FADA gathered sales data from 1,355 out of 1,442 regional transport offices across the country. It forecasts growth in each sector for the upcoming year, anticipating product launches, stable market sentiments, and enhanced economic conditions to drive demand. Additionally, factors like lower fuel prices, agricultural payments, and an uptick in EV participation are expected to further fuel customer sentiment and demand. The commercial vehicle segment is poised for growth, buoyed by increased government spending, infrastructural projects, and the replacement of older vehicles.
