Subprime Auto Loans
Over the five years to 2019, operators in the Subprime Auto Loans industry contended with rising interest rates and increasing delinquency rates, which took a toll on profit margins for many operators. Several small, specialized creditors have been pushed to bankruptcy due to diminishing profitability and a growing number of subprime auto loan delinquencies. Furthermore, rising interest rates increased borrowing costs for subprime consumers over the past five years, slowing demand for industry financing to purchase vehicles and dampening profit for many lenders. As a result of these trends, industry revenue has declined during the current period. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is forecast to decline further. Industry growth will likely be restrained by rising interest rates over the next five years, which are projected to raise borrowing costs and slow vehicles sales.
Operators in this industry finance automobile purchases through loans and leases for subprime borrowers, defined as borrowers with a credit score below 600.
