1 Industry Refer to important disclosures at the end of this report Page 1 DBS Group Research. Equity 22 ruary 216 China Auto Sector Analyst: Rachel MIU uary PV sales boosted by strong demand for SUVs Vehicle purchase tax cut continues to boost PV sales SUV demand remains robust; domestic brands top the sales list BUY automotive parts companies: Minth (425 HK) and Nexteer (1316 HK); selective on automakers: GAC (2238 HK) Great Wall Motor (2333 HK), SAIC-GM-Wuling (under SAIC 614 CH) and Guangzhou Automobile (2238 HK). In the past three years ( ), SUV sales have grown a rapid 4-5 per year. The strong demand has resulted in many automakers launching new SUV models at a faster pace to ride on the market uptrend. As such, market competition is also rising. The SUV segment s share of the total PV market has further increased to 35, up from 29 in 215. uary automotive market stays firm. Total vehicle sales grew by 7.8 to approximately 2.5m units last month. The passenger vehicle (PV) market posted 9.4 expansion while the commercial (CV) market fell 3.4 y-o-y. The strong PV sales were largely attributable to the vehicle purchase tax cut, which has benefited the unit sales of domestic brands. The Chinese New Year effect also had some impact on the PV volume growth. The Chinese auto brand volume sales increased by 16.6 and accounted for 45.5 of the total PV market, a 3ppts improvement from 15. Since the implementation of the stimulus policy to boost car demand, the domestic brand market share has been rising. Demand for SUVs is still growing strongly. The key PV volume drivers are SUVs (+61 y-o-y) and MPVs (+15.9 y-o-y). The top three SUV models are dominated by the Chinese brands CV market outlook is weak. Sales of commercial trucks continued to be affected by the weak economy. Sales of CVs fell by 3.4 y-o-y last month. We expect the CV market to remain weak for the rest of the year. BUY automotive parts companies; selective on automakers. Automotive parts manufacturers Minth (425 HK; TP HK$15.8) and Nexteer (1316 HK; TP HK9.6) are our top picks because these players have a more diversified market base, hence lowering their earnings risk profile. For automakers, Guangzhou Auto (TP HK$7.5) domestic brand Trumpchi is moving up the ranking in SUV sales as the company widens the range of product offerings. Besides, the company s Japanese JVs continued to post encouraging sales last month, with Guangqi Honda and GAC Toyota recording volume growth of 25 and 36 respectively. ed- JS / sa- CW
