Australia Vehicles Market has lost 2.9% in June reducing the gain scored so far this year. Toyota is growing faster than immediate competitors with actual market share at 18.9%. Holder  is falling down losing two spots and Honda is the fastest

Australian economy growth jumped in the first quarter, boosted by a significant rebound in exports of commodities, as well as by fixed investment, which benefited from solid growth in housing construction. Consumer spending, however, cooled significantly, weighed down by tepid wage growth, rising oil prices and high levels of household debt. Heading into Q2, the economy seems to have broadly kept pace. Positive consumer confidence and moderate job creation in April and May, together with moderate inflationary pressures, likely fueled household spending, as suggested by healthy retail sales in April.

Australian vehicles market continues its expansion, moderate, by grade, but endless. In the last five years annual car passenger’s sales grew from 1.072.000 in 2012 up over 100k in the last year, with a steady positive trend. Indeed, according to data released by the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructures, in the 2017 the total vehicles industry scored again the All Time Record, the third in a row, with a moderate gain over the previous year.
