Spain 2017. Market up 8%, best in a decade

Spanish Car Market
Seat-Arona-2018

Spanish autos market ended the best year in the decade with +6.3% sales in December. The full year results at 1.24 million car passenger’s sold kept the momentum with a continue growth in the last 5 years. Renault is market leader.

Spanish economy has stood its ground in the fourth quarter, despite heightened uncertainty linked to the political environment in Catalonia. Incoming data shows that the negative economic impact stemming from the crisis has been limited to the region, with growth momentum largely intact in the wider Spanish economy. In November, employment growth as measured by Social Security affiliations remained buoyant, the Economic Sentiment Indicator reached its highest print in nearly two years and the composite PMI inched up on upbeat operating conditions among manufacturers. Despite the resilient economic picture, the political impasse is unlikely to be resolved soon, following snap elections in Catalonia on 21 December. The vote yielded a similar result than in the previous election in 2015, with the three secessionist parties obtaining a narrow majority in the regional parliament. The results are bruising for the Spanish government, which had called the early election in the hopes of depriving the secessionists of their ruling majority.

Spanish vehicles market is recovering year-after-year since the tremendous fall reported after the 2009 crisis, when volume dropped by over the half. The government have sustained the recovery of the industry, crucial for a market that is the second major auto producer in Europe, with an incentive plan called PIVE, which sustain the scrap of old vehicles when purchasing a new one. The program has been modulated across the years becoming a stable sustain to the domestic market, that in the last five years grew up from less than 700.000 cars in 2012 to over 1.1 million last year. In the 2018 car passenger’s sales are projected over the 1.3 million.
