What to Expect in Future

There has been a 36% price increase in automobiles and therefore it is expected that their sales would go down in the next fiscal year. What’s more, another price hike is expected. However, some analysists are of the view that prices have gone up in the past as well, not affecting car sales numbers and that the same will happen at least during the current fiscal year. They have based their opinion on current booking numbers.

What do you make of the future of automobile industry in Pakistan?
