The fastest growing unit in this segment is H-100, which closed at 3,439 units for 2017 from 2,280 units last year. H-100 registered an enormous growth of 51%.
Sales and Economic Outlook
he Philippine economy is expected to continue its impressive growth for 2018. This is anchored on sound macroeconomic fundamentals and the current administration’s “Build, Build, Build” program, which is expected to pump prime the economy. With the passing of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) into law, pressure for further price increase, particularly in the automotive sector, is likely inevitable. Nevertheless, the automotive sector remains optimistic that the additional disposable household income of taxpayers resulting from TRAIN and the technology-driven value proposition of car players would likely to sustain high demand for automotive vehicles. HARI hopes to leverage on this sustained high consumer confidence as it welcomes moves ahead in 2018.
