Increasing Used Car Sales due to Covid-19: With the advent of Covid-19, consumers were witnessed to be more concerned on maintaining personal health and hygiene. Therefore, they are preferring the option of private transportation rather than availing public transport system. The change in consumer’s behavior and preference is expected to act as an opportunity for the used car market in Philippines. Since, the pandemic does not seem to completely subside anytime soon, the demand for used cars will keep increasing until the entirety of the potential customers, who initially travelled via public transport, own a car. Brands such as Honda are now planning to establish their own pre-owned certified cars segment. The pandemic showed that while the new cars market is becoming vulnerable, the pre-owned cars market is becoming more resilient.

Strategic Partnerships between Dealers and Banks: The multi-brand dealers and banks are strategically partnering with online classified pages and online auto portals to make the process accessible and transparent for the buyers. Also, the banks have collaborated with websites such as AutoDeal and online auction platforms such as Automart for pre-owned cars. Since the vehicle buyers are looking out for used and new vehicles online, the banks strategically cross sell their loan products for both new and used units.

Emergence of Online B2C & C2B Players: In Philippines there are many classified portals facilitating the sale of used cars, however, there are no pure play companies offering B2C & C2C used car sales currently. But digitalization is changing the way the industry does business, with more and more sales taking place online. And with the onset of pandemic, the long-term outlook for online used car sales is quite encouraging. Players such as Carsome are planning to enter the market in near future and offer an online platform for used car sales in Philippines. Advanced technologies including artificial intelligence and machine learning would play an important role in improving revenues and reducing costs.
