CAMPI members release sales figures for month of July

Report collective growth of 7%
Aug 14, 2012

The Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines (CAMPI)--together with the Truck Manufacturers Association--has released the official sales figures of its members for July 2012. According to CAMPI, its members moved a total of 14,503 units last month (including industrial trucks and buses, which we're no longer including in the table below. This brings CAMPI members' year-to-date total sales to 87,377 units, a modest growth of seven percent compared to the same period (January to July) last year.

In terms of year-to-date figures, Toyota continues to lead the industry with a 40.8-percent market share, followed by Mitsubishi with 23.2 percent and Honda with 8.2 percent. Do note that when we say "market share," the market size excludes non-CAMPI members like Hyundai, Chevrolet and Subaru, among others.

"During the first semester of the year, CAMPI's performance significantly improved," said CAMPI president Atty. Rommel Gutierrez. "During this time, manufacturers showed signs of recovery from the limitations of supply brought about by last year's floods in Thailand. This July, the local automotive industry proved that it has fully recovered and will be able to cater to the growing demand for vehicles this year. July has always been a seasonally high month in terms of sales for the automotive industry, and this was reflected by last month's figures once again."

CAMPI, which is holding its 4th Philippine International Motor Show this week at the World Trade Center, is revising its total industry sales forecast for the year to 185,000 units.

Below is the individual breakdown of CAMPI and TMA members' sales performance.
