Malaysia has one of the most well-developed automotive industries in the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and will remain an important regional market for motor vehicles and parts in 2015-19.

Sales growth continued its downward trend from the second half of 2014 after Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM, the central bank) lifted its policy interest rate. Additionally, the introduction of a 6% goods and services tax (GST) in April 2015 pulled forward sales, resulting in a sudden downturn since April.

Overall vehicle sales fell to 51,254 units in May, down by 8.4% year on year, while sales over the first five months of the year were down 3.6% over the same period of 2014. However, the negative effects of the tax will wane, while the effect of somewhat higher interest rates in 2015-19 will be more than offset by solid economic growth and rising incomes.
