Ivory Coast Car Market

Ivory Coast Car Market in 2017 kept momentum improving near 9% with the country among the fastest growing in Africa with GDP up 8%. While the market leader Toyota has lost sales for the second year, Renault jumped in second place.

Côte d’Ivoire’s economic performance has been impressive over the past years with a robust GDP growth which resulted in a decline in poverty. Throughout 2017, the country’s annual growth estimates hovered around 8%. A large part of the plan is the ambition to go from the world’s largest raw cocoa exporter to actually manufacturing and marketing its own chocolate and while steps have been down in this way, declined prices of raw material have did not help.

New vehicles market development was steady in recent years with volume grew up from 7.500 in the 2012 to 9.796 in the 2017, of which near 10% represented by HCVs.
