BMI believes the outlook is very bright for the Thai automotive industry as we enter 2013. The industry has bounced back strongly from the damage caused by the heavy flooding in Q411, which closed several domestic production lines and caused extensive damage to supply chains across Asia. Barring any unforeseen circumstances (such as a repeat of the flooding), the Thai auto industry looks set for a recordbreaking sales and production performance in 2012. On a longer-term basis, the Thai auto sector looks set for strong growth across our newly extended forecast period to 2017.

Looking at the most recent monthly sales data, it is clear that demand for new cars remains strong in Thailand. September 2012 data from the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) showed a 52.5% increase year-on-year (y-o-y) to hit 132,680 units, an all time-high. Cumulative sales for the first nine months of 2012 are up by almost 50%, at 998,717 units, putting the country well on track to hit BMI's forecast of 1.33mn units, a growth rate of 72.6%. As such, BMI is maintaining its forecasts this quarter and believes that the remaining three months of 2012 will continue to experience strong annual growth rates. READ MORE >
