BMI View: A combination of a slowing economy, low oil prices and higher local interest rates has led to BMI adopting a more cautious stance towards the new vehicle sales market in 2016. We expect just 1 .0 % sales growth for the sector this year.

Key Views

  • Over 2016-2020, we expect new vehicle sales to show total growth of 31.0%, to over 500,000 units.

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

  • The UAE is home to bus manufacturer Hafilat Industries. The company produces a range of buses based on chassis provided by European bus makers.
