Business Monitor International's Zimbabwe Autos Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, auto associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Zimbabwe's automotive industry.

Zimbabwe's vehicle market is similar to many of its regional peers in that the used car segment accounts for the majority of vehicles on the road. That said, the government has been looking to introduce measures aimed at reducing the number of used vehicles imported into the country, both for the sake of improving safety standards and reducing pollution. The restrictions have been coupled with car loans for civil servants to encourage car purchases, although there may be limits on how far this can boost new car sales.

BMI believes the loans for civil servants will not only address the issue of public workers struggling with living costs, but also give a lift to the autos sector. Some dealers have been voicing frustration at the government's move to ban certain categories of second-hand imports, allegedly without consultation, and also argue that many consumers would be priced out of the market.
