2015 Thailand Automotive Market Outlook
Total industry volumes in Thailand shrank by a whopping % in 2014, closing at units.
Key market factors such as cascading effects of political volatility, global uncertainty, and underperforming economy worked in tandem to reduce demand.
Though there were depressed sales volumes throughout 2014, there were signs of recovery in November and December as consumer sentiment improved.
A declining total industry volume (TIV) in Thailand and Indonesia brought down regional sales by% to million units, even though Malaysia and the other ASEAN markets showed positive growth in 2014.
Though Indonesia became the largest automotive market in ASEAN, Thailand continued to be the largest automotive manufacturer in the region.
Implementation of ASEAN Economic Community and the restructuring of excise tax are expected to have a large impact on the automotive market demand in Thailand.
