Russia Vehicles Sales in First Half 2016 fell 14%

Russia Vehicles Sales in First Half 2016 Renault Megane sedan 2017

Russia Vehicles Sales in First Half 2016 fell 14% while data on the Russian economy are improving and the GDP decrease is lower than expected projecting a second half in recovery. Lada stable over 18% of share.

Market Outlook

The Russian economy was more resilient to the second oil shock in January: in Q1, GDP decreased 1.2% annually, which was a softer fall than expected. A detailed breakdown of data by economic sectors showed that agriculture continued to expand in Q1 and growth in mining activity picked up over the previous quarter, while the manufacturing sector contracted, although the pace did slow.

Even though domestic demand is expected to be sluggish in the coming quarters, green shoots in credit growth and industrial production suggest that the economy remains in recovery mode. The key factors behind the gradual recovery are the rebound in oil prices and the economy’s slow, yet painful adjustment to a weak ruble.

Good news for the domestic vehicles industry with expectation that the falls is bottoming down and the second half foreseen is a slight recovery, after the 18th year on year lost in a row scored in June.

Indeed, according to data released by the AEB, the Association of European Businesses in Russia, in June the domestic vehicles sales have been 122.633, down 12.9%, while the first half ended in deep decline with sales volume at 671.731, down 14.2%.

In this half, Russia ranked as 14th market in the World (three years ago it was the sixth).
