Consumer Automotive Financial Services in South Africa investigates the market for automotive financial services linked to sales of new and used passenger cars and LCVs to individual buyers in South Africa. In addition to analysing the market for finance and leasing services, the study also covers motor insurance, road assistance, extended warranties, creditor insurance, GAP insurance, prepaid service contracts, minor damage insurance and tyre insurance.
Using survey results for average take-up rates for finance and leasing propositions at the point of sale, data for the size and growth of the automotive finance and leasing market for consumers in South Africa is provided in terms of gross advances and assets leased for 2013 to 2017 with splits between finance for new and used vehicles and between finance organised through dealerships at the point of sale and directly with banks or other lending institutions.
Moreover, also by means of data for average take-up rates, the markets for motor insurance, road assistance, extended warranties, creditor insurance, GAP insurance, prepaid service contracts, minor damage insurance and tyre insurance 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 around ZAR 17 billion 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.
