BMI View: We maintain our forecast that passenger car sales will fall 10 .0 % in 2016, but have fu r ther downgraded our prediction for commercial vehicle sales, which we now foresee dropping 15 .0 %. Both categories will experience only a modest recovery from 2017, with aggregate vehicle sales expanding by a total of just 8 .0 % across the period of 201 7 to 2020, representing average annual growth of just over 1 .0 % per year.

Key Views

  • Total vehicle sales fell 7.2% y-o-y to 77,159 units in 9M2016, with private car sales falling 3.7% to 54,758 units, sales of rental cars dropping 27% to 2,716 units and sales of commercial vehicles falling 16.4% to 15,693 units.

  • We forecast that H216 would see an intensification of the overall negative trend, particularly for the passenger car segment, and the data for Q316 has borne out this trend, with Q416 likely to see a further worsening of sales performance by this segment.

  • We maintain our forecast of a 10.0% fall in passenger car sales this year, while steeping our predicted decline for commercial vehicle sales to 15.0%, translating into a fall in total vehicle sales of 11.2% to 91,778 units.

  • We then predict annual growth in total vehicle sales of just 2.5% in 2017, taking total sales to 94,108 units, followed by annual rises ranging between 1.1% and 2.6% over the period 2018 to 2020.
