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.

  • Tanzania Autos Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 49
    We are revising our forecast for 2014 up to 80% due to new data availability. However, despite the latest data from Renault indicating that sales of brand new Renault's increased 83% in the first nine months of 2014, BMI continues to predict steady growth (in the order of 3% a year) in new vehicle sales from 2015 onwards in Tanzania up to 2018. This owing to the markets erratic growth and low numbers of total sales. Even with this growth, we believe that only 8,063 new vehicles will be sold in t......
  • Venezuela Autos Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    Vehicle sales in Venezuela declined 83.6% year-on-year (y-o-y), to 13,419 units, in the first nine months of 2014 as the increasingly poor economic outlook impacts the sector. BMI is bearish on Venezuela's private consumption outlook, and we expect this to lead to a 95% drop in autos sales over the full year. Vehicle production in Argentina declined 82.3% y-o-y in the first nine months of 2014, to 10,286 units, as the domestic market contracts and the country's business environment deteriorates.......

  • Argentina Autos Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 62
    Vehicle sales in Argentina declined 34.3% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the first nine months of 2014, to 472,044 units. BMI has become increasingly bearish on the outlook for the Argentine autos sector in 2014 on the back of a devaluation of the peso in January, the likelihood of further weakness in the unit going forward, a deteriorating macroeconomic environment, and new taxes on autos imports. High inflation, slowing real wage growth, and increasing unemployment levels are likely to keep private c......

  • Cambodia and Laos Autos Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    The common theme in 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 demographic......
  • Central America Autos Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    BMI View: The outlook for the autos industry in the Central Americas region in 2014 is modest, with tepid sales growth expected in some markets, but contractions likely in others. This is broadly in line with our outlook for the Latin America region, although many markets in Central America are very small in volumes terms, and modest changes in sales figures could have a relatively large impact on the year-on-year (y-o-y) growth rate. Income distribution across much of the region is highly unequ......
  • Cote d’Ivoire Autos Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 39
    According to Renault, total industry auto sales in Cote d'Ivoire rose 10.8% year-on-year (y-o-y) in September 2014, to 667 units. This brought total vehicle sales for 9M14 to 5,539 units, an increase of 3.9% y-o-y. The recent slowdown in sales has prompted us to downgrade our 2014 forecast from 12.0% to 5.0%, which will see sales reach 6,746 units at the end of the year. Côte d'Ivoire has suffered from chronic underinvestment following years of conflict and civil war. Its poor transport infrast......
