Benin Automotive Sales Data & Recent Highlights

As you can see, the Benin car sales market has been declining since 2017. The decline was most pronounced in 2018, when sales fell by 23.7%. However, the market has started to recover in recent years, with sales increasing by 36.5% in 2021. There are a number of factors that have contributed to the decline in Benin car sales in recent years. These include the economic slowdown, the high cost of car ownership, and the lack of infrastructure.

The economic slowdown has led to a decrease in disposable income, which has made it difficult for people to afford cars. The high cost of car ownership is also a major barrier to entry. The average car price in Benin is about $15,000, which is significantly higher than the average income. And the lack of infrastructure, such as good roads and reliable public transportation, makes it difficult to get around without a car.

Despite these challenges, the Benin car sales market is expected to grow in the coming years. The economy is expected to recover, and the government is investing in infrastructure projects, which will make it easier to get around without a car. 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 Benin in the coming years.
