- The new cars market consists of the initial retail sale/registration of new passenger cars. Passenger cars include saloons, hatchbacks, SUVs, 4x4s and other related vehicles. The market value is calculated at retail selling price (RSP) and the market volume is given in terms of units sold. Market shares consist of motor manufacturing groups as opposed to their individual brands, i.e. for the Volkswagen Group this includes all of its brands such as Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Seat etc. Any currency conversions used in this report have been calculated at constant 2016 annual average exchange rates.
- The Japanese new cars market had total revenues of $105,075.4m in 2016, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -1.1% between 2012 and 2016.
- Market consumption volumes declined with a CARC of -2.4% between 2012 and 2016, to reach a total of 4,146.5 thousand units in 2016.
- The shrinkage of the Japanese market in recent years is attributable to the overall stagnation of the economy since 2014. The decline of registration volumes was limited in 2016, since consumer confidence improved by the amelioration of macroeconomic figures in the previous year. Moreover, the market value recovered in 2016, due to a distortive tax hike on the sales of small cars, domestically known as “kei cars”. Accordingly, demand for this low-cost type of car has declined since 2015, while the average price of cars sold increased, inflating the market value.
