Qatar Vehicle Market

Qatar Vehicle Market ended the first half at the highest level ever pushed further up by a strong economy and robust consumer’s demand in the entry level segments. Toyota is keeping the most advantage gaining market share.

In June 2014 accordingly with data released by focus2move Research Team through local sources and manufacturers, total new Light Passengers Vehicles sold have been 8.252, up 10.8% from the correspondent month last year. In the first half sales have been 48.173, up 3.2% from year ago.  After a series of 52 consecutive year-on-year growing month, in May the market fell breaking the best winning series world-wide.

In the next month the Qatar economy could reduce the speed hit by a less positive global demand for petrol and the automotive sector could start a new trend less aggressive than in the past. Anyhow the forecast for the entire year are for a new record but for just few units compared with the 2013.

In the first half Toyota posted an amazing performance improving the market share at 34.3% well ahead of the first followed, the Japanese Nissan that was stable with 16.2% of share in line with 2013 performance. Third was the Korean Hyundai with 7.8% of market share, down over 1 point from year ago.
