according to the latest report of the economic forecasting company, UK construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd. (Ohr), 2006 is the third year of continuous rapid growth in the sales of global construction machinery and equipment. In 2006, the sales volume of equipment reached 664525 units, with a growth rate of 13.5% compared with the total sales volume of 585460 units in 2005. Among the four major regional markets (China, Europe, North America and Japan) divided by British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd., the sales growth rate of construction machinery equipment in three regions doubled, and only the total sales volume of equipment in North America fell by 5%

Europe

in terms of equipment sales, the European market has the strongest growth, with a total sales volume of 187353 units. Compared with the sales volume of 164439 units in 2005, the growth rate reached 14%. With the exception of Portugal, equipment sales in all major construction machinery markets in Europe have increased

in Europe, the growth rate of equipment sales in Germany is among the highest, with a sales volume of 31812 units, which is mainly due to the unprecedented demand for heavy earth rock machinery in Germany. In 2006, the sales growth rate of Spanish construction machinery market was also higher than the average level in Europe, with a sales volume of 19227 units. The pace of sales growth in France, Italy and the United Kingdom has slowed, but it still maintains a growth momentum, with growth rates of 7%, 6% and 10% respectively

in 2006, the UK was the largest market for construction machinery and equipment in Europe, with sales reaching 33303 units, accounting for 18% of the total sales of construction machinery and equipment in Europe. However, in 2006, the sales volume of equipment in France was almost the same as that in Britain, with 33278 units. Italy followed with 30537 units

in a word, the total sales volume of construction machinery and equipment in the above five countries reached 148157, accounting for 79% of the total demand for equipment in Western Europe

however, some smaller European countries have the strongest sales growth rates. The most notable ones are Denmark and the Netherlands, where the growth rate of equipment sales has reached 34%. Austria, Belgium, Ireland and Norway also performed well, with sales growth rates of 22%, 16%, 16% and 19% respectively - all of the above countries' sales growth rates exceeded the European average

the development trend of the construction machinery market in 2007 is of concern. British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd. predicts that the rapid growth of the construction machinery market for three years is coming to an end, but there will be no sudden decline in the market. It is expected that the sales volume in Europe will fall by only 1% in 2007, and the total sales volume of equipment is expected to be 285830 units - this is the result of cyclical changes in the market, but it will not be a recession. The sales volume of equipment will remain the highest in history. LANXESS invested more than 300 million euros in Antwerp. It is expected that the average annual sales volume of equipment in Europe will remain around 170000 units by 2010 when the market is well received by customers and enters a cyclical low tide. In the 10 years from 1997 to 2006, the average annual sales volume of construction machinery and equipment in Europe was 144751

China

among the four major regional markets listed by British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd., the sales volume of construction machinery and equipment in China ranks second, with a sales growth rate of 22%, mainly due to the continuous rise in the demand for wheel loaders. According to British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd., "for every three construction machinery and equipment sold in China, two wheel loaders account for.". In 2006, the total sales volume of wheel loaders in China reached 126000, while the total sales volume of wheel loaders worldwide (excluding China) was 182294. At present, China is also the largest market for crawler excavators. In 2006, the total sales volume of this kind of equipment reached 33685, accounting for 27% of the total sales volume of 125477 Crawler excavators in the world

according to the prediction of British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd., among the four major regional markets, China will be the only region where the sales volume of construction machinery will continue to grow in 2007. Although the growth rate in 2007 is lower than that in 2006, it will still maintain the level of 7%. The company predicts that the sales growth rate of most equipment types in China will be relatively stable. The company points out that "the most important new trend is that the market ownership of small excavators will rise significantly". British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd. predicts that the sales volume of such equipment will increase by 13%, from 33685 to 38000. Wheel loaders will still occupy the leading position in the sales of construction machinery and equipment in China, and the sales volume will increase by 3% to 130000 units - accounting for 70% of the total sales volume of 186495 wheel loaders in the world

