0


Increasing Internet Penetration: There were 29 million internet users in Malaysia in January 2020.  Internet penetration in Malaysia was ~85% during the same period. As the smartphone and internet penetration in Malaysia is increasing, the used car dealers have been able to increase their footfall. The digital platform provides online services such as photos and videos and instant finance, other value-added services such as warranty extension, insurance, etc which are drawing more customers into buying used cars.

The Concerns about Health from Using Public Transportation:  Due to the onset of coronavirus, public transport and ride sharing are no longer considered to be a safe option. Nowadays, more people are concerned about health and risk for severe illness from the virus, and as a result, used car is an alternative for prevent getting and spreading COVID-19 to keep social distance. In addition to the same, with the decrease in purchasing power, new vehicles are not considered to be economical option which makes used car a perfect choice for customers with limited budget.

Evolution of complete transaction Marketplaces: Transactional marketplaces provide consumers a completely digital experience and enable them to book test drive & buy used cars online. These platforms also provide ancillary services such as insurance, warranty, financing options & documentation support.

Impact on Used Car Sales due to Covid-19: The demand for used cars decreased during the peak of Covid pandemic on account of Movement Control Order restrictions. This was due to low supply and closure of OEM dealerships and Local Tents during lockdown which was further fueled by decrease in purchasing power which led to postponing of new and used car purchases.  However as the country witnessed easing of lockdown restrictions, there was a significant traction in used car sales. This was on account of preference of personal vehicles over shared transport, favourable tax policies, and sale of vehicles by people with multiple car ownership. The demand for used cars in the country remained low at the starting of 2020, however there was increase in demand in the second half of the year post ease in confinement. The manufacturers are expected to shift focus towards digital medium in order to drive sales and increase customer footfall.
