Russia Vehicles Sales in February 2017

Russia Vehicles Sales in February 2016 again down in double-digit albeit Government projects the 2016 at -5%. Indeed, the data on Russia economy are worse than expected with consumption’s fallen 10% last year.

Economic Outlook

Russia’s economy contracted 3.7% in 2015, according to a preliminary estimate. Although a breakdown by components of expenditure is not available, the economic downturn was primarily driven by a sharp plunge in private consumption, which is expected to have contracted 10.1% in the full year.

Retail sales fell 9.7% in 2015 as a whole. The main driver behind the plunge, and thus the drop in private consumption, was the sharp weakening of the ruble and the subsequent spike in inflation, which caused real wages to decrease nearly 10% last year. Another factor weighing on the economy in 2015 was a substantial deterioration in fixed investment as commodities producers cut capital spending in response to international sanctions and lower prices.

In an effort to support oil prices, Russia and Saudi Arabia, along with Venezuela and Qatar, have agreed to an oil production freeze. Russia and Saudi Arabia account for nearly a fifth of global output and the two nations ramped up oil production in 2015 in a mutually damaging fight for market share.

Market Outlook

According to data released by the AEB, the Association of European Businesses in Russia, in February the domestic car sales have felt at 111.145 units, down 13.4% from the same month last year  and scoring the 35th year-on-year fall out of the last 38 months.

The recent data get on Russian economic speed – reported above – gives more explanation on the collapse of domestic demand for new cars and give low hopes for a recovery in this year. The Russian Government has released a forecast for the 2016 when the market should fall 5% from the previous year.
