Australia August. Holden down 37%, Mazda up 23%

Australia Vehicles MarketNissan-Navara_Dark_Sky_Concept-2018

Australia Vehicles Market is almost flat this year and August with 95.221 sales (-0.3%) confirmed the trend. However, within the competitive arena the oldest brands in market are losing terrain with Holden losing 26% year to date and Ford 10%, while Honda is up 24%.

Australian economic activity likely remained robust in the third quarter following a stronger-than-expected second quarter, in which GDP growth was fueled by surprisingly strong household consumption and rising government current expenditure. August saw a jump in new jobs which, together with solid consumer confidence throughout the quarter, points to healthy private consumption in Q3.

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.

In the 2018 the Australian vehicles market is moderately positive – as usual -and a new all time record is possible when economic environment will keep the current pace. Having ended the Q1 with 291.538 sales (+4.4%) and the Q2 with 316.605 (-1.1%), in July sales have been 85.551 (-7.8%) and in August 95.221 (-1.5%) with Year to Date figures at 786.294 (-0.3%).
