According to the latest data of the British Society of construction machinery (CEA), in the first half of 2021, more than 18000 construction machinery and equipment were sold in the UK, an increase of 73% over the same period in 2020, an increase of 4% and 7% respectively compared with the same period in 2018 and 2019 before the epidemic.
Among them, the sales volume of construction and earth moving machinery in June increased by 75% over the same period in 2020. In the second quarter, the total sales volume of equipment reached about 10000 units.
In terms of models, the most powerful growth momentum in the UK market in the first half of 2021 is the telescopic arm fork loader, with a sales volume of about 2400 units; The best-selling small excavators (10t and below) still sell about 10500 units, but the growth rate is significantly lower than that of other models. In the first half of the year, the sales volume of Crawler excavators was about 3400, with a year-on-year increase of 97.2%.
"Like many other industries, the industry is experiencing supply chain shortages and rising prices for some products and raw materials," CEA said. The rapidly growing sales volume seems to confirm the potential of current market demand. " Although many people expected that the construction machinery industry would rebound after the market downturn caused by the epidemic, such strong growth was somewhat higher than expected even with the increase of government infrastructure investment.
