Volkswagen on Friday forecast that its sales may slow down through 2024, this new assessment follows other car makers in the industry due to rising competition and slowing demand.

The top European car maker group said its growth could be limited to 5 percent in 2024 compared to 15 percent in 2023 with an annual revenue of 322 billion euros ($349 billion).

That growth rate suggests that the revenue could go up to 338 billion euros this year, higher than LSEG analyst’s 316 billion estimate.
