World’s 25 slower car markets. Where to avoid investment saving money and heart!

Are you looking to invest in the automotive sector? In case, take care before starting any activity in one of the countries reported inside this ranking. Indeed, this special focus2move ranking regards the World’s 25 countries slower in first half 2013 compared with year ago.

The slowest market in the World was in Europe – as others 15 – and was the little Cyprus, collapsed 42% this year on top of 36% lost last year.

The second worst was Iran, the only country with registrations estimated on the base of production data, while third was Jordan, due to the government decision to apply a de-regulation of oil products price.

Economic recession in mature markets is the reason for the decline of the group of Europeans markets, including France, Italy, Netherlands and Ukraine, while specific local reasons are behind the loss of the others.

Japan, the third biggest market worldwide, was down after the scrap incentive push last year, while reasons for the decline of India are deep and would have effect in the medium terms.

In the table below, the list of World’s 25 slower car markets, in first half 2013, as year on year trend:
