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.

    Since the inception of the automobiles in the year 1886 by Karl Benz, vehicle operations have taken a big leap as the carriage used in the first car was a horse buggy. Steam engines were used in earlier times in order to power the automobiles which were later replaced by internal combustion engine. The turning point for the automobile industry was the introduction of line production by Henry ford, during which the single or two cylinder engines were replaced by four cylinder engines. The car ind......

    According to the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA), auto sales rose 0.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) in June 2014 to 452,555 units. We highlighted in April that we expected sales to take a hit after the hike in the national consumption tax on April 1 and, true enough, sales contracted in April and May (see 'Auto Sales Set To Decline As Tax Hike Bites', April 4). That said, the decline in sales was not as sharp as we expected and this has prompted us to revise our full-year forecast upwa......

    As a result of a data released from the Kenyan Bureau of Statistics BMI has slightly downgraded its GDP forecast for 2014 to 5.0%, down from 5.7%. Even this slower acceleration will still be a significant improvement compared to the low growth seen between 2008 and 2012, when annual real GDP expansion averaged just 3.8%. Further supporting vehicle sales is the rising private consumption and increased dealer presence in Kenya. As a result of this and off the back of strong new sales and productio......

Total vehicle sales will reach 36,792 with commercial vehicles being the best performing market growing at 3.3% while the passenger vehicle market will decline by 1.7%. Passenger vehicles will continue to be the worst performing segment as cons......
  • Malawi Autos Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 34
    BMI maintains a particularly bearish outlook for vehicle sales in Malawi, forecasting a 3.3% fall in 2014. We believe that the macroeconomic picture is becoming increasingly poor - predicated on high inflation, the depreciating local currency, and high interest rates - which will curb sales growth. 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 country and, for the fi......
  • Brazil Autos Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI forecasts a 4.6% drop in vehicle sales in 2014, as we expect the passenger car and CV segments to remain weak over the coming year. We forecast a 6% decline in passenger car sales in 2014, as the broader slowdown in consumer spending and higher car sales taxes impacts the segment. In 2014, BMI expects to see 2.3% growth in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment, a slowdown from strong growth in recent years and a 15% drop in heavy truck sales. This relatively bearish outlook is due to th......

    BMI remains positive on the outlook for new vehicle sales in Mozambique. We forecast total sales to reach nearly 35,500 units in 2018, almost double the levels seen in 2012. Commercial vehicle (CV) sales will continue to account for the lion's share of new vehicle sales. We expect passenger car sales to increase at a faster rate over the coming five years. This will see the percentage split between CV and passenger car sales move from 72:28 in 2013, towards 65:35 by 2017. This comes despite us d......
  • Cambodia and Laos Autos Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 77
    The common theme in among Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos is that used vehicles make up the overwhelming majority of their auto markets. The low GDP per capita of these economies makes it difficult for consumers to afford new cars. However, as long as carmakers maintain their expectations, we do see an advantage for firms to develop a toehold in these frontier markets. Over our 2014-2020 period, we forecast GDP per capita to exceed 6.0% annual growth in all these economies, aided by their young demog......
