Optimistic outlook for UK paver sales

Sales of asphalt finishers in the UK have continued at a high level in recent years according to a new Equipment Analysis from Off-Highway Research. Government promises to increase investment in road building and maintenance mean there is optimism in the industry for the coming 12 months at least.

“Current demand is at the highest level seen in a decade,” said the report. “The high level of sales that occurred in 2005-2007 means that many of these machines are now becoming old, and are in need of replacement: the result has been the recent surge in demand, while the continuation of new engine emission standards has also been a factor in the increase in sales as many contractors have been required to upgrade their fleets. In 2016 there was the major change from Tier 4 interim to Tier 4 final machines, but it will be well into 2017 before the process is completed.

“Beyond 2017, the outlook for the market is promising if all the government’s commitments to infrastructure spending are met, but the prevailing economic climate at the time will largely determine demand. The outlook is promising, with the government committed to increased expenditure on new road building and maintenance, but experience shows that these commitments can change very quickly.”

The 36-page report looks in details at the market size, with analysis of finisher sales by different configurations and paving width classes. Further sections include analysis of production & component sourcing, market shares, marketing and distribution arrangements, pricing, machine population and end-users, among others.
