Compared with other markets, automobile financing in China is developing relatively slowly. Despite this, the country possesses several characteristics that set it apart from the rest of the world. In the following article, translated by Gasgoo.com , Li Jun, a taxation and commercial consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers China, shared his perspectives on the state of automobile financing in China today.
In 2012, less than 20 percent of vehicle purchases in the country were made using automobile financing. This is partially due to traditional Chinese views regarding debit and credit. As these views begin to change, the demand for automobile financing will continue to grow.
The lack of specialized companies and predominance of banks in the Chinese automobile finance sector
Automobile finance companies are the main outlets that provide financing services overseas. Financing services offered by banks in these markets are generally decreasing.
In China, the development of automobile finance companies has been relatively slow. As such, commercial banks remain the major provider of financing services. Banks possess significant advantages in capital and customer resources. However, banks may still lack a through understanding of the automobile market. Therefore, when conducting risk management, especially when assessing an individual's credit risk, they may have to invest more resources than a company specifically dealing in financing would have to. Furthermore, since banks do not have a clear relationship with automobile manufacturers and are primarily concerned with maintaining a favorable interest margin, they may not act in accordance with market trends. Relatively complex application processes associated with obtaining automobile financing from banks are another issue of concern.
