Market Trends Report: Used Heavy Machinery and Industrial Vehicles, European Edition Q3 2021


A free report covering the offer and demand trends

In our quarterly Market Trends Report, we provide valuable observations on several used equipment market trends in Europe based on data available through Mascus, the leading European online listing service for used heavy machinery and industrial vehicles, and Ritchie Bros., the global leader in heavy machinery and industrial vehicles disposition.

With this edition, we take a closer look at the volume of machines for sale and the demand registered in the third quarter of 2021 for mini excavators, telescopic handlers, diesel forklifts, and boom lifts (articulated and telescopic).

“New equipment deliveries of certain products and brands have been announced to incur delays until mid, end of 2022 and even early 2023. As a result, the demand in used assets has gone up and combined with the rise in new prices, the used equipment pricing has consequently seen unprecedented increases month after month.”
