There’s some optimism about the state of the market, with major player Jungheinrich noting a jump in global demand for forklifts. The German manufacturer reports that the market grew 10% in the first quarter, reaching 272,300 trucks, compared to the prior year’s 247,200 trucks.
That optimism is being seen at the industry’s premier trade show, CeMAT, which is in its final stages.
