Philippines Vehicles Sales Statistics

Philippines Vehicles Sales Statistics reported a new record in H1 2015 despite June sales fell 4% first time after 19th winning times. The year is foreseen on the sky. Toyota Vios is the best-selling model.

Economic Outlook

Economic growth was weaker than expected in Q1 and slowed to 5.2% as it was restrained by sluggish exports and government spending. More recent data sent mixed signals: while remittances growth sped up slightly in May, exports recorded a steep drop.

In July, President Benigno Aquino approved the record USD 66 billion budget proposal for 2016—his last year in office—which envisages a spending increase of 15% over 2015.

Improving the country’s underdeveloped infrastructure, which is essential for growth in the medium and longer term, along with social welfare programs remain the focal points.

However, it is uncertain whether the next administration will actually be able to fully implement planned initiatives as the government has fallen short of spending targets since 2011, partly owing to bureaucratic hurdles.

Market Outlook

The automotive sector in Philippines is booming since over ten years albeit still poor infrastructures. However, despite the impressive speed of the growth with market booming at three-time the 2007 level, the propellent for growth is not over and future perspectives are still among the most brilliant worldwide.

After that in the 2014 the market hit again a record with sales above 269.000 units jumping in the 36th world place, in the current year the run looks unstoppable.

(CAMPI) and the Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA),  in the second quarter the market scored again positive growth with April sales up 30.7%, May up 2.7% and June down 4.3%, breaking a winning series of 19th month.
