Europe’s Supply Chain Recovery

Europe saw a sharp increase in new car registrations in December. The EU and Britain saw a 14.8% increase.

On the other hand, China saw an 8.4% drop in new car sales year over year. The US had a 5.4% increase compared to the same period.

So the question is, what's going on in Europe? Full-year data shows a 4.1% drop in registrations compared to 2021. The data suggests the supply issues caused less pressure as the year went on, allowing the market to meet more demand AND adjust prices to meet more customers' budgets.

While supply chain issues seem to be mending, the macroeconomic outlook in the region (IE Recession fears) could lead to weakening demand.
