5th January 2018 – Don’t Panic UK Car Manufacturing Is Not Suffering
The UK has suffered a 5.6% fall in new car registrations in 2017, but 2017 still posted the 3rd highest new car registrations in the last decade.
If your industry posts record high new car registrations (ever ever!) in 2016 it is likely that an increase in road tax and an increase in interest rates it is going to stop the run of record new car sales in the UK, as happened in 2017. 2018 may moderate further but is more likely to stay at around 2017 car output levels.
Many financial experts, in the early part of 2017 were warning about a growing “new car lending financial bubble” that was about to burst unless the Bank of England did something about lending to buy new cars and this could cause, it was argued, another financial crisis like 2008.
If you increase interest rates to curb inflation and spending then it shouldn’t come as a massive surprise that new car sales fall from the record high’s of 2016. If this also means a financial crisis has been averted then that could be a good thing for the long-term sustainability of the car industry and the UK economy.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders SMMT are promoting their industry, but they are not blessed with holistic economic glasses when looking to their future! They should be careful about “crying wolf”, as when help is really needed it might not come.
Given that Forbes Magazine ranked the UK as the best country in the world to do business in 2018 despite Brexit, interest rates are still comparatively low and unemployment is at levels not seen since mid 1970’s, now is not the time to shout for help from the government.
Bigger risks to jump up and down about in UK manufacturing:
- Cyber Risks and driverless technology
- Growing Skills Gap and improving apprenticeships and training
- Exporting more overseas to take advantage of low value of pound
The lack of sales in the UK domestic new car sales market is not the biggest threat to car manufacturing.