Japan

the sales growth rate of construction machinery and equipment in Japan reached 11% in 2006, mainly because the Japanese construction machinery industry has gradually recovered steadily from the lowest economic point in 2003. In 2006, the total sales volume of construction machinery and equipment in Japan reached 73630 units, and the equipment with the largest sales volume are Crawler excavators (30590 units), small excavators (27700 units) and wheel loaders (11700 units)

British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd. pointed out that the main reasons for the recovery of Japan's construction machinery market are the small growth of public construction, the improvement of private investment environment and the active renewal of equipment by leasing companies. At present, the Southeast Asian market is booming again, and there is a great demand for second-hand construction machinery and equipment, while Japan has relaxed the export policy of second-hand construction machinery and equipment

North America

as mentioned above, North America was the only region where the sales volume of construction machinery and equipment decreased in 2006, and the sales volume of equipment decreased by 5%. Compared with the sales volume of 233469 units in 2005, the sales volume in 2006 was only 222480 units. The main reason is that the sales volume of backhoe loaders (from 29100 to 25050) and skid steer loaders (from 67875 to 57975) has continued to decline. The sales volume of most other types of equipment remained stable, and the sales volume of only a few types of equipment increased significantly

according to the prediction of British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd., the sales volume of construction machinery and equipment in North America will further decline by about 8% in 2007, and then the North American construction machinery market is expected to recover periodically

output of construction machinery and equipment

China is once again in the leading position in the output of construction machinery and equipment. In 2006, China's total output of construction machinery and equipment reached 194972 units, an increase of 23% compared with 2005. British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd. pointed out that China's domestic demand for construction machinery and equipment increased by 21%, and the export volume of construction machinery and equipment climbed to 16500 units, a significant increase of 77%. This is the main reason for the increase in the output of construction machinery and equipment in China

the output of skid steer loaders increased by 97% to 35000; The output of Crawler excavators also increased to 35000 units, an increase of 45%. With the increasing popularity of small excavators in other parts of the world, the output of such equipment in China has increased by 54%, more than 15000

in 2006, the output of construction machinery and equipment in Japan reached the highest level in five years, and the total output of all kinds of construction machinery and equipment was 205700. The output of Crawler excavators increased from 57730 in 2005 to 77000 in 2006, and the output of wheel loaders increased from 12400 to 18200. Small excavators are undoubtedly the stars of the construction machinery market. In 2005, Japanese manufacturers produced a total of 64370 small excavators. In 2006, the output of such equipment increased by 45%, an increase of 28890

in 2006, the output of construction machinery and equipment in Europe was 206200, reaching an unprecedented high. British engineering machinery Consulting Co., Ltd., which can greatly extend its service life, pointed out that "the output of European construction machinery and equipment has unexpectedly increased by 40% in just three years". Like other regions, the output of small excavators increased strongly, with a growth rate of 24%, reaching 47000 units. Sales of telescopic forklifts, crawler excavators, articulated dump trucks and wheel loaders have increased. Citing the report of British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd., "the continuous growth of demand in Europe naturally leads to the improvement of production level, but the importance of export volume cannot be ignored."

like the decrease in sales, the output of construction machinery and equipment in North America decreased slightly in 2006. The total output of construction machinery and equipment in North America in 2006 was 206000 units, which was lower than that of 216350 units in 2005. Skid steer loaders account for 38% of the total output of construction machinery and equipment in North America, with 78850 units in 2006. The output of other construction machinery and equipment remained relatively stable in 2006, except that the output of articulated dump trucks, asphalt concrete pavers and crawler excavators increased. However, the output of small excavators and skid steer loaders fell for the first time in five years. The output of construction machinery and equipment in North America is about 15000 more than the domestic demand, which shows that the export scale of construction machinery and equipment in North America in 2006 is quite large. British construction machinery Consulting Co., Ltd. pointed out: "in terms of import volume, articulated dump trucks are the most important imported products, while in terms of import volume, the most important product is small excavators."

in a word, although the global construction machinery market is likely to decline moderately, there is no need to worry that the construction machinery industry will fall into depression - this is entirely the cyclical feature of the self-regulation of the construction machinery market. The unprecedented prosperity of the construction machinery market may be about to leave, but the future prospect is still very bright
