Consumer Automotive Financial Services in South Korea investigates the market for automotive financial services linked to sales of new and used passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (LCVs) to individual buyers in South Korea. In addition to analysing the market for finance and leasing services, the study also covers motor insurance, road assistance, creditor insurance, extended warranties and prepaid service contracts plus GAP insurance.
Using survey results for average take-up rates for finance and leasing at the point of sale, data for the size and growth of the automotive finance and leasing market for consumers in South Korea is provided in terms of gross advances and assets leased for 2013 to 2017 with splits between finance for new and used cars and between finance organised through dealerships at the point of sale and directly with banks or other lending institutions.
Moreover, also using average take-up rate data, the markets for creditor insurance, motor insurance, road assistance, extended warranties and prepaid service contracts are sized in terms of gross written premiums and other revenues sold through the automotive trade (i.e. via dealers and manufacturers) in 2017. These markets, estimated to be worth over KRW 1.7 trillion in total in 2017, are broken down between new and used vehicles, and between new contracts sold during 2017 and in-force business sold in previous years but still being renewed in 2017.
The report draws on a survey of 60 leading vehicle dealerships as well as an analysis of the approach to consumer automotive financial services of 25 vehicle manufacturer brands in South Korea. The PartnerBASE™ dataset that accompanies the report details the partnerships for consumer automotive financial services identified by Finaccord among both dealers and manufacturers; a market data annexe is also available in a convenient spreadsheet format so that there is no need to re-enter key data points from the report.
In addition to captive finance companies owned by manufacturer brands, organisations covered by the report include BNP Paribas Cardif, Dongbu Insurance, Hanwha General, Hyundai Marine & Fire, JB Woori Capital, KB Capital, Lotte Capital, Lotte Insurance, Samsung Card and Samsung Fire & Marine. Together, the report and database will provide you with the definitive guide to current and future opportunities in consumer automotive financial services in South Korea.
