The Farm and Construction Machinery Wholesaling industry has recorded mixed results during the five years to 2012-13. During the mid-2000s, there was a long run of growth driven by a boom in construction activity. Then revenue declined steeply following the financial crisis as construction activity came to a stop, while ongoing drought conditions weighed on farm production. Since then, revenue growth has strengthened as surging investment in the resources sector and improved agricultural conditions stimulated sales of equipment and machinery. Severe floods in 2010-11 hurt demand for agricultural equipment but reconstruction efforts boosted sales of construction machinery during 2011-12.
Companies in this industry wholesale agricultural machinery, agricultural implements, earth-moving machinery and other construction machinery or equipment. They also wholesale parts for such equipment.
