Used car market sales

There had been remarkable growth in the demand for used car in China. In 2019, the overall used car sales revenue amounted to approximately 953.7 billion yuan, which has been growing for the last ten years from 148.8 billion yuan. This six-fold increase displays the remarkable growth in demand for used vehicles in China. Over 59 percent of used vehicles traded had been passenger cars. Despite its steady growth, the second-hand car market in China accounts for only a proportion of the whole vehicle market. In 2020, around 14 million sold used cars stood against 22 million registered new cars in China.
