Medium-Term Market Trend

Following a rapid development in the first years of this century, Qatari light vehicles market reached the all time record in the 2014, hitting the 100,000 milestone.

However, the fall of oil price in the international market and the consequent restrictive economic policy and new taxes (including VAT) introduction, hit the consumer demand and the market declined by the half in 2015-2019 period.

When Covid 19 restrictions limited the activities in 2020, the market fell down at the lowest in last 15 years at only 40.000 sales. However, the recovery was immediate in 2021, pushed by demand generated by the organization of FIFA World Championship.
