July vehicle sales in Thailand down 11.6%, production up 37.5% (detailed report)
According to MarkLines Data Center, July vehicle sales in Thailand decreased 11.6% year over year to 52,442 units and 15.1% month over month. The drop was attributed to the COVID-19 lockdown from the mid of July, causing customers to be more cautious with their spending, as well as car deliveries’ postponement or cancelation. Other negative factors included the more strictness in auto loan approval process of financial institutions and lacking of some car models due to parts shortage. Current loan rejection rate is around 50%, up from 5-10% before pandemic.
January - July sales were up 9.7% to 425,633 units.
By brand sales in July, Toyota was down 2.9% to 17,040 units. Isuzu was down 11.6% to 13,680 units and Honda was up 15.3% to 6,958 units. Mitsubishi sales were down 34.9% to 3,205 units and MG sales were down 2.9% to 2,246 units.
By body type, passenger cars were down 9.8% year over year to 16,689 units. Commercial vehicle sales were down 12.4% to 35,753 units. Pickup truck (including PPV) sales included in the commercial vehicle sales were down 15.0% to 27,816 units.
The FTI announced that new vehicle production in July was 122,852 units, 37.5% increase from the low figure in July 2020 amid the spread of coronavirus. Compared to June 2021, it was down 8.5% due to a shortage in semiconductors and other auto parts in some car models. January - July production was up 39.1% to 967,453 units.
Vehicle exports in July were up 42.4% to 70,590 units year over year but down 15.0% month over month. FTI said vehicle shipment to the Middle East, Europe, and African markets dropped due to the new wave of coronavirus, while auto sales decline was also recorded in several Thailand’s trading partner countries. However, as car production plants in some of those countries have already started returning to operation, Thailand’s exports of engine and other auto parts also increased YoY. Vehicle exports from January to July were up 36.0% to 544,079 units.
