32 Sales Volume One of the most important features of the passenger car segment is the low volumes, which prevent the manufacturers from reaching economies of scale. Domestic sales volumes are currently approximately 216,786 per annum, with total sales. The motorization index in 2011 for Pakistan was 12 cars per 1000 people, compared to the global average of 165.97. Industry stakeholders that we interviewed suggest that they would achieve economies of scale at 500,000 car/annum.

38 Market Structure The motorcycle segment in Pakistan has seen rapid change in recent years, the most important of which has been the increase in volume. From a volume of merely 63,000 in 1999-2000, production has grown to around 1.9 million units in 2017-18. The impact of this increase in volume has been to potentially allow the assemblers and suppliers in their vending chain to achieve economies of scale, and consequently high levels of localization and low price. These lower prices have in turn fueled demand further. Currently the market is characterized by a large number of assemblers competing on price, with low barriers to entry.

39 Cont. The motorcycle industry began with Honda’s assembly of motorcycles under the Atlas group in 1964. The industry was initially dominated with just three Japanese brands: Suzuki, Yamaha and Honda. Of these, Honda was the dominant player with approximately 70 per cent market share. In the late 1990s non-Japanese OEMs began to make forays into the market and by the early 2000s, several local companies had started local assembly.

40 Cont. The first sharp growth period started in 2002, driven by this increase in the number of players, a low exchange rate, and low duties and taxes. A defining feature of this growth was the introduction of the “Chinese bike” or “Honda clone”. The clone motorcycle, is a replica of the classic Honda CD-70, assembled out of local and Chinese parts, and available at about two-thirds of the price of the Honda original. Despite the financial crisis, which registers as a dip in the period 2007-09, the industry quickly picked up volumes as it entered the sharpest incline since its inception.

42 Large Number of Competitors The rapid increase testifies not just to the demand factors discussed earlier but also to low barriers to entry on the supply side.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
