Unacea at Bauma with an institutional booth and a joint exhibition area

In the first nine months of 2022, 17,163 construction machines have been placed on the Italian market, up 21% if compared to the same period of 2021. In more details, 16,626 earth moving machines (+22%) and 537 road machines (-4%) were sold.

Indeed, comparing the results between the third quarter 2022 and 2021, the growth appears more moderate in the earth moving sector (+17%), while the road machines market falls -24%. On the other hand, although double-digit growth still continues to affect the mini and compact machines segment, the other product lines show the first signs of bending.

“The Italian construction equipment market continues to grow in the third quarter of 2022, although less if compared to 2021 – said Michele Vitulano, president of Unacea. The government’s expansive measures implemented during the pandemic, will continue to positively influence the market almost until the end of the year. On the other side, the difficult international situation, the tension of the energy market and the inflationary pressures anticipate scenarios of great uncertainty for the upcoming months.”

Market figures, based upon the sales of manufacturing and import companies, have been released by Unacea on the occasion of Bauma inauguration, one of the most important construction equipment trade fairs in the world, which will run until 30th October in Munich.

Unacea, the Italian construction equipment association, attends the show with two booths: an institutional space together with ITA – Italian trade agency (EOE.26) which will provide a working position and a lounge area to the over 500 Italian exhibitors at the fair, and an Italian joint exhibit area (A5-135-131-133), which will host the companies Kiwitron, Lanatec and Main.

Bauma is the international trade fair of construction equipment, mining and building material machines. The last edition of 2019, registered more than 3,500 exhibitors and 630,000 visitors. The Italian participation at Bauma, with more than 500 exhibitor companies, is second only to the German presence.
