Paraguay June. Economic recovery pushed up the market

Paraguayan Vehicles Market Kia-Rio_Sedan-2018-1600-08

Paraguayan Vehicles Market boomed in the Q2 after the shy start of the year ending the first half with a 8.9% recovery from the negative 2016 score. Kia is still leader despite losing sales and the skyrocketing Chevrolet performance.

Paraguay’s economic story remains bright after GDP boomed in Q1. A record soy harvest is supporting growth this year, along with a number of infrastructure projects both underway and in the pipeline. In May, economic activity expanded nearly 5% year-on-year, rebounding after April’s temporary contraction. Healthy consumption and investment should drive solid growth this year, along with an economic stabilization in major trading partner Brazil.

The automotive industry arrived to this year after a deep 15.3% lost reported in the 2016.

The effects of the economic recovery in place has been visible in the second quarter, after that the Q1 ended down 7.0%. However, during the second the market accelerated and, as reported by the local Automotive Manufacturers Association, total light vehicles sales in the first half have been 12.986, up 8.9%.

At brand-wise, Kia has confirmed the leadership selling 2.384 vehicles (-8.0%) and was followed by Chevrolet with 1.866 units (+103%), Toyota with 1.775 (-3.7%), Hyundai with 1.40 (-47.3%) and Volkswagen with 1.068 units (+58%).
