New Study: Italy Autos Report Q4 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Oct 30 2015

As our 2015 and 2016 outlooks for real GDP and private consumption growth in Italy start to improve, we expect sales growth to come to all vehicle segments. We forecast total vehicle sales growth to be 10.1% in 2015. Low base effects, aggressive marketing campaigns by automakers and the growing need for fleet replacement of out-dated vehicles will all provide the strongest supports to vehicle sales volumes over the year.

We identify the passenger car segment as the industry's outperformer in 2015 and forecast 10.2%. The segment will outperform the commercial vehicle (CV) market - which we forecast to grow 8.9% - owing to the rise in consumer spending outpaces the slow recovery in fixed investment in the country. Factors specific to the passenger car sector segment will also spur the expansion of the segment. These being (a) the growing need to replace out-dated cars and (b) aggressive discounting campaigns by automakers.

However, CV sales will continue to expand with the help of government-subsidised loans to enterprises seeking to expand their capital expenditure on CVs and other capital goods, this will provide the main boost to heavy truck sales which we forecast to grow 6.3%. The sector will also gain from the growing demand for Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) thanks to the expansion of online retailing which relies heavily on van deliveries for its logistics. We forecast LCV sales to expand 9.0% in 2015.
