World Forestry Equipment

As Quoted In FORDAQ

Gains will be driven by new engine emissions standards in the EU and US, raising average equipment prices, as well as by the ongoing mechanization of forestry operations in developing regions.

World demand to rise 4.5% annually through 2019

World demand for forestry equipment (including both purpose-built and converted machinery) is forecast to climb 4.5 percent annually to $9.3 billion in 2019. This will represent a moderation from the 2009-2014 pace of increase, a period during which market gains were spurred by a rebound in roundwood production from lows posted during the 2009 global recession, as well as by the institution of new engine emissions standards in the European Union (EU) and US, raising average equipment prices and total spending. Sales advances will be driven in part by the ongoing mechanization of forestry operations in developing regions.

High-value machinery to pace developed markets

In mature, developed world markets, an acceleration in economic growth and a generally favorable fixed investment climate will support product demand as forestry companies work to reduce their operating costs and increase output through the use of technologically sophisticated, high-value machinery. Additional government regulatory actions are also likely to bolster sales of new, higher priced units engineered to meet these requirements. In deflated, constant dollar terms, forestry equipment demand will rise at a 2.3 percent annual rate through 2019, marginally faster than growth in industrial roundwood output.

US to see most gains

The US and Canada together represent the largest geographic market for forestry equipment, accounting for one-third of global product demand in 2014. Western Europe is the second largest market, with a 23 percent share of all equipment sales in 2014, followed by the Asia/Pacific region, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Africa/Mideast region. The US will record the largest increases of any forestry equipment market in dollar terms through 2019, supported by a pickup in economic activity and construction expenditures, a healthy capital spending environment, and growth in roundwood output. Brazil, a considerably smaller but still sizable forestry machinery market, will register larger increases in percentage terms, averaging 6.5 percent per year through 2019. A number of smaller national markets -- including New Zealand, Poland, Finland, and Indonesia -- will also post above-average demand gains. On a regional basis, Latin America and Eastern Europe will record the fastest sales increases in percentage terms. Western Europe will register the weakest market advances, restricted by the already high mechanization rates in Sweden and Finland, the largest national forestry machinery markets in the region. However, lower mechanization levels in other parts of Western Europe will provide some impetus to growth in product demand through 2019.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $7.4 billion world forestry equipment industry. It presents forecasts for 2019 and 2024 by type (e.g., felling, extracting, on-site processing, parts and attachments), for six world regions and 14 major countries. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 39 industry players, including Deere, STIHL, and Hitachi.
