Global Car Sales Projected To Plunge By 3.1 Million In 2019

The car sales worldwide are anticipated to see their highest yearly decline this year due to the financial crisis since consumer demand to China from the U.S. softened. The global car sales are projected to drop by almost 3.1 Million in 2019, which is a bigger decline than 2008, Fitch Ratings economics team stated, mentioning data assembled by the OICA (International Organisation of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers). The dropdown in auto sales is adding to a haul on international manufacturing, Fitch added. In a statement, Brian Coulton—Chief Economist from Fitch Ratings—reported, “The slowdown in the global car market ever since the middle of 2018 has been a major force behind the bend in international manufacturing and the car sales setting is turning out a lot poorer than we estimated earlier in May.”

The global passenger car sales drop from 81.8 Million new units sold (2017) to 80.6 Million (2018), which was the first yearly decline from 2009, Fitch said. Globally, sales this year seemed to fall by another 4% to almost 77.5 Million new vehicle sales. The reducing demand in China—which is the world’s biggest auto market—is a chief factor in the global decline this year. In China, the sales fell by 11% during the first 10 Months of 2019 relative to the same time as the last year. Coulton stated weak credit growth, a climb in used car sales and latest emissions standards lowered the new car sales in China.

Speaking of car sales, recently, it was stated that electric vehicle sales in California are on the rise. As the overall sales for new cars across California plunged dueling the third quarter of 2019, the combined market share for plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles in the Golden State persisted to surge. But, on the other hand, overall registrations for light-duty vehicles—such as cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks—declined by 5.1% in California throughout the first 9 Months of 2019 correlated to the first three quarters of 2018.
