Passenger car sales in Bulgaria increased 25.2% y-o-y in 4M14, to 6,478 units. Despite this strong growth, BMI maintains a bearish outlook on consumer sentiment and private consumption growth in the country. We expect weak domestic demand conditions in Bulgaria to persist, as business and consumer confidence levels remain subdued. Although there have been some signs of a modest recovery in consumer confidence, it remains in firmly negative territory. Moreover, high political uncertainty and deflationary monetary conditions mean that we are sceptical that a notable recovery in household consumption is afoot (see 'Weak Domestic Demand Conditions To Persist', May 14).

We attribute this sharp 4M14 uptick to low base effects from weak 2013 sales, pent-up demand as the market recovers to pre-crisis volumes, and the low sales volumes (as relatively modest increases in unit sales can lead to sharp y-o-y increases in the growth rate). We expect to see a slowdown in the growth rate over the coming months as this weak private consumption outlook weighs on car sales, and maintain our forecast for a 10% increase in sales.
