Finland June. Sales moderately down

Finnish cars market Toyota-FT-4X_Concept-2017

Finnish cars market dropped marginally in the first half of the 2017 albeit strong consumer confidence. Second half outlook is positive and the moderate and stable recover in place since years should continue. Toyota is market leader ahead of Volkswagen.

Finnish economy got off to an encouraging start to the year, with GDP growing at the fastest clip since Q4 2010 in Q1 according to more complete data released in early June. Detailed national accounts data reveal that the recovery is fairly broad-based and well-balanced, with private consumption growing robustly on the back of strong consumer confidence and fixed investment expanding healthily thanks to accelerating global trade dynamics.

Automotive Industry has not yet recovered the pre-2008 crisis level, albeit a moderate and stable recovery is in place since years. The finally positive data from the economic environment support a positive outlook over the next 18 months.

Meantime, according to data released by the Autotuojat, the local Association of Car Manufacturers, the new car passenger’s sales did not start the year as hoped, losing terrain in the first quarter and then partially recovering in the second with first half sales at 64.275 units, down 1.8%.
