The number of vehicles in operation worldwide surpassed the one billion-unit mark in 2010 for the first time ever.

According to Ward's research, which looked at government-reported registrations and historical vehicle-population trends, global registrations jumped from 980 million units in 2009 to 1.015 billion in 2010.

The 3.6 per cent rise in vehicle population was the largest percentage increase since 2000, while the 35.6 million year-to-year unit increase was the second-biggest increase in overall volume ever, it said.

The market explosion in China played a major role in overall vehicle population growth in 2010, with registrations jumping 27.5 per cent, said Ward.
