Chile Vehicles Sales – May 2014. Nissan,Suzuki & Ford shine.

Chile Vehicles Sales

Chile Vehicles Sales fell again in May 2015, posting the 14th year on year fall out of the last 15th month. All competitors are struggling hit by lack of consumer’s demand.

Economic Environment

Chile’s economy accelerated in the first quarter of 2015, expanding at the fastest pace in one year. More recent data suggest that the economy remains on a solid, albeit underwhelming, growth path. Economic activity ticked up in April and consumer confidence increased in May.

On the flip side, business confidence retreated and copper prices recorded their tenth consecutive annual fall in May. In the political arena, secretary-general minister Jorge Insunza resigned after only one month in office amidst criticism over his past dealings with mining companies.

His resignation is a setback for President Michelle Bachelet, who reshuffled her cabinet last month in an attempt to regain support for her ambitious reform agenda and recover from a series of corruption scandals. Bachelet’s approval ratings have fallen to an all-time low against a backdrop of corruption scandals and sluggish economic growth.

Market Outlook

Following a rapid growth with market volume more than doubled in the period 2004-2013, the market is now declining with sales down in the 2014 and in this first part of 2015.

The cumulative figures for the 2015 is almost negative with sales at 107.825, down 22.8% from the correspondent period in the 2014.
