European Car Market Maserati-GranTurismo_MC_Stradale_2014

European Car Market sales summary by country. The final data for the month of October was negative with combined sales for the 44 countries down 3.0%, first time this year. Not only the Russian collapse is behind the lost.

Economic Outlook in Euro zone and CIS

The Eurozone economy continued to grow in Q3, supported by strong dynamics in domestic demand. However, GDP growth moderated compared to the previous quarter mainly due to headwinds from a deepening deceleration in emerging economies. According to a preliminary estimate, the Eurozone economy increased a seasonally adjusted 0.3% over the previous quarter in Q3, which came in below market expectations that growth would match the 0.4% expansion registered in Q2.

Economic growth in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) continues to falter as the region faces a number of challenges. The majority of economies in the Commonwealth are continuing to experience difficult financial conditions, low commodities prices and therefore the associated weakness in their currencies, as well as the spillover from a deep recession in Russia. Dragged down by Russia’s worst economic meltdown in six years and the headwinds that originated from geopolitical tensions in Ukraine, the economy of the Commonwealth contracted 3.1% in Q2 over the same period last year.

Market Outlook

Following a relatively strong recovery of Continental sales across all the year, in October the market was down 3% compared with the correspondent month last year.

According to data released by all Car Manufacturers national associations and by the  ACEA, total light vehicles sales (cars plus LCVs) in the European continent (including Russia, Turkey and all eastern countries) in October had been 1.5 million (-3.0%) with year to date volume at 15.6 million (+3.8%).

The regional sales had been heavy penalized by Russian market fall, with October lost at 28% but the demand was tepid in all the top markets, with UK breaking the record sales after 43 month, Turkey down for the second month, Germany and France raising marginally and just Italy up a good 8%.

Future outlook projected by these data is a next half almost uncertain with market probably losing between 3-5 percent.
