According to Renault Group, which tracks industry sales in Zimbabwe, domestic auto sales contracted by26.6% year-on-year (y-o-y) in February to 431 units.
This brought sales for the first two months of 2015 to862 units, a decline of 26.6% y-o-y.Total domestic auto sales fell by 10.3% to 7,048 units in 2014 and we have downgraded our 2015 salesestimate, seeing the market contracting by 15.0% (versus our previous forecast for an increase of 5.0%).One major headwind we see for sales over the next few years is the recent increase in duties on car imports.While we believe this move is also influenced by the government's intention to develop the local autosector, we have previously voiced our view that the local production industry has too many flawedfundamentals to support the demand created by such protectionist policies.This has prompted us to downgrade our sales forecasts over the 2015-2019 period and we now expect onlymodest annual average sales decline of -0.8% over this period.
