Growth of Online Platforms: The last decade has witnessed the entry of various online auto classified platforms in the country such as Motory, Abi Sayara, Syarah, and more. The internet penetration in the Kingdom stood at ~93% in January 2020, highlighting the growing presence of consumers online. The majority of the leads for offline dealerships were also observed to be generated online. The traction towards online platforms has led to brands & local dealerships partnering with these platforms to list their used car inventory online.
Central & Western Region Dominating Sales: The central & western regions, particularly the cities of Riyadh & Jeddah were observed to account for the majority of the used car sales in the country. These regions also account for a large proportion of the working and ex-pat population in the country and act as a business hub. Most large brand-authorized dealers have multiple showrooms in these regions.
Challenges in Used Car Industry: The consistently increasing fuel prices in the country as well as high vehicle insurance rates have negatively impacted the used car sales over the review period. The departure of ex-pats from the Kingdom in 2016-2017 also led to a decline in sales as ex-pats constitute one of the major used car buyers in the country. The tripling of VAT from 5% to 15% from July 2020 is further expected to adversely affect sales from dealerships in the future.
Impact of COVID-19 on Used Car Sales Market: COVID-19 has severely impacted the automotive industry in Saudi Arabia, including the used car sales market. During the months from April-June, the footfall in showrooms declined by ~80%. Job losses among ex-pats and restricted international travel led to a surge in the supply of used cars from rental companies. Prior to the tripling of VAT from July 2020, the new, as well as used car sales, momentarily picked up. The demand for used cars is expected to remain low throughout the second half of 2020; slow recovery is expected to start from mid-2021. Companies are expected to increase their presence online to boost their pre-owned car sales.
