Car usage in Qatar growing at the fastest pace in the Gulf

A new report is predicting that an estimated 912,000 cars are set to be cruising down the country's roads within the next three years.That's more than 200,000 extra cars on the road than there are currently.And it translates into the highest percentage growth in passenger car use – 5.4 percent – of all GCC countries over the next five years.This forecast from Alpen Capital's latest GCC Automobile Industry Report comes despite recent mass layoffs, and concerns from Qatar's car industry about a resulting slowdown in the market.It also comes despite Qatar's significant investment in public transport.This is because the first stage of the country's Metro system is not due to open until late 2019 or early 2020 - towards to the end of the period the report covers.


New car sales slowing

According to Alpen, Qatar registered over 86,000 new vehicles last year, a 9.3 percent increase on sales from 2010.

The report attributed this growth to "domestic opulence" and the country's population, which has continued to climb despite falling oil prices.

With these points in mind, Alpen's report stated that demand for new cars in Qatar will decline in 2016 and remain under pressure in 2017.However, the market will grow in later years due to the expected increase in population and tourist arrivals ahead of the 2022 World Cup.


Most popular brands

The report also analyzed trends in the country's car market, confirming that the majority of residents favor Toyota.

Photo for illustrative purposes only.Thirty-seven percent of all new passenger car purchases in Qatar during the first four months of this year were from Toyota.That's an increase of 2.8 percentage points from the same period in 2015, the report said.Second was Nissan, with 15 percent of new car sales, and Mitsubishi came in third with a 9 percent share of the market.
