Includes 3 FREE quarterly updatesAccording to the China Association Of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), vehicle sales in June 2014 rose 5.2% year-on-year (y-o-y), to 1,845,800 units, bringing sales for H114 to 11,683,100 units, an increase of 8.4% y-o-y. It is important to note, however, that sales in June grew at the smallest y-o-y pace since March 2013 and were dragged down by the commercial vehicle (CV) segment, which contracted 19.7% yo- y in the same month. While we are maintaining our passenger car sales forecast for 2014, we are downgrading our CV sales forecast due to the segment's poor performance year-to-date.

Economic Rebalancing Biting Into CV Demand
As fixed-asset investment slows and infrastructure spending cools (in part due to Beijing's reticence towards large-scale stimulus to prop up economic growth), it is only natural that demand for CVs will be hit, given their usage in the various Chinese industrial sectors. Despite having a downbeat outlook on the segment for some time (see 'Passenger Car Sales To Bring In A Strong 2013', October 17 2013), the sharp y-o-y decline in CV sales in the past two months has been more pronounced than expected.
