Qatar Auto Finance Market Overview and Size:

The Vehicle Finance Market in Qatar witnessed a slight decline during the period 2014-2018, owing to decreasing new vehicle sales over the same period. The market is in growth stage with vehicle sales beginning to follow a normal growth trend after continued exponential growth till 2014, followed by a rapid decline after that. Trends in the market were largely stimulated by decline in oil prices after 2014 and blockade led by Saudi & a few other neighboring gulf countries against Qatar. These trends led to decline of new vehicle sales in Qatar but spurred the growth of used vehicles, especially in passenger cars segment in the country.

Qatar Vehicle Finance Market Segmentation:

By New and Used Vehicles: The Vehicle Finance Market in Qatar is segmented into New and Used Vehicle finance with New Vehicle finance holding a major share of the total credit disbursed in 2018.

Captives and NBFCs are struggled in gaining traction.

By Type of Vehicle (Bikes, Cars and Light Commercial Vehicles): Cars accounted for a major share in the number of vehicles financed in the market owing to high volume of SUVs on Qatar roads , while the share of Light Commercial is lower than Cars and higher than bikes. This was due to low preference of bikes by population in Qatar due to sandy and hot terrain.

The overall trend in the market is the lengthening of loan terms with car buyers preferring to make payments over a longer period of time to distribute their financial burden evenly over a longer period.
