was named COO of Nissan in 1999 the company was running out of gas and careening towards bankruptcy. Eighteen short months later, Nissan was back in the black, and within several more years it had become the most profitable large automobile company in the world.

New strategies, under the leadership of Carlos Ghosn now the President of Nissan motors were put into place to turn around the company's fortune. The company is now looking at consolidating its position and driving for further improvements in its core business in 2013 and beyond.
