Malawi Vehicles Sales in 2015 rose 5%. The market is still one of the smallest world-wide. It is dominated by pick ups and Toyota is leader handling over the half of total market.
The spatial dimensions of poverty and development in Malawi are manifested in regional and rural-urban variations in the incidence of poverty, access to services, pattern of resource endowment and economic opportunities. While the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy II (MGDS II) makes no explicit reference to spatial planning, it seeks to redistribute wealth to all citizens by using rural growth centres to serve as socio-economic hubs, thereby reducing rural-urban migration.
Growth in 2015 is projected to slow to 5.5% following the late arrival of rains and the severe floods experienced in January 2015, which damaged crops and infrastructure. Growth momentum is expected to resume in 2016, with projected growth of 5.7%, assuming improved investor confidence, favorable weather conditions, higher agricultural exports, lower inflation and moderate interest rates.
According to data released by the Association of Car Importers, in the 2015 total vehicles sold in Malawi had been 1.663, up 4.8%.
The market is dominated by pick-ups and SUV, mainly made in Japan. Toyota was the market leader selling 862 vehicles or 51.8% of total market. The second player was Ford, thanks to the pick up Ranger, with 227 sales while the third was Nissan, with 166 units.
