Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/06/2014 -- BMI View: In 2014, we forecast a 2.2% increase in vehicle sales. This comes from a 2% forecasted uptick in the passenger car segment, and 3.2% increase in commercial vehicle (CV) sales.
BMI maintains our existing forecast for 2.0% growth in the passenger car segment in 2014. We expect pent-up demand following several years of declines and low base effects from 2013 to boost the market over the course of the year, although we caution that the weak consumer story may serve to dampen sentiment for big-ticket purchases.
Autos production in France is increasingly unattractive due to high labour costs. BMI believes that significant job cuts will be necessary across the supply chain. The decline in France's industrial competitiveness is a fundamental issue facing President Fran?ois Hollande.
The France Autos Report features the latest data and forecasts covering production, sales, imports and exports.
