Kazakhstan October. Auto sales up 24%

Kazakhstan Vehicles Market Volkswagen-T-Roc-2018

Kazakhstan Vehicles Market up 24% in October keeping the impressive speed started in July and projecting the full year finally up, following three years of decline. Toyota is market leader while the new brand Ravon grew up in third place.

Kazakhstan economy continues to sail smoothly as the country benefits from increased oil production in the massive Kashagan Field and large infrastructure projects related to the government’s plan to upgrade facilities. Moreover, authorities’ diversification strategies also appear to be bearing fruit. More comprehensive data corroborates that the economy expanded 4.2% annually in H1 due to robust growth in the industry and construction sectors. Economic momentum carried over into Q3, with industrial production recording healthy growth in July.

Kazakhstan vehicles market has boomed in the years until the 2013, when the all-time record was established with 163.537 sales, before to rapidly decline back to only 46.327 units sold in the 2016. This year the market is marginally declining and the start of a new positive track is foreseen for the 2018, when sales will be back near 50.000.
