Car Sales Plummet by More Than 50% in Fiscal Year ’22-’23


Plunging Car Sales Figures

The already troubled auto industry in Pakistan is facing further challenges due to the ongoing economic downturn, which has resulted in automakers reducing production to cope with low inventories. According to the Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (PAMA), only 92,554 units were sold from July to May ’23, marking a significant decrease from the 210,633 cars sold in the previous year. In fact, car sales have plummeted by 56% compared to the same period last year, reflecting the distressing state of the industry.

Factors Contributing to the Decline

The condition of Pakistan’s auto industry is no secret, particularly in the past six months when production cuts and exorbitant price hikes took a toll. With prices soaring twice each month, potential customers found it nearly impossible to purchase a car. These measures have had a visible impact on the sales figures reported by PAMA. The declining numbers tell the tragic story of increasing inflation, difficulties in acquiring raw materials, and the imposition of regulatory duties on cars, all of which have pushed the car industry to the brink of collapse.

The Ripple Effect on the Economy

These figures also shed light on how the economic slump has eroded customer confidence and reduced spending power, painting a challenging picture for Pakistan’s auto industry. The sharp decline in auto sales has wide-ranging effects on both consumers and manufacturers, amplifying the negative consequences on the overall economy.

Interestingly, while the sales of cars and trucks experienced a decline, the buses sector witnessed a rise in sales figures. This improvement can largely be attributed to the various metro projects initiated throughout the country. Conversely, even the truck sector faced a 43.9% decrease in sales compared to the previous year.
