Issues & Challenges in Singapore Auto Finance Industry: Ken Research

Key Findings

  • Increasing Number of Auto Finance service providers are focussing on improving their Value-Added Services and streamlining their business operations using Big Data, Data Analytics Tools, IoT, AI and others.
  • The rise in private car service financing is driving the Singapore automotive financing market. The objective of car service financing is to create a financing program that offers flexible leases, weekly rentals, and discounts to purchase new cars to potential drivers.

Improving Digital Infrastructure: Major Auto Finance Players of Singapore are increasingly focussing on improving IT and investing in technology in order to retain their customers in the highly competitive market of the country. Singapore’s Auto customers are already responding to the advent of big data, open data and digital technologies.  Banks in the country are seeing machine learning as the real fit when it comes to optimizing financing and loan processes, such as credit, risk management, and compliance reporting for a better infrastructure.

Emerging Green Car Loans: Singapore has put in a suite of measures to encourage drivers to switch to electric vehicles, which are more environmentally friendly, and is aiming to phase out all internal combustion engine vehicles by 2040. This means all vehicles should either be hybrid or run-on electricity in 20 years. Owing to the above reason, the country is expected to witness an increase in Green Car Loans in the future with several Auto Finance players introducing a portfolio of these.

Introduction of New Business Models:  Owing to its limited area, Singapore has strict car buying rules and regulations as Government is trying to curb the car population by driving prices upwards in the country. Owing to the above reason, new business models such as Shared Ownership and more may emerge in future in Singapore to increase Car Sales.
