sudan car market

Indonesian Vehicles Sales in June marginally improved, selling 54.877 units (+3.1%). All brands in the podium signed negative performances, with Daihatsu and Honda falling in double-digits. Mitsubishi and Isuzu ran with impressive pace, but the best performer was Nissan, booming 453.6%.


Economic Environment

Indonesian economic growth in the second quarter should have been broadly unchanged from that of the first quarter. Domestic signs are generally encouraging: Retail sales grew rapidly in April and May, likely supported by buoyant consumer confidence, while the manufacturing PMI averaged higher than in Q1. However, goods exports plummeted in April and May, while tourist arrivals stagnated over the same period, potentially dampened by recent floods.


Market Trend

Indonesian Vehicles market had spent four years on the sky, when, during the 2010-2013 the market scored four all time records in a row, almost doubling volume and not only outpacing the magic 1 million units quota, but landing at a 2013 record of 1.22 million vehicles (including HCVs) sales, before starting a negative period, with sales declined below the 1 million level in the 2015,
