Malaysia 2017. Honda & BMW shine in a shy market

Malaysia Cars Sales July 2016

Malaysia auto sales in 2017 moderately declined, for the second consecutive year, with domestic brands still losing terrain and Japanese gaining. Perodua still market leader while the stars of the year had been Honda and BMW.

Malaysia’s economy recorded unexpectedly strong annual GDP growth in Q3, posting its most robust expansion in over three years on broad-based gains across the real and external sectors. Domestic demand was propelled by upbeat activity in the manufacturing and services sectors, which both accelerated from the previous quarter. Vibrant household spending signaled the continued health of the private sector and tight labor market dynamics. An acceleration in public spending from a quarter earlier also contributed to the robust fixed investment dynamics on display in Q3.

Malaysian vehicles market grew up uninterruptedly from 2012 to 2015 hitting the all-time record with 666.000 units, before to decline in the 2016 at 583.000 and again in the 2017. Indeed, according to data released by the M.A.A., the Malaysian Automotive Association, total vehicles sales in 2017 have been 576.658 (-0.8%).
