Venezuela Autos Report

Vehicle sales in Venezuela declined 85.6% y-o-y, to 8,236 units, in the first six months of 2014 as the increasingly poor economic outlook impacts the sector. BMI is increasingly bearish on Venezuela's private consumption outlook, and we expect this to lead to a 95% drop in autos sales over the full year.

Vehicle production in Argentina declined 83.3% y-o-y in the first six months of 2014, to 6,161 units, as the domestic market contracts and the country's business environment deteriorates. BMI forecasts a 75% decline in output over the full year as these dynamics continue to hamper the sector.

BMI has long maintained a bearish outlook on vehicle production in Venezuela, as the government continues to intervene in the economy, further restricting access to foreign currency and implementing import restrictions on auto components. The ongoing weakness in the local currency will also serve to make supplier imports more expensive, further exacerbating the shortage of components. Furthermore, the worsening business environment makes profitable operations in the country increasingly difficult as the government seeks to limit profit margins for companies.

BMI has long maintained that in order to see sustained growth in vehicle production, the regulatory environment needs a complete overhaul, particularly in the issuance of assembly permits and access to foreign currency. This does not look likely, however, and Venezuela continues to rank below the regional average on BMI's Risk/Reward Ratings.
