Let’s see the tractors’ sales for July-2023.


Tractor sales improved by 19% compared to the previous year. While Fiat’s month-on-month tractor sales have improved by 20%, Massey Ferguson saw a 64% increase in year-on-year sales. 


Overall, it appears the auto industry is showing signs of picking up every month. We’ve witnessed a significant boost in sales for certain cars, bikes, and tractors. Still, when we look at the bigger picture, the numbers are mostly in the red—both when comparing month-to-month and year-to-year.

However, we must keep in mind that even positive numbers might not paint the complete picture. Around this time last year, sales were starting to dip. So, the rise in sales could be a signal that things are gradually improving, but the improvement might not be as strong when we look back two years.

Data was taken from Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (PAMA). Percentages are rounded off so the actual may slightly vary.
