Automotive Finance and Leasing for Consumers in Europe delivers comprehensive and in-depth research covering the EUR 299.8 billion market for private car finance in 20 countries in Europe, namely: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK.
Based on a survey of 1,230 dealers in these countries and an investigation typically covering between 30 and 50 automotive brands in each territory, the study delivers unique insights into the market for finance and leasing for new and used cars bought by consumers, with fully comparable and standardised data describing market values and volumes from 2014 to 2018. Moreover, data is split for each country between point-of-sale finance through dealers and finance provided directly to consumers by lenders and leasing firms.
In addition to this comprehensive market data, the survey results are also used to measure the propensity of dealers to work with non-tied finance and leasing partners as well as tied entities, to identify the leading non-tied providers at the point of sale, to understand relationships between manufacturers or importers and external finance and leasing companies for branded or endorsed consumer finance propositions, and to measure both the proportion of applicants for point-of-sale finance who are classified as subprime and the speed with which applications are processed.
This report plus the PartnerBASE™ dataset and market data file that accompany it can be used in the following ways:
to understand the current size and future potential of the market for automotive finance and leasing for consumers on a Europe-wide basis and how this differs by country;
to appreciate how this opportunity breaks down between finance for new and used cars and between finance provided through dealerships and credit offered directly to consumers;
to identify the foremost competitors in each country: how strong are internationally-diversified, non-captive providers such as BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole, Santander and Société Générale in comparison to leading captive finance competitors, the largest of which is Volkswagen Financial Services?
to evaluate the potential for establishing partnerships with manufacturers or importers for branded or endorsed consumer finance and leasing propositions across 20 countries in Europe;
to appreciate how the average processing speeds of applications for point-of-sale finance vary enormously across each of the same countries.
Indeed, for important automotive groups, such as BMW, Daimler, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, PSA, Renault Nissan, Toyota, Volvo (Geely) and VW, the study delivers comprehensive information concerning their current programs and partners for consumer finance and leasing in each of the 20 countries covered.
