News Item: ERA Market Report 2021 Indicates a Return to Growth

The ERA Market Report 2021 is the leading source of market intelligence on the European equipment rental market and the only European-wide industry benchmark.

This edition, comprising market trends and international comparisons, uses a common methodology and ‎definition to analyse 15 European markets, plus the Baltic states, with detailed market ‎size results for 2018–19 (actual), 2020–21 (estimates) and 2022–23 (forecasts). These countries account for more than 95% of the equipment rental industry in the EU, the European Free Trade Association ‎‎(EFTA) and the United Kingdom.

The report contains detailed market information for the years 2018 to 2023 and key indicators, including rental turnover, fleet value and investments. This year includes a more accurate estimate of the UK rental market, with an improved methodology for evaluating cross-hire, as well as detailed data on the US rental market. The figures are based on official statistics for NACE rev. 2 code 77.32: "Renting and leasing of construction and civil engineering machinery and equipment without operator."

The report is available digitally for ERA members (EUR 500) and for non-members (EUR 1,200). To order a copy, please contact the European Rental Association at
