Argentina Auto Sector towards a new era. March 2016 report.

Argentina Auto Sector

Argentina Auto Sector approached a new wave in March following the sharp 2013-2015 crisis and the stabilization process started with the election of the new government in the fall of 2015.

Market Outlook

Argentina’s national statistical office recently began publishing first official data again, following a months-long data dearth that resulted from the statistical overhaul the new government had pledged to undertake. According to a preliminary estimate, the economy expanded a remarkable 2.1% in 2015, thus accelerating over 2014’s increase.

Following the deep lost reported in the last two years, the domestic vehicles market started to stabilize during the second half of the 2015 and after an uncertain start of the year, with the robust March performance should have taken back a growing path.

Indeed, according to data released by the ACARA and the ADEFA, the Argentinian Associations of car manufacturers and dealers, in March sales had been 53.774, up a solid 17.0% from the same period last year.

During the first quarter 2016 sales had been 156.801, up 3.3% with a positive outlook for the entire year.
