Yemen Cars Market

Yemen Cars Market in the 2018 has improved 37.8%, signing the second year of growth in a row, ending with registrations at 5.231. Toyota has dominated the market with 91.6% of market share, closing with 4.794 units sold.

Economic Environment

The government and Houthi rebels agreed to a ceasefire in early December, brokered under the guidance of the UN. Both parties withdrew forces from the besieged port city of Hodeidah, which historically has brought most food and fuel supplies into Yemen and is currently a stronghold of the Houthi rebels. Another round of UN-backed talks is scheduled at the end of January, during which a framework for political negotiations is to be discussed.

This year the economy is expected to return to growth for the first time in six years, although this is primarily due to a miserably-low base effect.
