Italian market, the 2022 balance

Declining sales for the agricultural machinery market in 2022. This trend, in part physiological after the boom of 2021, was influenced by the problems in the supply chain, the increases in raw material prices and the uncertainties of the geopolitical scenario. The statistics compiled by FederUnacoma, based on the data relating to registrations provided by the Ministry of Transport, indicate a contraction for all the main product categories. In fact, tractors marked -17.1% with 20,217 units registered, combines -9.7%, telehandlers -21.2%, halting a growth that had continued since 2019. Transporters and trailers also closed in the red, falling respectively by 21 .4% and 11.3%. Market developments for 2023, according to the manufacturers' association, are still uncertain and linked to economic variables.
