Car dealers predict the weakening of demand and await state support


The Association "Russian Automobile Dealers" (ROAD) believes that the increased customer demand for cars, which is observed in the second half of this year, will begin to slow down at the beginning of next year.

“For today, the prospects for the next year look very cautious. Because we have a feeling that this unusual increased customer demand, which is observed in the Russian market in the second half of the year, is fizzling out. And there are assumptions that in the first quarter of the next year the situation will change dramatically with the consumer demand, and additional stimulation will be required in order to keep it somehow, so that there is no drop by the first quarter of the previous year, ”said the President of ROAD, Vyacheslav Zubarev.

To pass the next year "more worthily" and restore the market, its participants will need to make efforts, Mr. Zubarev believes. “Of course, you need to take control of costs and continue to work on rapprochement with the manufacturer in order to avoid unnecessary costs. And, of course, we count on government support, primarily in the part that stimulates customer demand. These are two key areas that will determine how successful the next year will be,” the head of ROAD believes.

Thomas Stärzel, Chairman of the Automobile Manufacturers Committee of the Association of European Businesses (AEB), added that the stability of legislation and tax policy, as well as localization requirements, can globally support the car market. According to the experts of the AUTOSTAT agency, in 2021 the automotive market in Russia may be 1.35 million new passenger cars, which will correspond to a fall of 5-6% in compare with this year. As the deputy head of the analytics department of the AUTOSTAT agency Viktor Pushkarev noted, the calculations were based on the forecast of the Ministry of Economic Development and the main macroeconomic indicators for 2021.
