|There have been some shocks on global stock markets, but there’s still plenty of reason to be confident about the forklift sector. The financial results we’ve been seeing lately have been very promising, with far more black ink than red.
The billions wiped off the global stock exchanges represent a shift of confidence, rather than weakness among the businesses which have seen their stock prices affected. That’s the unfortunate part of the stock market - that it reflects sentiment rather than financial performance.
But the forklift market has withstood many challenges - market collapses, sectoral swings, natural disasters and even fraud. And it has always bounced back. So there’s no reason why the industry will not shrug off the recent woes and get back to the heavy lifting.
