India car industry is the 5th globally in first quarter 2012

The Indian market is traditionally a “small cars market” with 85% of car sold smaller than 3.8 meters. It is dominated by local producer Maruti, owner by the Japanese Suzuki and by Tata and Mahindra. Moreover is the country where the Korean Hyundai is able to perform better than any other, achieving one of best share of market achieved outside of its boundaries.

In spite almost all global players are present in the market, it is still heavily concentrated in the hands of Top 4 brands. During full year 2011, 77% of volume was achieved by Maruti, Hyundai, Tata and Mahindra.

However, Maruti dominated with a share around 40 percent (it was 38.8% in full year 2011).

After several months of uncertain trend with consumer demand depressed by high interest rate and increasing fuel cost, the start of the 2012 calendar year was finally positive.

Moreover, the customer orders portfolio increased considerably in last quarter, due to the diesel engines huge demand (now Diesel is over 50% of total engine’s mix) and the short supply of all small cars diesel versions (4-6 months of waiting list for Maruti and Hyundai).

In the first quarter 2012, Maruti achieved 40.8% market share, followed by Hyundai at 13.9 (2.2 down on full year 2011) and Tata at 13.6 (0.8 up).
