Japan Vehicles Market in April 2016

Japan Vehicles Market in April 2016 stopped the 15 months long decline albeit with a really little growth. However it was a positive sign in a falling economy. Toyota pushed up 34% of share by new Prius.

Market Outlook

Although the economy managed to avoid recession in Q1, this was mainly due to the positive impact of the extra day in February as 2016 is a leap year. Moreover, economic data suggest that growth remains subdued as a strong yen and a feeble global economic recovery are weighing on Japan’s economic activity.

Meantime, the domestic vehicles market reported in April the first “black” data after 15 months of consecutive year on year falls.

Indeed, according to the data released by the JADAJAMA and JAIA, (the Japanese Associations of car manufacturers, importers and dealers), in April new vehicles sales were 324.015 units, up 1.6%.

Not enough to recover on yearly basis. In fact the Year o Date sales at April were 1.791.252, down -5.4%.
