Auto Leasing, Loans & Sales Financing in the US
Sustained macroeconomic growth over the five years to 2018 has led to increased demand for the Auto Leasing, Loans and Sales Financing industry. Consumers are most active in this industry when they anticipate future income stability. In addition, a decrease in interest rates reduces financing costs and incentivizes larger purchases, thereby fueling industry demand. Rising consumer sentiment and declining unemployment translated into higher auto sales and rising car prices during the five-year period. Key economic indicators, particularly consumer confidence and strong demand to replace aging vehicles, boded well for industry operators during the five-year period. Over the five years to 2023, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to increase. Given the industry's reliance on consumption patterns, more accessible credit markets, relatively low unemployment and higher income will continue to spur industry growth.
