New Market Report: Greece Autos Report Q1 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sat Jan 10 2015

BMI attributes growth in vehicle sales over the year-to-date to low base effects and pent-up demand in the market following years of sustained declines. We expect these dynamics to continue into 2015, despite our relatively sanguine outlook on the Greek economy.

Passenger car sales in Greece increased 22.2% year-on-year in the first ten months of 2014, to 59,847 units. BMI attributes this growth over the year-to-date to low base effects and pent-up demand in the market following years of sustained declines.

Unemployment remains high, consumer sentiment is weak, and retail sales continue to fall. We expect these dynamics to continue over the year as the economic malaise, combined with austerity measures and political uncertainty, continues. These dynamics weighed on passenger car sales for much of 2013, but the segment rebounded somewhat in the final months of the year on the back of pent-up demand in the market and low base effects. BMI expects these dynamics to continue to buoy the market over the course of 2014 despite the generally bearish macro picture.

CV sales in Greece declined 4% in 2013, a far more moderate drop-off than the steep declines witnessed in this segment in recent years. BMI believes that this modest respite comes on the back of low base effects from a weak 2012 and pent-up demand from several years of sustained declines. We expect these dynamics to buoy the segment somewhat in 2014 despite our bearish view on the broader macro picture, and this has informed our forecast for 19.9% growth in total CV sales over the year.
