Thailand’s Auto Finance Market is in the maturity stage, driven by road infrastructure development, economic growth in the country, and a dramatic increase in trading partners and export earnings. Major entities in the market are Banks and Captives that are 90-100 years old offering variety of financing services.

  • Thailand’s market uses the traditional way of banking including manpower and face-to-face transactions instead of online processes.
  • Nowadays, many non-banks have jumped into the Auto-finance business and they are doing it in a simpler way than banks.
  • The automotive industry in Thailand is the largest in Southeast Asia and the 10th largest in the world.

Growth in Online Retail and Liberal Trade Arrangements: There will be a rise in demand for commercial vehicles due to ongoing government investment, expansion in online retail, and logistics. The car manufacturers of the country plan to increase demand by releasing new models (including both the internal combustion engine and electric vehicles). With this, the greater trade openings under the current ASEAN Free Trade Area agreement would permit Thailand to export more automobiles to the rest of the region.

Used car financing more accessible and inexpensive: Thailand’s government announced subsidies for electric vehicles is anticipated to increase the country’s demand and sales for vehicles. Due to various financing companies’ policies that make used car financing more accessible and inexpensive, used car financing may experience an increase in the segmentation of the type of vehicle funded in the upcoming years. In addition to this, to enhance the volume of new car loans, Thailand’s leading banks also have the chance to strategically work with the original equipment manufacturer.

Shift from ICE to EV and Rapid Digitalization: Due to the increased energy efficiency, affordability, and environmental friendliness of electric vehicles, the market has experienced a transition away from internal combustion engines. As a result, EVs are now preferred over ICE vehicles in Thailand. To enhance the consumer experience, auto financing organizations are leaning more and more toward advanced technical developments. Online automobile sales have developed into a “one-stop-shop” service that gives customers direction and customization. In order to enhance and automate the delivery and use of financial services, such as payment gateways and trading platforms, new technology-based firms are joining the Thai car finance sector.
