More Organized Players Plan Foray into the Philippines Used Cars Market as the segment shows Resilience to the Economic Crisis during Covid-19 due to a Pandemic incited surge in Demand: Ken Research

GURUGRAM, India, Dec. 1, 2021 --

  • The Used Cars Market in Philippines has been gaining traction since several years, however, the growth has accelerated especially over the last decade as several organized players have entered the segment.
  • The increasing digital space encapsulating the used cars segment has provided a boost to the industry in terms of more visibility and even credibility of the buyers and sellers. The growth of E-Commerce is expected to further augment the used car sales.
  • The used cars market is primarily skewed towards the Metro Manila region. Since, it is the most developed region in the Philippines, the frequency of an individual upgrading his/her car is higher. Thus, leading to a greater availability of pre-owned cars in the region.

Increasing Used Car Sales due to Covid-19: The pandemic made owning a car an inevitable aspect of an individual's life as travelling via public transport can be hazardous during the times when strict social distancing protocols must be followed. People who preferred public transport during the pre-Covid times are now the potential customers of the used cars market. Since, the pandemic does not seem to completely subside anytime soon, the demand for used cars will keep increasing until majority of the potential customers, who initially travelled via public transport, own a car. Since most of these people could not afford a car in the first place, they would prefer the most optimal solution available, that is, purchasing a pre-owned car.

Expansion of OEM Dealers: The pandemic showed that while the new cars market is becoming vulnerable, the pre-owned cars market is becoming more resilient. In order to take advantage of the growing used cars space in Philippines, some of the popular OEM brands are expanding their presence in the pre-owned certified cars segment.

Rising popularity of Online platforms: The online space in the used cars market has been gaining traction over time on account of increasing internet penetration and Covid-19 protocols that forced several dealers to introduce the concept of virtual showrooms to promote minimum contact and social distancing between buyers and sellers. Increased usage of Facebook and other social networking sites too will contribute to the increased role of online platforms in promoting the used cars industry.

Increased focus on value-added services: Since the number of organized players in the used cars segment is gradually increasing, more dealers have shifted their focus on providing value-added services to survive the increasing competition. While it is quite common for the DDSAs (Direct Dealership Sales Agents) to provide such services, several multi-brand dealers too have started providing additional services such as extended warranty, insurance, after sales services, etc., to become a 'one-stop' destination for used car buyers.

Unorganised Segment's Share to Decline: Small independent dealers with fewer inventories along with individual sellers constitute the unorganized sector. Unorganized segment contributes to majority of the market share in the used cars space basis the number of small dealers spread across the country. However, the share of unorganized dealers is expected to decline in the future as more and more organized players enter the market. Moreover, buying used cars from organized players has an added advantage of the value-added services which are not provided by the unorganized players.

Analysts at Ken Research in their latest publication "Philippines Used Car Market Outlook To 2025 (Second Edition): The Pandemic Incited Increased Demand for Used Cars coupled with Increased Internet Penetration provides for Resilience in the Used Cars Market during the Economic Crisis" observed that Philippines is in a growth phase in the used car market in South East Asia and is gradually recovering from the economic crisis after the pandemic. The increasing credit appetite of banks fueled by competition from foreign financing companies is giving a boost to this industry. Going forward, the industry is expected to demonstrate a moderated growth in the short-medium term fueled by growth of online used car platforms that provide convenience to both buyers and sellers.
