Thailand Used Car Market, Thailand Used Car Industry, Thailand

Increasing Internet Penetration: There were 52 million internet users in Thailand in January 2020 Internet penetration in Thailand was 75% during the same period. As the smart phone and internet penetration in Thailand is increasing, the used car dealers have been able to increase their footfall. They are using digitalization to make market offerings attractive. Digital platform provide online services such as photos and videos and instant finance which are drawing more customers into buying used cars.

The Concerns about Health from Using Public Transportation: Due to the onset of corona virus, public transport and ride sharing are no longer considered to be a safe option. Nowadays, more people are concerned about health and risk for severe illness from the virus, and as a result, used car is an alternative for prevent getting and spreading COVID-19 to keep social distance. In addition to the same, with the decrease in purchasing power, new vehicles are not considered to be economical option which makes used car a perfect choice for customers with limited budget.

Supply Gut Leads to Higher Prices of Used Cars: Due to the moratorium period provided by the Government of Thailand during the pandemic, banks cannot repossess car from loan defaulters. This has led to a supply disruption in the used car market. Also, since rental companies are facing a downward trend, they are unwilling to sell their cars at a lower price. The combined effect of both has led to an increased price of used car which may hamper the sales in the future.

Impact on Used Car Sales due to Covid-19: The demand for used cars decreased during the corona virus pandemic. This was due to low supply and also due to closure of OEM dealerships and Local Tents during lockdown. This was further fuelled by decrease in purchasing power which led to postponing of new and used car purchases. Also, Thailand has recently recovered from a political and economical instability which has led to a decline in supply. Apart from sales issues, used car companies experienced cash flow difficulties due to the fact that most of the banks were not repossessing cars. The demand for used cars in the country remained low at the starting of 2020, however there was increase in demand in the second half of the year post ease in confinement. The manufacturers are expected to shift focus towards digital medium in order to drive sales and increase customer footfall.
