July saw continued growth in buyer interest in the used equipment market of 1.82% after a similar increase in June. After reductions in growth during April and May, this reversal will be welcome during a traditionally quiet period for the market.

Particularly strong growth was seen in the woodworking, broadcast and printing sectors, all of which saw double-digit increases.

Used Construction Equipment -2.54%
Used Manufacturing Equipment -10.09%

Negative growth was seen in a number of markets which have performed well over the year to date. These included the manufacturing and plastics equipment markets which saw growth shrink by 11% and 17% respectively.
