BMI View: The combination of a weak economy and a turbulent political environment will lead to another challenging year for the Lebanese new vehicle sales market in 2016 , although consumer demand should remain resilient . We expect 3.9 % sales growth for the sector as a whole, with passenger car sales set to outperform commercial vehicle sales .

Key Views

  • We expect new vehicle sales to grow 22% over 2016-2020, supported by recovering economic growth, rising incomes and favourable demographics.

  • We expect stronger sales growth from commercial vehicle (27.3%) than passenger car (21.8%).

  • Passenger car will continue to account for the majority (94%) of total new vehicles sold.

  • Uncertain domestic and regional security conditions continue to pose a downside risk.

  • Kia (-17%) and Hyundai (-39%) both saw sharp falls in their Lebanese sales, as Japanese manufacturers benefited from a weaker yen and the launch of new model ranges.

  • Korean manufacturers' sales fell (Kia 17% and Hyundai 39%), while Japanese manufacturers grew very well (Toyota 31%, Mitsubishi 71% and Suzuki 105%).
