Turkey’s auto industry is in the midst of a moderate slowdown as global, particularly European, economic
conditions limit export possibilities and domestic economic tensions cut into vehicle sales. The industry is
facing a period of retrenchment. BMI forecasts that total vehicle sales will fall by 2.62% year-on-year (yo-
y) in 2012, to 883,784.
This follows three years of fast sales growth and is a setback for the industry. However, the drop is likely
to be short lived, as we predict sales will increase on average 7% y-o-y for the remainder of our five-year
forecast period. Vehicle production is also set to suffer this year, with an expected drop of 3%, to 1.15mn
units, before predicted annual average 10% growth until 2016.
Overall, however, the Turkish auto industry is still an attractive site for manufacturing and a promising
market for sales: 2012 will temporarily put the brakes on rapid expansion.
Vehicle sales fell 0.8% y-o-y in August, to 60,871 units, according to the Turkish Automotive
Manufacturers Association (OSD). Sales in 8M12 fell 15.3% y-o-y, to 485,611 units. Much of this drop
occurred within the passenger car segment, where sales dropped 11.25% y-o-y, to 330,257 units. Over the
same time period, exports fell by 9% y-o-y, to 486,113. Of this, 265,119 units were passenger cars, with
exports for this segment down 10% y-o-y. Imports also fell 10.95% y-o-y, to 302,746 units, in 8M12.
Through its exports, the Turkish automotive industry is exposed to the wider European region and
economic problems. Coupled with slowing growth on the domestic market, this has curtailed the sector’s
previous rapid growth.
Turkey’s automotive production dropped 29% y-o-y in August 2012, according to the OSD. Around
37,500 units were produced in August, a 61.4% drop from July. This drop in production occurred across
all classes. Passenger car output fell 24% y-o-y, to 19,932 units; commercial vehicle production dropped
31%, to 16,880 units. Tractor production fell 66% to 693 units. For the first eight months of 2012
production is down 10%, to 725,951 units. Of particular concern is the news that the capacity utilisation
rate in Turkey’s auto industry has fallen to 27%.
On top of this malaise, the Turkish government has announced a surprise hike in the Special Consumption
Tax (SCT). The rise, which applies to cars, has provoked anger in the country’s auto industry. According
to Turkish Weekly, the head of the Turkish Automotive Distributors Association (ODD), Mustafa
Bayraktar, complained there was little point in members formulating strategies when tax policy was
subject to change dramatically with no warning. He added that what was already a difficult year for
Turkish auto distributors was set to worsen as a result of this policy. A survey of ODD members revealed
they expect sales to drop by up to 15% y-o-y in 2012.
In more positive news, in February French automaker Renault announced plans to invest EUR234mn
(US$307mn) in its production facilities in Turkey.

  • Malawi Autos Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 42
    BMI maintained a particularly bearish outlook for vehicle sales in Malawi in 2014. We expect to see some modest growth in 2015 due to pent-up demand in the market, but we maintain that sales are likely to remain low in volumes terms due to high inflation, the depreciating local currency, and high interest rates. Food insecurity has caused the price of maize to climb, and resulted in long queues for the little that is available. An estimated 2mn people are in need of food aid within the count......

    BMI View: According to the BoN, new vehicle sales in Q314 came in at 5,525 units, an increase of 22.7% year-on-year (y-o-y). This brought auto sales for 9M14 to 15,803 units, an increase of 6.9% y-o-y. We have been bullish on auto demand for some time and recent industry sales figures reinforce our view. As a result of the strong momentum in 9M14, we have upgraded our full-year sales forecast and now expect vehicle sales in 2014 to rise 31.0% to 20,822 units. While our Country Risk team expe......

    We have downgraded our domestic auto sales forecast for Taiwan, and now expect total sales growth to come in at 10.2%, from our previous forecast of 13.4%.

According to the Taiwan Transportation Vehicle Manufacturers Association (TTVMA) auto sales grew by 6.5% year-on-year (y-o-y) in October, bringing sales growth for the first 10 months of 2014 to 9.0% y-o-y, with accumulated sales coming in at 81,412 units......

We expect this positive growth story to continue, and forecast a 22% increase in passenger car sales in 2015. We expect inflation to moderate somewhat over the year, and access to credit for many Angolans to improve, which should continue to boost car sales. Further, we expect the exchange rate to remain relatively steady, which should help to stabi......

Our forecasts for 2014 proved too optimistic in light of the poor sales in the past few months and as such we have downgraded our full-year sales estimate to 5,464 units, a contraction of 1.0%. We believe auto sales in 2014 were affected by the depreciation in the Zambian kwacha......
