Indonesia has the largest vehicle market in South-east Asia, with total vehicle sales of just over 1m in 2015. The automotive sector is an important pillar of domestic manufacturing, supported by increasing foreign direct investment. In 2015 vehicle production (excluding motorcycles) fell to just under 1.1m units, comprising 824,445 passenger cars and 274,335 commercial vehicles.

Trends in the automotive industry are driven by interest rates, fuel price movements, the exchange rate and economic growth. Passenger-car sales plunged by over 16% in 2015, while sales of commercial vehicles, which had already fallen in 2014, slumped by 15.8%. The key factors behind the declines were slowing economic growth, depreciation of the rupiah, tighter lending criteria for automotive purchases and cuts to fuel subsidies.

The Economist Intelligence Unit expects passenger-vehicle sales to expand slightly in 2016, before returning to stronger growth in 2017-20. That expansion will be supported by firmer economic growth and a somewhat stronger rupiah, but the removal of petrol price subsidies, a reduction in diesel price subsidies and an anticipated pick-up in global oil prices will constrain the increase in new registrations.
