Vehicle retail sales rise by 14.48% (YoY) in Aug 2021

According to the data released by the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA), vehicle retail sales went up by 14.48% in August 2021, compared to the same month last year.

Until last year, demand was a challenge, but now, supply is becoming a bigger problem due to the shortage of semiconductors. It is said that for the first time, customers may not get lucrative schemes this festive season.

FADA expects to see a demand-supply mismatch in the PV segment and low demand for 2-wheelers.
