Italy 2017. Citroen shines in a market at best since 2008

Italian Auto Market

Italian Auto Market up 7.1% in the 2017, despite losing 2% in the last month, hitting the best level since the 2008. Citroen was the fastest growing brand, thanks to the new C3, stable on podium in the second half, while Hybrids push up Toyota.

Italian economy gained traction in Q3, growing at the fastest annual rate in more than five years. Although a complete breakdown is not yet available, the strong expansions recorded in the industrial sector throughout the quarter suggest that robust fixed investment drove the acceleration. On 27 October, S&P Global Ratings revised Italy’s credit rating up from BBB- to BBB, citing declining risks in the banking sector, stronger investment and steady employment growth. According to leading indicators, momentum seems to have carried over into Q4: Both business and consumer confidence improved in October, and the manufacturing PMI hit a multi-year high on the back of expansions in both output and new orders—especially from abroad.

Italian vehicles market fell down in the period 2008-2011 hitting a thirty years record low, before starting to recover. In the last 5 years car passenger’s volume grew up from 1.4 million in the 2012 to 1.8 million in the 2016 and finally at 1.964.000 in the 2017, with a total light vehicles figures hitting the 2.14 million. Outlook for 2018 is still positive and the market is foreseen above the 2 million units again, after a decade.
