The UK car sales market 2014 reports that the figures have risen substantially, breaking the greatest record that dates back to the 80′s. Official updates were released last month, May, which is the 27th month in a row to have projected high automotive market sales. Factors involving to such would be the raised level of confidence, as well as a solid economic growth. Both these have swelled great demand for a list of new cars within the UK, where sales continue to outpace the pre-recession levels.

British automotive buyers have always been the car industry darling of the European region, and this has been so for the past two years while the remainders of the continent were stifling with dwindling sales. In the UK, new car sales in May rose 7.7 percent to 194,032 vehicles. The sales have been up by far to an 11 percent mark compared that of the collective sales of 2013. Nevertheless, that does not deny the inquisitiveness of market watchers and expert analysts, particularly on the topics of economic foundations and sustainability of the massive boom.

Recent studies suggests that in every ten new cars, at least eight are bought through credit in the UK. Since March of 2012, the new car market has grown on a monthly basis, and among the biggest contributors to this trend, as research would tell, are the use of credit lines. But according to Mike Hawes, one of Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ chief executives, the rise is simply a reflection of the ever-improving economic statuses of the UK, and that is what collates the most recent data.

Through SMMT’s forecasting about the overall rise that goes about 6 percent across the year, it has been predetermined that there should be some extent of leveling in the growth rates as a result of imminent stabilisation of the underlying demand. Mike Hawes also mentioned that the increase of sales by 2014 go beyond the 2.4-million car mark from the 2.3-million of 2013. The executives, however, have been very keen in stressing how the market will start to flat out the soonest it approaches an annual demand of a steady level.

Richard Lowes, Retail & Wholesale head at Barclays, has attributed the steadfast growth to have improved consumer confidence. He also said that if everything runs smoothly or even better over the summer, then we are all to expect that the market sales will hold firmly to its continuously growing state and that the scenario will be focused on the manufacturers in the event of the drop-down of the gears. There is always a common denominator to blame and it so happens to be the source of the running machines.

Back in May, the biggest gainer who has garnered a 65 percent rise in market sales is none other than Renault, who was stimulated by the 92 percent budget increase of the Dacia brand. Volkswagen and Toyota have also expanded their sales by 15 percent and 21 percent respectively. On the other hand, Ford has witnessed its sales to have fallen down 9 percent within the month. Then again, there’s until summer to see how sales are really plotted to move forward.
