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.

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