China Commercial Vehicle Demand Continues Softening in Q3

China Commercial Vehicle Demand Continues Softening in Q3

According to the latest research, the pace of China’s economy slowed in Q3’14, with growth of 7.3% on a year over year basis. 

This economic cooling, albeit subtle could act as a constraint on commercial vehicle demand in China for Q3.

“Investments, which drive truck demand, were relatively strong, but experienced some cooling in Q3,” said Frank Maly, Director – CV Transportation Analysis and Research at ACT, which issued the findings.

“Heavy and medium truck markets will remain subdued in the near-term. The renewal of government subsidies supporting alternative energy buses will buttress the alternative fuel share of that market in the future,” Maly added.

For perspective, full-year 2013 real GDP growth was 7.7%, down slightly from 7.8% in 2012, 9.3% in 2011 and 10.4% in 2010.
