The current buoyancy in the worldwide market for wheeled loaders is expected to be sustained over the coming years. While unit sales will decline slightly, the worth of the sector will continue to climb, thanks to growth in high value markets.
Sales of wheeled loaders in China grew 45 per cent last year to 70,400 units. Although still popular machines, wheeled loaders were out-sold by excavators for the first time in China’s history last year, and conventional products are being challenged by low cost, low quality ‘economical’ loaders in the smaller size classes.
