Netherlands Autos Sales Opel-Karl_Rocks-2017

Netherlands Autos Sales in Q3 had been almost negative although national economy reported positive data. The demand declined both a private and fleet. Opel is the star of the year.

Market Outlook

A growing economy, a narrowing budget deficit—which the Ministry of Finance expects to shrink to 0.5% in 2017—, robust growth in house prices and strengthening purchasing power all corroborate the government’s economic outlook.

Revised data showed that the Dutch economy expanded 0.6% in Q2, which matched the first quarter’s reading. Economic growth in the second quarter was driven by resilient growth in fixed investment, while both private and government consumption decelerated compared to Q1.

As far as the domestic automotive industry, following a tepid first half the third quarter was all in negative territory.
