Mixed conditions have been the norm for operators in the Farm and Construction Machinery Wholesaling industry over the past five years. The global financial crisis hit industry revenue hard, with slow revenue growth persisting during the fallout of the crisis in 2009-10. The private sector halted capital expenditure projects in a bid to reduce costs, dramatically cutting demand for construction machinery. This was also the case in the booming Mining division. Additionally, the agriculture sector was only just beginning to recover from drought, making investment in new farm machinery almost impossible.
Companies in this industry wholesale agricultural machinery, agricultural implements, earthmoving machinery and other construction machinery or equipment. They also wholesale parts for such equipment.
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.
