The United Kingdom has a relatively small agricultural sector and a sizable food trade deficit. The Agricultural and Forestry Machinery Manufacturing industry in the United Kingdom is dominated by large foreign-owned companies, only a few of which have manufacturing operations in the United Kingdom. Locally owned operators tend to focus on small niche markets that are ignored by the big operators. International trade has a large influence on industry performance. However, both exports and imports are inflated by re-exports.
This industry manufactures equipment used by the agricultural and forestry industries. This includes various types of tractors and machinery. The manufacture of lawnmowers, agricultural trailers, soil preparation, planting and fertilising machinery, milking machines, and harvesting machinery are included in this industry. The manufacture of non-power driven agricultural machinery, conveyors for farm use, and cream separators are excluded from this industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
