Bulgaria Cars Market in First Half of 2016 Bulgaria Cars Market in First Half of 2016

Bulgaria Cars Market in First Half of 2016 kept momentum, fueled by a solid economic period. Toyota improved in double digit. The Dacia Dokker dominated the models competition.

Market Outlook

Bulgaria’s economy decelerated slightly in Q1 as a steep fall in government spending and fixed investment offset a healthy expansion in private consumption. Meanwhile, the external sector’s net contribution to the overall economy was positive in Q1, although weaker than in Q4.

Data suggest that the economy remained on solid footing in Q2. Growth in industrial production was broadly stable in April and unemployment fell for the third consecutive month in May.

Meantime, the Bulgaria vehicles market during the first half of the year had recorded 14.796 units, improving 7.2% compared to the same period of 2015. In the second trimester the sales kept the momentum with 2.542 registrations (+9.7%), 2.670 (+15.8%) respectively in April and May. The small decline in percentage of June with 3.028 sales (-0.8%) closed the period.

During the first half of 2016, Dacia maintained its leadership with 1.980 sales (+10.7%) and 12.8% of market share, Renault was in second place with 1.931 units (+9.5%) followed by Skoda with 1.349 (+7.1%), ahead of Toyota with 1.274 (+16.0%) and Ford with 1.149 (+8.5%).

As far as the Car Groups performance, the leader was Renault-Nissan with 32.2% of market share, ahead of Volkswagen with 18.6%, Toyota with 9.9%%, PSA with 9.1% and Toyota with 8.8%.
