BMI View: Over the past quarter, we have become increasingly bearish on the short-term outlook for new vehicle sales. We now forecast a 30% fall in sales over 2016, although luxury brands will outperform.

Key Views
  • Most Kuwaitis are putting off new vehicle purchases at the current time, given continued low oil prices, a sluggish economy and the likelihood of higher interest rates as we move into 2017.
  • This has seen most of the volume carmakers selling in Kuwait see double-digit sales declines over 2016 to date.
  • Our view that Kuwait will retain strong demand for luxury cars has been borne out by the relatively strong performance of luxury brands compared to volume marques over 4M16.
