Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is a political and economic union of Arab states bordering the Gulf. It was established in 1981 and its six members are the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain. Almost every economy in GCC is majorly dependent on oil & petroleum product trades, but this trend has been rapidly changing as the government is taking initiatives to help non-oil sectors like services, construction, tourism and others grow, this changing landscape is predicted to positively influence the passenger car market of the country. GCC passenger car market can be segmented based on vehicle type, fuel type, transmission type, end user and country. In terms of vehicle type, the sedan car segment accounts for the largest share but due to an increase in the service sector, demand for personal transportation is increasing and hence giving rise to the hatchback car segment. Off-roading events are getting popularity among people and hence the demand for vehicles with higher engine capacity is growing in the gulf countries, which is expected to drive the sports utility segment at an impressive rate in the forecast period. Based on fuel type the market is segmented across petrol, diesel and other alternative fuels or electrically powered vehicles. The prices of gasoline or petrol are very low as compared to other fuels and therefore ownership and running costs of petrol driven vehicles are comparatively less. Hence, among these, petrol or gasoline powered vehicles are more popular among people belonging to GCC and this trend is susceptible to endure in the forecast period. On the basis of passenger car sales by end user, individual owners are much more contributing as compared to fleet owners currently. However, the past few years have witnessed a substantial increase in the usage of taxi services like Uber and Careem, moreover police & government are also increasing their workforce and hence contributing to region’s passenger car sales. Therefore, the trend of passenger car sales by end user is witnessed to be increasing in case of contribution by fleet owners, which is susceptible to be observed in the upcoming years as well. Companies across the region are also introducing safer, technologically advanced, and fuel-efficient passenger cars. Cars with automatic transmission account for the majority of share in the GCC passenger car market on account of ease of driving with stringent traffic rules across the region.

Toyota Motor Corporation, Nissan Motor Company, Ltd., Hyundai Motor Company, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, Kia Corporation, etc., are among some of the leading players operating in the GCC passenger car market.
