Bahrain Autos Report Q2 2016

BMI View: The combination of a slowing economy, lower oil prices and higher local interest rates has ledto BMI adopting a more cautious view of the Bahraini new vehicle sales market in 2016. We expect 3.0%sales growth for the sector this year, with commercial vehicles to underperform passenger carsKey Views

Over 2016-2020, we expect new vehicle sales to show growth of 23%, to take annual new vehicle salestowards the 90,000 unit mark.

We expect stronger performance from passenger cars (+23.4%) than commercial vehicles (+19.7%) overour forecast period.

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

Japanese carmaker Toyota retains its long-held local market leadership, accounting for almost half of thetotal market in Bahrain.

Toyota produced the six most popular vehicles sold in country over 2015, with its Land Cruiser, Hilux,Prado, Hiace, Corolla and Yaris models.
