News service and business centre for materials handlingHOME
In the lull between financial reporting seasons, it's worth noting that the forklift market seems to defy other business trends and keeps growing.
A new report estimates that growth will continue at 6.1% each year until 2021.
The analysis from Research and Markets tips the global market to increase from USD41.9 billion last year to USD56.3 billion in 2021.
Of course, not all markets nor all sectors will grow at the same pace, so a bit of caution is still required. But it seems that there's plenty of room for optimism.
