The tractor market in the United Kingdom closes 2023 with 11,816 machines registered (+2%), almost the same levels reached in the previous year. The report released by the AEA, the British association of manufacturers and importers of agricultural machinery, highlights that tractor registrations in 2023 remained very close to the average of the last five years (between 11,500 and 12,000 units), with the exception of 2020, the year of the pandemic. The positive phase of the market - according to the AEA - is the result of the failure to fulfill the orders accumulated in the two-year period 2021-2022. These delays are due to interruptions in the supply chain caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian war. In the long term, the AEA predicts an increase in the average power of the vehicles sold, which has steadily risen since 1990 when it was 90 HP, and which in 2023 reached 174 HP, over 5 horsepower more than in 2022.
