2013-12-12 13:49:33 - Fast Market Research recommends "Germany Autos Report Q1 2014" from Business Monitor International, now available
We forecast a 4.3% decline in vehicle sales in 2013 due to a 4% drop in the passenger car segment, and 7.7% fall in CV sales. In 2014, BMI forecasts a decline of 1.8% as passenger car sales fall 1.7%, and the CV segment sees a drop of 2.9%.
A number of auto companies continue to offer large discounts and offers to potential consumers. This served to buoy sales in 2012 somewhat (moderating the decline, certainly), and is expected to have a similar effect in 2013. Such practices are prevalent across a number of European countries as car makers attempt to boost sales.
BMI forecasts a 0.2% increase in vehicle production in 2013, on the back of an expected 1% increase in
passenger car production over the year and an 8.9% drop in commercial vehicle (CV) output. In 2014, we expect to see a 1.9% increase in vehicle production as car output increases 2% and CV manufacturing increases 0.7%.
As the majority of the country's passenger car production is destined for export to Europe, sales in the regional market are a key determinant of growth. Over the year to date, passenger car sales have declined across Europe and this has served to weigh on German car output. However, the rate of decline has moderated over the course of 2013, in line with BMI's core view. We expect the regional market to continue to pick up over the remainder of the year, and this should help boost German car output.
