Indonesia Vehicle Market

Indonesia Vehicle Market fell 9% in May 2014, albeit observers positive expectations. The market is penalized by low consumer’s demand after having more than doubled sales from 2009 and 2013 surging in World’s 14th place.

Car sales are expected to be stagnant due to Indonesia’s higher interest rate environment (Bank Indonesia raised its benchmark interest rate gradually from 5.75% in June 2013 to 7.5% in November 2013), high inflation (7.3% in May 2014), the sharply depreciated rupiah exchange rate in 2013 (which makes imports of car components more expensive) as well as the slowing economy (GDP slowed to 5.2% in Q1 2014). The higher interest rate environment is expected to continue throughout 2014, while inflation expected to ease further in the months ahead and may be kept within the central bank’s target range of 3.5 to 5.5 percent for 2014. Approximately 75% of total Indonesian car sales involve credit loans from a financial.
