BMI View: A combination of a slowing economy, low oil prices and higher local interest rates continues to underpin BMI's cautious stance towards the Kuwaiti new vehicle sales market in 2016. We are targeting just 0.5% sales growth for the sector.

Key Views
  • This quarter, BMI has extended its forecast period to 2020.
  • Over this period, we expect new vehicle sales to show growth of 17%, a somewhat lower rate of growth than its GCC peers that reflects its less impressive economic growth fundamentals on a regional basis
  • A prolonged period of low global oil prices continues to pose a downside risk to our forecasts to 2020.
  • In 2015, Japanese carmaker Toyota retained its long-held local market leadership, accounting for over a third of the total market in Kuwait. In 2015, the Japanese carmaker sold 55,802 units in country, for a market share of 37%, over three times its nearest rival Nissan.
  • Toyota made the five most popular models sold in the country over Q115, with its Prado, Hilux, Camry, Corolla and Land Cruiser models.
