Philippines Vehicles Market in 2015 celebrates the 7th all time record in a row.

Philippines Vehicles Market in 2015 celebrates the 7th all time record in a row with sales above the 300.000 for the first time and a volume improved over 300% in the last 7 years. Toyota dominates.

Economic Outlook

The economy gained steam in the final quarter of 2015, growing a stronger-than-expected 6.3%. This pushed full year economic growth to 5.8%. Q4’s acceleration was underpinned by upticks in fixed investment and private consumption as well as by buoyant public spending.

While government spending in the past often fell short of official targets, the strong readings observed in Q3 and Q4 are related to the upcoming presidential elections in May.

Throughout 2015, household spending benefited from remittances inflows and a dynamic business outsourcing sector, while fixed investment was sustained by the government’s infrastructure projects. In fact, the strength of the domestic economy more than compensated for shrinking exports, which suffered from turmoil in China and other emerging markets, in Q4 and in 2015 as a whole.

Market Outlook

in the 2015 the automotive industry celebrated the seventh all time record in a row, the best growing string actually in place world-wide with total vehicles volume three time higher than 7 years ago and still strong positive expectations for the future.
