China's Auto Sales Growth in 2022

Automobile’s sales in China saw a growth for the first time in 2021 since 2017, partly due to a rise in new energy vehicles (NEVs), specified industry data on January 12, 2022.

After once-a-month sales of 2.79 million vehicles last month, which set 2021’s overall sales at 26.28 million, total auto sales in the world’s largest car industry grew 3.8% year by year.

China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, CAAM, declared in its recent statement that 2022 is estimated to be a better year regarding auto production and sales. Potentially, this year obstacles including chip undersupply as well as expensive raw materials will be less severe, the statement added. The country’s auto business started shrinking in 2018 on account of a business conflict between the U.S. and China. 

China car industry tried to rebound by mid-2020; however, it was brought down due to semiconductors insufficiency across the world, leading to a global halt in production.

In the meantime, NEVs sales gained a momentum, a rise of 157.5% last year.

Last December saw a growth in NEVs sales, 114% year-on-year. CAAM’s expectation of a jump of 5.4% in auto sales and 47% rise in NEV sales reveals the country’s attempt to promote the car market and cut back air pollution. China will also bring down subsidies on NEVs by 30% this year, in this regard.

China's Consumer Spending Targeting to Double by 2030

Chinese consumers spent a huge amount in years, basically more on services than goods, according to Morgan Stanley’s analysis. Private consumption in China is on track to get $12.7 trillion, which is nearly as much money as American consumers spend presently. Morgan Stanley’s prediction proved to be wrong as it had forecasted the number to be $9.7 trillion 3 years ago. As stated by the analytical report, the boost has happened as a result of supporting domestic economy by the Chinese government, growth in household earnings, working on developing urban places, and growth in technology. However, there’s still uncertainty in the wake of the pandemic. The country’s economy has totally rebounded from the pandemic attack but personal spending is not overall recovered yet. Last year, China saw a contraction in its retail sales while the national GDP grew. The investment banking company also predicted in its report Chinese people may want to save up if developments in automation facilities and technological applications lead to a huge job loss rate.

India, too, is the second biggest importer of coal in the world. The new company will exclusively mine premium quality coking (metallurgical) coal. This year, it intends to mine 15 million tons of the product (with an estimation of 18 million tons next year).
