Covid response provides unexpected boost to global markets

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the cyclical construction equipment market was expected to fall in 2020 and beyond. However, huge stimulus in China caused global sales to remain at 2019's high last year, and a new record may be achieved in 2021.

Covid impact on Europe relatively severe with -16 per cent fall

The European construction equipment market was one of the worst affected by the Covid pandemic in 2020 and there will be only modest growth this year. However, the volume of equipment sold in Europe remains at a healthy level.


Stimulus lifts Chinese demand by 30 per cent

Sales of construction equipment in China grew 30 per cent last year to take the market to levels not seen since the last stimulus-driven boom of 2010-2011. Further modest growth in 2021 is forecast to take demand over the 500,000 unit mark for the first time.
