Indian cars scene dominated by Maruti in September

Indian cars scene

Indian cars scene dominated by Maruti in September with market share almost at 50% thanks to the new all time record sales and the new Baleno jumped in 6th place.

Market Outlook

India’s economy started off FY 2016 on a sour note with growth moderating to an over-one-year low in the first quarter. Surging government spending managed to prevent an even larger slowdown as fixed investment plunged and private consumption decelerated.

However, the weakness seen in Q1 FY 2016 is likely to dissipate slightly in Q2 and high-frequency data are more positive: both the manufacturing and services

In such positive environment, the car market is taking up the momentum and in September scored a new astonishing performance.

According to data released by the SIAM, the Society of Indian Automotive Manufacturers, in the last month the car passenger’s sales in India had been 278.000, up 19.6%.

Year to date sales have been 2.308.000, up 13.1% from the last year.
