The New Passenger Vehicle Registrations Market in the United Kingdom is currently gripped in a maelstrom of Political, Economic, Social, Legislative, and Environmental issues.

Since 2016, the issue of Brexit has dominated the UK political agenda, and as a consequence of the UK government's inability to implement a clear strategy for the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union, the country is showing increasing signs of economic weakness and potential recession, with productivity falling, external investment drying up, business and consumer confidence in decline, and the Pound - since the Brexit referendum - falling over 10% in value against the Euro.

Environmentally and socially the automotive industry is facing huge upheaval with the implementation of new legislation such as the Worldwide harmonised Light vehicle Testing Procedure (WLTP) in September 2018 and the impending Regulation (EC) 443/2009 - due to come into force in 2021 - which are aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the automobile through more accurate testing and tougher emissions constraints respectively.

The latter of these two legislative changes is set to send shockwaves through the entire automotive manufacturing industry in Europe and result in rapid and significant changes to the composition of manufacturers product portfolios as they attempt to reduce fleet emissions, in two years - by an amount they previously achieved in ten - or face punitive fines.

As a result of this disruption, the registration of new Passenger Vehicles in the United Kingdom has been in decline since 2016 and is calculated at 2,306,000 vehicles in 2018. With a best-case view on the economic development of the UK, this figure is forecast to continue contraction at a rate of -1.2% CAGR, resulting in 2,270,000 registrations in 2020. It is then anticipated the market will return to growth, as the UK shows signs of recovery from Brexit and manufacturers product portfolios are refreshed to comply with emissions legislation, growing slowly by 1.8% CAGR from 2020 to reach approximately 2,390,000 registrations by 2023.
