The automotive sector is one of the biggest and most persuasive sector for the economy of any country and it comprises of the assortment of associations and enterprises participating in the plan, advancement, assembling, advertising, and selling of items, the car inventory network contains a forward progression of materials and in reverse progression of data.

Supply chain management is considered a crucial area in the automotive sector and plays a vital role for a firm to stand competitive in the market. Many industries, focusing on supply chain issues and their causes to gain a competitive advantage. This paper is based on a quantitative analysis of barriers in the supply chain of the automotive sector, which are identified through literature review, brainstorming, and the expert’s opinion. A model is developed further, containing barriers and their major causes that are analyzed by using Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). This study will prioritize those barriers according to their weights and quantify the most influential barriers in the automotive sector.
