Automotive industry in Poland - Statistics & Facts

Poland’s motor vehicle, trailer, and semi-trailer manufacturing industry was worth 38.6 billion euros in 2018. The industry’s growth has been relatively smooth in recent years, following an initial decline noted in 2012 and was home to some 1,717 enterprises.
Retail and wholesale trade of all goods, including the motor vehicle service industry, generated approximately 419.8 billion euros in turnover in 2018, making it the most profitable year in the reporting period. Furthermore, looking at the maintenance and repair of motor vehicles, this sector was forecast to increase revenues in the coming years, reaching nearly six billion U.S. dollars by 2025.

Most popular passenger cars

As of 2020, Toyota was the country’s most popular car brand. The Japanese automobile manufacturer sold over 61 thousand units to the Polish market that year, almost five thousand more than Škoda, which came in second. Two of the ten leading models were produced by Škoda, with the Octavia placing first, at 18,668 vehicles sold. It was the only car model for which sales figures exceeded 18,000 units.

Car sales

In terms of car sales to Poland, 2018 was the most profitable year yet for Škoda. New registrations more than doubled between 2011 and 2019. However, the Czech company was not the only Eastern European-based producer noting such prominent growth rates. Romanian brand Dacia sold more than four times as many cars to Poland in 2020 than nine years prior.

Due to the situation caused by the global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), car dealers recorded large drops in the number of vehicle registrations in Poland in March 2020. The most significant declines were noted in the sales of Volkswagen and Dacia cars. However, for the full year 2020, almost all car brands saw substantial sales declines, except for Audi, the only brand to see a 13 percent increase in its car sales compared to 2019.
