Motorcycle sales in the Indonesian market began to rise in 2021. According to data from the Indonesian Motorcycle Industry Association (AISI), motorcycle sales in the domestic market rose by 38% with 5,057,516 units in 2021 compared to 2020, where sales were recorded at only 3,660,616 units. Then how big is the market share of AISI members such as Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, and TVS?
AISI Head of Commercial Division Sigit Kumala said the positive achievement of motorcycle sales in the country reflected the improvement in people’s purchasing power which had a positive impact on the domestic motorcycle market. Widespread vaccination coverage and controlled COVID-19 have encouraged confidence to move the economy.
“We hope that there will be no new wave of COVID-19 and the effects of this pandemic can be managed well by the stakeholders. Commodity prices will improve, there will be no natural disasters and farmers will get blessings from the harvest. This positive trend in the motorcycle industry will definitely have a positive impact.
rolling to its supporting industries, both upstream and downstream,” said Sigit in an official statement received by detikcom.
This positive growth further boosts the optimism of the two-wheeled automotive industry to spur performance in 2022. AISI targets the motorcycle market in 2022 to be better than last year’s 5.1 million to 5.4 million units.
Meanwhile, judging from the performance of association members throughout 2021, Honda recorded sales of 3,928,788 units, Yamaha 1,063,866 units, Kawasaki 43,540 units, Suzuki 18,380 units and TVS 2,942 units.
The stretch of the motorcycle industry during this pandemic was also driven by the increase in the achievement of motorcycle exports which also recorded positive growth. It was recorded that in 2021, Indonesian motorcycle manufacturers managed to export 803,931 units of motorcycles, an increase of 15% compared to last year’s export performance which recorded 700,392 units.
This high export growth is expected to continue in 2022. This year, AISI projects that shipments of Indonesian motorcycles to other countries will increase by 20%, or will be in the range of 970,000 units.
“Hopefully this positive achievement in supporting community mobility will continue this year. We want the industry’s contribution to encourage economic growth to be better in the future,” concluded Sigit.
