German Construction Machinery Industry Demands Stable Framework Conditions In Europe
Most markets in Northern and Western Europe are at a similarly high level, while Southern and Central Eastern Europe continued their recovery in 2018 and is maintaining their growth, albeit at a naturally lower volume. Growth should continue until the industry highlight bauma, which takes place from April 8 to 14, after which experts expect a slight downturn. Although a moderate decline is anticipated, the German market will remain very strong.
“We are at an all-time high, but this time the road that led us here was more stable and sustainable than in 2007. This gives us hope that the industry will be able to maintain this good level for longer,” comments Franz-Josef Paus, Chairman of the Construction Equipment and Building Material Machinery association. He believes that only the lack of qualified personnel on the customer side had a dampening effect and that the construction industry in Germany and Europe remains strong and stable overall. These positive prospects must not be jeopardized by political chaos. There are challenges to be mastered all over the world.
