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

CECE new Position Paper on Revision of Exhaust Emissions legislation for NRMM

CECE has updated its position paper regarding the NRMM Exhaust Emissions directive, specifying that the sector seeks a 6 month extension of the transition period.

The other key points in the CECE position paper remain unchanged: CECE asks to re-introduce the replacement engine provision as contained in the present exhaust emissions directive, and to secure the adoption of the new requirements by the end of 2015 in order to preserve the necessary lead-time. The industry, furthermore, supports to set exhaust emission limit values per engine power class, the staggering of the introduction dates per engine power class, the targeting of 2019 and 2020 as introduction dates and the possibility of early type approval.

CECE also marginally updated its position on the Replacement Engines issue, amending references to publication numbers and dates. Both papers can be found here .
