Indonesia Light Vehicle Sales fell 10% in Q1 2015

Indonesia Light Vehicle Sales

Indonesia Light Vehicle Sales fell 10% in Q1 2015 hit by negative economic environment. However, Toyota Group boomed sales and gained over 50% of market share. Mitsubishi and Isuzu collapsed.

Country Outlook

Expectations are high that government-led infrastructure spending will boost the economy this year following disappointing GDP growth in 2014. However, there are also doubts regarding whether the savings generated by fuel subsidy cuts will be enough to fund the near-doubling of capital expenditures as laid out in the 2015 budget, particularly in light of the expected drop in oil-related revenues.

Moreover, it remains to be seen at what rate government funds will be disbursed and how many of the projects in the pipeline will materialize. The success of the government’s expansionary fiscal plans may well determine the fate of the economy this year, given that other sectors are stuck in low gear.

No strong recovery of export growth is expected in the near term, with subdued global demand offsetting the effect of a depreciating currency. Exports of commodities such as coal and palm oil, but also manufactured goods, are stuck in a rut. In fact, the manufacturing PMI hit a record low in February.

Market Outlook

In March 2015 according to data released by GAIKINDO, the Indonesian Associations of Car Manufacturers, total new Light Passengers Vehicles sold in Indonesia have been 94.406 down 4.9% from the correspondent period last year, posting the seventh year-on-year decline in a string.

Hit by negative economic environment, the market keeps declining and it is expected to not change direction before the second half and only in case of positive signals from the economic side. In the first quarter total new light vehicles sales had been 264.385, down 10.0% from last year.

Competitive Arena

Thanks to the powerful line up and strong local image, Toyota has been able to grow also in this quarter selling 86.182 light vehicles (+12.2%) gaining share up to 32.6%, one of the best ever and creating a huge gap with the second, the family brand Daihatsu, that fell 6.7% in the quarter with 47.981 sales. Over 50% of the market is taken by Toyota Group!

Albeit losing one spot in March, Honda managed to defend the third step with quarterly sales at 37.568 (+4.1%) while Suzuki dropped 20.4% at 33.636 units. The low demand for commercial vehicles hit Mitsubishi (-45.6%) and Isuzu (-44.7%) while Ford was the hero of the quarter more than doubling sales.

As far as best-selling models ranking, the leader was again the old Toyota Avanza despite scoring a sharp lost with 13.120 sales (-19.6%) ending the quarter down 22.1%, Second was the Daihatsu Gran Max with 6.149 units (+50.2%) ending a roaring quarter (+68.9%).
