BMI View: The combination of a slowing economy, lower oil prices and higher local interest rates has led to BMI adoptin g a more cautious view of the Bahraini new vehicle sales market in 2016. We expect 3 .0 % sales growth for the sector this year, with commercial vehicles to underperform passenger cars

Key Views

  • Over 2016-2020, we expect new vehicle sales to show growth of 23%, to take annual new vehicle sales towards the 90,000 unit mark.

  • We expect stronger performance from passenger cars (+23.4%) than commercial vehicles (+19.7%) over our forecast period.

  • A prolonged period of low global oil prices continues to pose a downside risk to our forecasts to 2020.

  • Japanese carmaker Toyota retains its long-held local market leadership, accounting for almost half of the total market in Bahrain.

  • Toyota produced the six most popular vehicles sold in country over 2015, with its Land Cruiser, Hilux, Prado, Hiace, Corolla and Yaris models.
