SUPPLY AND DISTRIBUTION

Supplier analysis including:
• Overview of supply structure – competitive, fragmented sector with most players operating in relatively limited product sectors due to the high number of specialist operators.
Market shares of major hire companies.
• Review of major hire companies – turnover, branches and areas of specialisation.

This market is extremely competitive and relatively fragmented. It ranges from national equipment rental companies to local independents operating in the market. Companies vary widely in terms of geographical coverage, financial resources, brand recognition and equipment offered. Some companies are more reliant on construction, whereas others have developed diverse markets, such as manufacturing, recycling and events.

The market experienced low level growth in 2019 as construction output slowed and concerns regarding Brexit negotiations impacted on the levels of confidence and investment.

Sectors experiencing good growth across the review period 2016 to 2019, thereby stimulating higher levels of hire demand, include infrastructure, industrial and entertainment and leisure sectors. In contrast, construction activity in some end use sectors fell significantly such as retail, offices and health. Infrastructure remains the key end use sector, although different parts of the infrastructure sector have performed differently.

The Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 significantly impacted plant hire market development, although the second lockdown did not impact hire demand as much as the first because construction and infrastructure sectors continued to operate.
