Brazilian Vehicles Market in 2023 reported a total of 2.18 million sales, posting an 11.3% increase from the prior year. This overall uptrend was confirmed by a positive streak in the last 7 months. 

Market Trend and Outlook

Brazil’s economy has been surprisingly resilient this year. Deloitte states: “Inflation-adjusted wages continue to grow at a relatively rapid clip as consumer price growth slowed. More recently, the labor market has tightened, and consumer confidence has soared. As a result, consumer spending is growing at a respectable rate. Pushing inflation lower will be more challenging from here. A lack of improvement on the inflation front will likely restrain consumer spending as real wage growth and interest-rate cuts slow.”

This growth in consumer spending has pushed the Brazilian Vehicles Market higher and higher, which closed the year at 2.18 million sales, up 11.3% from the previous one. The month of December grew for the 7th month in a row with new registrations reaching 236,432 (+15.2%).
