BMI View: Central and Eastern European markets will be the strongest performers heading into 2017, with key Western European states such as Spain and the UK providing some of the biggest risks.
- Vehicle sales growth forecast for 2016 has been revised up slightly to 4.6% from 3.4% previously, with higher growth expected in both the passenger and commercial vehicle segments.
- We now forecast a short-term decline in UK sales as a response to eroding consumer and business confidence and rising prices on the back of a weaker currency after the EU referendum.
- Central and Eastern European states will be the outperformers, in line with our global view of merging markets over developed markets heading into 2017.
