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.
A total of 2,335 asphalt finishers were sold in China last year, a 24 per cent increase on sales levels in 2016. The market is dominated by crawler machines, which made up 93 per cent of the market last year.
