Japanese domestic vehicles industry moderately down in September.

Japanese domestic vehicles industry

Japanese domestic vehicles industry moderately down in September. The sector suffers the weak economy and export contraction. In the last month Nissan and Mazda fell in double-digit.

Market Outlook

GDP expanded 0.7% in Q2 over the previous quarter in seasonally adjusted annualized terms (SAAR). More recent data suggest that although growth will remain sluggish in the foreseeable future, the Japanese economy will benefit from a two-decade low unemployment rate and fresh spending envisaged in this year’s supplementary budget.

However exports contracted for the eleventh consecutive month in August, including the key automotive industry.

According to the data released by the JADAJAMA and JAIA, (the Japanese Associations of car manufacturers, importers and dealers), in September total new vehicles sales declined moderately  by 0.3% with 476.733 units.

Year to date September sales had been 3.765.950, down 3.4%.

Competitive Arena

In September, Toyota led the ranking with 144.152 sales (+10.7%) and with 30.2 % of market share. Honda was second with 70.129 (+3.4%) followed by Suzuki with 57.807 sales (-0.8%).

Behind, Daihatsu recovered a step from the previous month with 50.511 (-7.0%) ahead of Nissan with 47.354 (-16.3%), Mazda with 22.085 (-11.4%) and Subaru with 14.513 (-3.2%). Isuzu confirmed the 9th place, up 8.5% with 10.833 sales.
