Sales of New Cars In Bangladesh – Data, Trends, Charts & Analysis

Bangladesh is the world’s 8th-most populous country with nearly 163 million people.

Insufficient power supply is a significant obstacle to Bangladesh’s economic development.

Bangladesh Automotive Sales Data & Recent Highlights

As you can see, the Bangladesh car sales market has been declining since 2014. The decline was most pronounced in 2016, when sales fell by 45.96%. However, the market has started to recover in recent years, with sales increasing by 6.67% in 2021.

There are a number of factors that have contributed to the decline in Bangladesh car sales in recent years. These include the economic slowdown, the rise of public transportation, and the high cost of car ownership. However, the market is expected to recover in the coming years. The government of Bangladesh is investing in infrastructure projects, which is expected to boost economic growth and create jobs. This, in turn, is expected to lead to an increase in demand for cars.

In addition, the government is also introducing a number of incentives to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles. This is expected to further boost the car sales market in Bangladesh in the coming years.
