Czech Republic. 2019 fell 4.5% penalized by national economy’s slowdown

Czech Republic Autos sales

Czech Republic Autos sales closed 2019 at 248.896, down 4.5%, following years of strong growth. The market has been penalized by a less positive momentum for the national economy. Skoda has further reinforced its dominion on the market thanks to the launch of the new Scala, while Dacia and Peugeot hit record share.

Economic Environment

Czech Republic’s economic growth slowed to a one-year low in the third quarter. The expansion, however, remained relatively healthy, mainly supported by upbeat activity in the trade, hospitality and transportation sectors. Household spending likely remained the engine of growth, as reflected by buoyant retail sales in the quarter, and aided by a near all-time low unemployment rate, robust consumer confidence and strong wage gains.
Moreover, the external sector also contributed to the overall upturn, likely supported by an automotive industry which has proved resilient despite headwinds abroad. Turning to Q4, however, lower business confidence and a depressed manufacturing PMI in October hint at the persistence of fragile conditions in the industrial sector overall.

The automotive industry become a crucial factor in the country’s economic development and the great performance reported for one of the major national company, Skoda, has driven up the market in the last years.
