Algeria Autos Report Q1 2015

Algeria Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

In November 2014, Renault is set to officially open its new Algerian production plant at Oued Tielat, with
the first Symbol model set to be coming off the production line on November 10 2014, just after this report
was written. BMI believes that the commencement of local production by Renault should prove
transformative for the local auto production and supply chain sectors and we will report fully on the official
launch of local product on in our next quarterly update.

China Autos Report Q1 2015

China Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

We believe that our generally downbeat outlook for China's economy will continue to weigh on auto sales,
while passenger vehicles will remain a bright spot for the sector. According to the China Association of
Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), auto sales growth for September 2014 came in at 2.5%, and for the
first nine months of 2014, auto sales have grown by 7.0% year-on-year (y-o-y) to 17.0mn units. The
slowdown in sales over the past months should continue, and we expect 2014 vehicle sales to grow by 6.0%

Colombia Autos Report 2015

Colombia Autos Report 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI forecasts vehicle sales in Colombia to increase 6% in 2014 on the back of steady improvements in the
economy and low base effects from declining sales in 2013. We expect this positive momentum to continue
into 2015, predicting another year of 6% growth. In terms of Colombia's vehicle production, we forecast
growth of 4.5% and 4.0% in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
In April 2014, the Colombian government announced plans to cut tariffs on imported autos components in a

India Autos Report Q1 2015

India Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

With Narendra Modi's election as prime minister of India bringing newfound political stability, coupled
with the strengthening economy across Q214, the outlook for the auto sector is positive as we enter 2015.
As such, we expect the recent recovery in vehicle sales to continue, driven by passenger vehicle sales
(includes cars, vans and SUVs), and have raised our growth forecast for this segment from 3.0% to 8.0% for
FY2014/15 (April-March). On the other hand, we expect a continued slowdown in the commercial vehicle

Kazakhstan & Uzbekistan Autos Report 2015

Kazakhstan & Uzbekistan Autos Report 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

BMI View: BMI's outlook on auto production and sales in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan remains positive,
despite a slowdown in sales figures in the first eight months of 2014. Both countries boast solid
macroeconomic fundamentals and both are seeing strong demand for cars from their citizens.
Turning to production first, Kazakh auto production looks set for strong growth over BMI's five-year
forecast period to 2017. This reflects new production plans by carmakers Toyota Motor and Russia's
AvtoVAZ and Kazakh AutoBIPEK.

Latvia Autos Report 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

2014 has proved a positive year for new vehicle sales within Latvia. Over the first nine months of the year,
passenger car (PC) sales were up by 19% year-on-year (y-o-y), at 9,239 units, according to figures from the
European Auto Manufacturers Association (ACEA).
On the commercial vehicle side, 8M14 figures from ACEA show a total of 1,658 light commercial vehicles
(LCVs) sold in country, with a further 754 medium and heavy commercial vehicles sold, plus a further 137
buses, for a total of 2,549 units sold year-to-date.

2014 has proved a very positive year for new passenger sales within Lithuania. Over the first nine months of
the year, passenger car (PC) sales were up by 24.5% year-on-year (y-o-y), at 11,071 units, according to
figures from the European Auto Manufacturers Association (ACEA).
However, on the commercial vehicle side, the sales performance has been less encouraging. 8M14 figures
from ACEA show a total of 1,328 light commercial vehicles (LCVs) sold in country, with a further 1,431

Pakistan Autos Report Q1 2015

Pakistan Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 26 2014

We believe that policies drawn up in the new federal budget will support the domestic auto industry, by
creating conditions for stronger sales. The new budget, coupled with our upbeat forecast for private
consumption and gross fixed-capital formation in the country, bodes well for both passenger cars and
commercial vehicles (CVs). While we have maintained our forecast for passenger vehicles, we have revised
our CV sales growth forecast to 9.4% in FY2014/15 (July-June) from 4.5% previously, bringing our overall

Argentina Autos Report Q1 2015

Argentina Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

Vehicle sales in Argentina declined 34.3% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the first nine months of 2014, to 472,044
units. BMI has become increasingly bearish on the outlook for the Argentine autos sector in 2014 on the
back of a devaluation of the peso in January, the likelihood of further weakness in the unit going forward, a
deteriorating macroeconomic environment, and new taxes on autos imports.
High inflation, slowing real wage growth, and increasing unemployment levels are likely to keep private

Cambodia and Laos Autos Report Q1 2015

Cambodia and Laos Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

The common theme in Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos is that used vehicles make up the overwhelming
majority of their auto markets. The low GDP per capita of these economies makes it difficult for consumers
to afford new cars. However, as long as carmakers maintain their expectations, we do see an advantage for
firms to develop a toehold in these frontier markets.
Over our 2014-2020 period, we forecast GDP per capita to exceed 6.0% annual growth in all these

