The report includes an overview of the China's economy and a review and forecast of the country's heavy- and medium-duty truck and bus markets, as well as analysis of OEM market shares within China.
"Domestic factors as well as the European debt crisis continued to exert a negative influence on China's GDP," said Frank Maly, director of commercial vehicle transportation analysis & research at ACT. "China's real estate investment slowed, leading to a rapid decline in overall investment growth," he added.
Domestic sales of Chinese heavy-duty trucks continued downward in Q3. Bus market sales also took a turn for the worse after the bright 4.7% year-over-year sales recorded last quarter. China's GDP growth is expected to remain in the 8% to 9% range through 2017.
