For the penultimate month of the year, the industry saw a swift 16.5% monthly drop on 2020, which amounts to 543 sales this year, against 650 in November 2020, in the latest figures released by the AEA (Agricultural Engineer’s Association). 

Worst Month for 2021 Doesn't Stop Momentum in Tractor Segment

With September being the only other month for declining figures, 2021 has remained a strong year for the agricultural industry, which is bouncing back far better than the commercial vehicle sector. 

The current registrations for tractors above 50hp have, so far, reached 11,134, against the total seen in last November of 9,604 registrations. With the healthy 15.7% increase, 2021 has seen a fortified industry maintain impressive momentum over the initial eleven months, which has allowed for the two drops in the third and fourth quarters to leave little impression on the running total for the year.
