Drop in Registrations for 2022 Following Year of Recovery in 2021

In a strong year of recovery for the industry in 2021, the 500 tractors registered for 2022 almost matches exactly 2020’s 501 sales in January, which was a 27.6% decrease against 2019. In January 2021, there were 580 sales of tractors above 50hp, which makes for a 13.8% decrease for this year's year-to-date sales.

With 2021 recording a 15.8% year-on-year increase, this was a healthy return to form for an industry that was nevertheless seeing disruptions,which are continuing into this year, which may in part explain the drop which has started off 2022.
