Kuwait Autos Report Q2 2016 - New Market Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Mar 31 2016

A combination of a slowing economy , low oil prices and higher local interest rates continues to underpi n BMI's cautious stance towards the Kuwaiti new vehicle sales market in 2016. We are targeting just 0.5 % sales growth for the sector.

Key Views

This quarter, BMI has extended its forecast period to 2020.

Over this period, we expect new vehicle sales to show growth of 17%, a somewhat lower rate of growth than its GCC peers that reflects its less impressive economic growth fundamentals on a regional basis

A prolonged period of low global oil prices continues to pose a downside risk to our forecasts to 2020.
