Market Report, "Philippines Autos Report Q4 2015", published

Based on latest sales figures from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) and the Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA), auto sales in the Philippines rose 18.1% year-on-year (y-o-y) in May 2015, to 23,139 units. This brought auto sales for the first five months of the year to 107,280 units, an increase of 20.1% y-o-y. We forecast full-year sales growth forecast of 13.2% as high base effects will temper growth slight in the coming months.

The country's consumer story continues to grow from strength to strength. According to the CAMPI President Rommel Gutierrez, the consistent growth in sales is largely due to attractive and flexible financing options and new models introduced by several brands. With our Country Risk team forecasting the central bank policy rate to remain at 4.0% in 2015 and only rise by 25 basis points in 2016, affordable credit will continue to underpin demand for cars.

For the first five months of the year, Toyota Motor Philippines Corp remained the market leader with total sales of 47,794 units (44.6% market share). In second place was Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp with sales of 20,591 units (19.2%). Ford Motor Philippines took the third place with sales of 8,557 units (8.0%), while Isuzu Philippines Corp landed in fourth place with sales of 8,010 units (7.5%). Honda came in fifth place with sales of 6,785 units (6.3%).


Meanwhile, we maintain our outlook for vehicle production, forecasting production to grow 14.4% in 2015 (based on OICA figures), with demand for autos still largely being fulfilled by imports. Automakers mainly operate assembly plants rather than fully developed manufacturing facilities, as a weak supplier base has resulted in car manufacturers having to import vehicle parts, raising production costs.
