China's automotive finance market is still in the early stage of development
due to consumer attitude, risk management and control, etc. While the
penetration of automotive finance has exceeded 80% in the United States, India
and Brazil, 60% in Japan and Western Europe, and 40% in Russia, it only achieved
15% in China in 2012, indicating huge growth potential.
As the core business of automotive finance, retail financing broke a balance of
RMB 300 billion in China in 2011, of which, RMB 136.7 billion (41%) was
attributable to commercial banks. Affected by the automobile purchase control
policy, the retail financing balance witnessed a growth slowdown in 2012, and
only increased by 13% year on year to about RMB 339 billion.
Besides the retail financing business, a mature automotive finance market shall
include wholesale financing, car rental and leasing, and used car financing
businesses. In 2012-2013, following the steps of Dongfeng Nissan and dealer
groups, automotive finance companies, such as Mercedes-Benz Financial Services,
Volkswagen Financial Services, Toyota Financial Services and BMW Financial
Services, also plan to develop China’s automotive rental and leasing market.
