Poland new cars sales Subaru-WRX_2015

Poland new cars sales boomed in the third quarter thanks to the economy acceleration. Skoda is market leader despite losing terrain yer on year. Volkswagen in second is booming sales.

Economic Environment

Poland’s economy expanded at a healthy annual rate in Q2, despite a slight deceleration compared to the previous quarter due to a weaker external sector. The latest indicators paint a mixed picture of the economy in Q3.

In August, industrial production accelerated, but retail sales fell to a four-month low and business confidence decreased to an eight-month low. In the political arena, in the run for the parliamentary elections scheduled for 25 October, recent polls have consistently shown that the right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party has a lead over the ruling Civic Platform (PO).

PiS has lead the polls since the surprise victory of Andrzej Duda in the 24 May presidential election. Another victory for PiS could prompt significant changes in Poland’s policies as the party is strongly nationalist and moderately Eurosceptic. This could have negative implications for the budget deficit as well as for attracting international investors.

Market Outlook

Despite the high volume hit at the end of the 2014, this year the Polish new vehicles market is growing fast. Indeed the start of the year was almost slow but since April the market recovered ending the first half with a +1.1%.

In the third quarter, according to data released by the Polish Automotive Industry Association, the market improved the speed reporting July up 16.0%, August up 15.8% and finally September up 15.7% with 27.255 units sold.

During the first nine months of the year, cars sales had been 258.240, up 5.4% from the correspondent period last year.

Competitive Arena

Despite it is the only top brand losing terrain compared with last year in the year to date figures, Skoda is market leader with a wide gap over the challengers. In September sales had been 3.181 (+4.9%).

Second was Volkswagen with 2.623 units (+44.5%) followed by Toyota with 2.569 (+14.6%), Ford with 2.121 (+19.2%) and Opel with 2.029 (+1.5%).

As far as the best-selling groups, leader in the September was Volkswagen with market share at 25.1%. The second was Renault-Nissan with 14.1% of share ahead of Toyota with 10.2% and Hyundai-Kia with 9.8%.
