FederUnacoma Reveal State of Agricultural Machinery Market in Italy
Federazione Nazionale Costruttori Macchine per l'Agricoltura (FederUnacoma) published its figures for the agricultural machinery registrations for the first five months of the year with tractor sales coming in 11% below 2021 at the same stage.
Problems in the Supply Chain Continuing to Impact Deliveries
9,182 tractors were registered in the first five months of year compared to 10,139 in 2021, as Lombardia and Piemonte recorded the highest number of registrations. Decreases were also recorded for transporters, trailers and telehandlers in the agricultural machinery sector with drops of 13.5% (237 units in 2022 to date), 9% (3,499 units) and 24.3% (470 units) respectively with only combine-harvesters seeing growth to the tune of 2.3% (132 units).
Despite the downturn, FederUnacoma did clarify that "the market levels still remained high" due to "a level of sales that is 13% higher than that of the last 4 years".
At FederUnacoma's assembly, its President Alessandro Malavolti underlined the fact that the market wasn't seeing a decrease in demand but rather continuous issues with the supply chain which was preventing manufacturers in the presence of a high number of orders from respecting delivery times.
