2014 a good year for Construction Machinery: CECE releases Economic Report

2014 was a troubled, yet good, year for the European construction equipment industry. Sales on the European market grew by 9% compared to 2013. Exports showed a slight momentum of growth. Behind only North America, the European construction equipment market has been the second most dynamic region in 2014.  However, there were huge disparities: Southern Europe remains at very low absolute levels whereas markets such as the UK and Germany are not that far away from pre-crisis levels. 

Expectations for 2015 are rather flat, or only featuring a slight growth
