ERA Rental Statistics
This is the European Rental Association's first market statistics report of the construction equipment rental market in Europe.
The report has been the work of the ERA's Statistics Committee in collaboration with IHS Global Insight, the global economic and financial analysis company.
Work began back in 2006 when an evaluation of current European data was undertaken. The evaluation focused on 11 countries and 13 product categories and mapped the current state of market data across Europe. Its main conclusion was that data is very sparse and heterogeneous in nature. From this basis, it was decided to research key overall data for the European market.
Contents of the Report
For each country, the Report includes the following detailed information on European and national markets:
- The total rental revenue
- The number of rental locations
- The number of employees
- The number of companies
- Penetration: Sales of Equipment (to the rental industry versus total sales)
- Penetration: Equipment Population

For product types, data is presented in an aggregated form for each national and European market.
The Report has gathered data from national statistical offices, industry reports and results from its own survey. Data has been gathered from twelve European countries covering thirteen product types.
