Market Outlook of Global Construction and Agriculture Machinery Industry and Impact of COVID Pandemic

The overall construction equipment market is going to contract by 10-15% in terms of shipment in 2021 and will start recovering in third quarter in the projected year.


Lewes, DE -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/09/2020 --Due to the significant, negative effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on dealers and retail customers, the equipment manufacturers have provided short-term payment relief to dealers and retail customers on financing receivables, which includes retail notes, wholesale notes, revolving charge accounts, and sales-type and direct financing leases.
