Alexandre Saubot expects 2016 to stay steady – good news considering the strength of 2015.
Wonder what the market for lifting equipment will be in 2016? You need only look at 2015 for an answer.

“Globally, we expect the market to be close to 2015, with some differences in individual markets,” said Alexandre Saubot, chief operating offer at Haulotte Group.

Last year was the first time sales exceeded 2007 numbers, so a repeat of 2015 would be welcome in the industry. “It’s a good sign,” Saubot said.

Looking ahead, Saubot said sales in Europe should be steady and perhaps a bit higher in 2016. Major rental companies will drive sales.

Asia Pacific and the Middle East have strengths and weaknesses. Japan is strong, while China continues to struggle, as do many parts of the Mideast. Still, Sabout expects overall results in the region to show growth.

North America will remain stable, which is good because the market has been healthy. Latin America will continue to struggle, in part because of problems in Brazil. “We do not anticipate any significant rebound,” Sabout said.

Haulotte expects sales growth of about 5% in 2016, Sabout said.
