Thailand is moderately recovering. New Honda Civic shines

thailand-vehicles-market-may-2016

Thailand is moderately recovering fueled by robust public spending and export activity. In May the auto industry reported a robust double-digit performance with the rest of the year outlook positive.

Market Outlook

In the first quarter 2016, the Thai economy accelerated over the previous quarter amid robust government spending and an improvement in the external sector’s contribution to overall growth. However, more recent data show that economic activity remains fragile. In April, manufacturing production decelerated and exports swung to contraction.

After the slowdown in sales posted during the first quarter, the performance of April and May has warmed the scenario. In fact, while April sales recovery was feeble, May sales had been reported up in double-digit.

According to data released by the T.A.I.A, the Thai Automotive Industry Association, in April the vehicles passenger sold had been 54.986 (+1.6%) followed by the great performance of May with 66.035 units, up 15.8%.

Year to date new vehicles sales decreased to 302.581, down 2.1% compared to the same period of the previous year.

In May the brand leader was – of course – Toyota with 22.244 sales  (+23.8%) and 33.7% of market share. Isuzu was second with 12.757 units (+17.3%) ahead of Honda with 9.812 (+10.6%), Mitsubishi with 4.274 (+26.6%), Nissan with 3.856 (+2.7%).

As far as the Car Groups performance, the leader was Toyota with 34.9% of market share, ahead of Isuzu Motors with 19.3%, Honda with 14.9% and Mitsubishi with 6.6%.
