On quarterly basis, VISI predicts that the automotive sector will continue to increase by up to 48% in Q4/2021. Mostly, the increase will be triggered by the return-to-normal activities of the logistics and transportation sector in Indonesia. The recovering performance of the automotive supporting service sector will also contribute to the increase.



Based on data from the Association of Indonesian Automotive Industries (Gabungan Industri Kendaraan Bermotor Indonesia), automobile wholesales show fluctuating in 2021 every month, with peak sales occurred in March 2021 and September. The sales increase is in line with the implementation of 0% Sales Tax on Luxury Goods (0% PPnBM) for new cars in March 2021.
