Key Market Trends

Passenger Vehicle Sales Driving Growth 

Despite of a decline in demand for a couple of years in the region, owing to the factors such as the socio-political situation in the country, the Brexit deal and uncertainty over future environmental regulation, the United Kingdom passenger vehicle market still remains second largest market in the European Union, standing behind Germany.

The area of the zone will be expanded in October 2021. these initiatives are forcing the OEMs to opt for lightweight materials for the vehicle which can reduce the emission of harmful gases.

While the conventional fuel segment for passenger cars is hovering around uncertainty the hybrid and electric vehicle market is booming with a high growth rate. Demand for the latest battery electric cars more than tripled to 4,652 in November, up from 1,415 a year ago.
