In a joint project Off-Highway Research and Roland Berger have launched a free White Paper which discusses the supply chain issues being faced by the construction equipment industry, strategies to overcome them and the long-term implications for the industry.
International Construction has released a new podcast in which Off-Highway Research managing director Chris Sleight talks to editor Andy Brown about the current downturn in the Chinese market.
Although a mature market, there are growth prospects in the compact segment in particular.
Off-Highway Research’s new Customer Group Database Service provides information on the different types of buyer for each machine type, and how this has changed over time. Annual sales for each equipment type in each country are broken down into a number of customer groups such as contractors, extraction (mining & quarrying) , rental etc. The breakdown is in terms of both unit sales and the nominal US$ value of the sales.
As well as allowing clients to view individual countries and machine types in isolation, this data can be analysed across multiple countries and equipment to provide insights into the profound changes which take place over time in equipment buying patterns.
