BMI View:
A combination of tougher import regulations and a slowing economy continue to weigh on the outlook for the Omani new vehicle sales market in 2016. We expect a slight rebound in new vehicle sales growth (3.7%) in 2016, led by the luxury car segment of the market. However, this slight growth follows a 24.3% plunge in sales during 2015.


Key Views
- In 2016 we expect passenger car sales to grow 4.0% and commercial vehicles to grow 2.5%.
- The luxury car segment's growth will outstrip that of the volume car segment.
- Changes to calculations on used car import tariffs will price many consumers out of the market and have a devastating impact on the thriving second-hand import market.
- If Iranian and other foreign carmakers establish local production facilities, this could prove transformative in terms of developing local auto production and supply chain.
- Toyota is set to maintain local market leadership over 2016-2020.
