Indonesia car market up 36% in October 2012. Toyota Avanza market leader.

The car market momentum continued with 102.512 sales, up 36.6% from last year. Year-to-date sales were 798.000, up 22.8%. Indonesia was the 2nd car market in the Asean and the world’s 15th having outpaced in October Mexico.

Indonesia’s economy continues its dizzying ascent. Despite record sales, only 4% of the population has a car, a relatively low figure, considering the total population of 240 million people.

By the end of this decade the industry minister forecasts annual sales of 2 million cars, but for that time Indonesia will have overcome Thailand as the biggest market in South-East Asia, even if the Thais will remain the region’s biggest carmakers.

In Indonesia there are always more people who can buy cars, but now they need better roads. In August President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono signed into law the Land Acquisition Bill, which had spent years going through the country’s tortuous legislative process. With it the government could easier compel landowners to sell up, so it would be possible to build more highways across the main islands of Java and Sumatra.
