According to the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA), auto sales rose 0.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) in June 2014 to 452,555 units. We highlighted in April that we expected sales to take a hit after the hike in the national consumption tax on April 1 and, true enough, sales contracted in April and May (see 'Auto Sales Set To Decline As Tax Hike Bites', April 4). That said, the decline in sales was not as sharp as we expected and this has prompted us to revise our full-year forecast upwards.

Initial signs indicate that the market is weathering the sales tax hike well and June sales figures have brought H114 sales to 3,005,806 units, an increase of 10.8% y-o-y. The double-digit increase is attributable to the strong Q114 as consumers frontloaded their vehicle purchases ahead of the sales tax hike. With demand remaining resilient even after the tax increase, however, we are upgrading our full-year vehicle sales growth forecast from 0.8% to 3.6%.
