Car sales will rise by an average of 1.8% a year in 2015-19, reaching 5.1m units in 2019. However, the impact of another consumption tax increase in October 2017 will mean that monthly sales tail off in the remainder of that year and into 2018.

Growth in commercial-vehicle sales (including trucks and buses) is forecast to exceed that of passenger-car sales in 2015-19, rising by an average of 2.5% a year, to reach 978,000 units by the end of the forecast period.

Japanese car manufacturers, led by Toyota, regained ground in the global car market in 2012-14, but the absence of further significant yen depreciation during the forecast period will constrain additional gains in their competitive position.