Central America Autos Report Q1 2015

Central America Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: The outlook for the autos industry in the Central Americas region in 2014 is modest, with tepid
sales growth expected in some markets, but contractions likely in others. This is broadly in line with our
outlook for the Latin America region, although many markets in Central America are very small in volumes
terms, and modest changes in sales figures could have a relatively large impact on the year-on-year (y-o-y)
growth rate.
Income distribution across much of the region is highly unequal, and the majority of headline spending

Cote d'Ivoire Autos Report Q1 2015

Cote d'Ivoire Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

According to Renault, total industry auto sales in Cote d'Ivoire rose 10.8% year-on-year (y-o-y) in
September 2014, to 667 units. This brought total vehicle sales for 9M14 to 5,539 units, an increase of 3.9%
y-o-y.
The recent slowdown in sales has prompted us to downgrade our 2014 forecast from 12.0% to 5.0%, which
will see sales reach 6,746 units at the end of the year.
Côte d'Ivoire has suffered from chronic underinvestment following years of conflict and civil war. Its poor

Germany Autos Report Q1 2015

Germany Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

In 2013, vehicle sales in Germany declined 4% on the back of a 4.2% drop in the passenger car segment and
a 2.2% fall in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment. In 2014, we expect to see a return to growth in the
industry, with total vehicle sales forecasted to increase 2.8% over the year. This comes from an expected
2.0% increase in passenger car sales and a 10.5% increase in the CV segment.
In 2013, vehicle production in Germany increased 1.2% on the back of a 1.1% increase in the passenger car

Japan Autos Report Q1 2015

Japan Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

We reiterate our pessimistic outlook for Japan's domestic auto sales, as the sales tax hike (from 5.0% to
8.0%) in April resulted in auto sales growth being negatively impacted, prompting us to downgrade our
2014 overall vehicle sales forecast to 2.9% from 3.6% previously. In August, Japan saw the largest decline
in auto sales since 2011, as the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) announced that auto
sales tumbled 9.1% year-on-year (y-o-y) to 333,471 units. The slowdown appears to be broad based, as

Mexico Autos Report Q1 2015

Mexico Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI forecasts 6.0% growth in vehicle sales in Mexico in 2014 on the back of a 6.4% increase in passenger
car sales and 5.3% growth in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment. In 2015, we project vehicle sales
accelerate to 8% spurred by an expansion of 6.5% and 10.8% in the passenger car and CV markets,
respectively.
A rebound in private consumption in H214, has helped passenger car sales in Mexico increase 3.8% yearon-
year (y-o-y) over the first nine months of 2014 to 520,484 units. We expect this broader uptick in car

New Zealand Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

New Zealand's new vehicle sales market continues to strengthen. Over 9M14, total of 66,789 new passenger
cars and sports utility vehicles (SUVs) were sold, plus a further 27,694 commercial vehicles (CVs), to
produce a total new vehicle sales market total of 94,559 units, according to figures from New Zealand's
Motor Industry Association (MIA). On current sales trends, this puts the country well on course to meet
BMI's target of 124,850 units for the full year.

Tanzania Autos Report Q1 2015

Tanzania Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

We are revising our forecast for 2014 up to 80% due to new data availability. However, despite the latest
data from Renault indicating that sales of brand new Renault's increased 83% in the first nine months of
2014, BMI continues to predict steady growth (in the order of 3% a year) in new vehicle sales from 2015
onwards in Tanzania up to 2018. This owing to the markets erratic growth and low numbers of total sales.
Even with this growth, we believe that only 8,063 new vehicles will be sold in the country that year.

Venezuela Autos Report Q1 2015

Venezuela Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

Vehicle sales in Venezuela declined 83.6% year-on-year (y-o-y), to 13,419 units, in the first nine months of
2014 as the increasingly poor economic outlook impacts the sector. BMI is bearish on Venezuela's private
consumption outlook, and we expect this to lead to a 95% drop in autos sales over the full year.
Vehicle production in Argentina declined 82.3% y-o-y in the first nine months of 2014, to 10,286 units, as
the domestic market contracts and the country's business environment deteriorates. BMI forecasts a 75%

Botswana Autos Report Q1 2015

Botswana Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

BMI View: Due to the combination of monetary easing, historically low price pressures and a healthy
growth in consumer spending, BMI forecasts vehicle sales to grow by 3% in 2015. Total vehicle sales will
reach 36,580, with commercial vehicles being the best-performing market, growing at 8.5%, while the
passenger vehicle market recovers to 3.0%.
In 2015, we forecast that passenger vehicles will continue to be the worst-performing segment, although

Brazil Autos Report Q1 2015

Brazil Autos Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 12 2014

BMI forecasts a 0.5% drop in vehicle sales in 2015, as we expect the passenger car segment to drag down
total sales despite a very slowly recovering commercial vehicle (CV) segment.
We forecast a 1.9% decline in passenger car sales in 2015 with sales reaching 2.44mn units for the year.
This decline will come as growth in new passenger car purchases falls behind growth in consumer spending
due to car sales tax hikes weighing on demand.
In 2015, BMI expects to see 3.1% growth in light commercial vehicle (LCV) sales, a slowdown from strong
