The Leaseurope Index Quarterly survey tracks aggregate European level financial performance indicators four times per year, providing an up-to-date look at the financial health of the leasing sector in Europe.
In addition to the regular quarterly report, Leaseurope publishes a more detailed supplement, namely the Segment Survey. This annual report shows aggregate financial KPI ratios for each of four asset types, namely equipment, real estate, passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

“The first quarter of this year shows a positive performance with new business volumes growing and portfolios expanding on the back of significant recovery last year. The European leasing industry managed to continue improving financial indicators, particularly income and profitability. Going forward, supply chain constraints as well as rising energy and other input costs are expected to deteriorate the demand outlook for business investment across Europe. Despite these economic headwinds, the Recovery and Resilience Fund and the energy transition efforts are projected to support investment growth in both 2022 and 2023. With this forecast, together with a steady increase in the use of leasing for green transitions, European lessors should be prepared to leverage on opportunities within a challenging business environment.”
The Leaseurope Index is the only survey that tracks trends in key performance indicators for the leasing sector at European level. A representative sample of large pan-European leasing companies report their figures for each indicator to Leaseurope, which aggregates the results on a confidential basis. Due to the aggregate nature, no inferences can be made about any individual company’s performance based on published data. The sample represents a significant share of the total European leasing market and is broadly representitive in terms of geographic and asset coverage, including general leasing companies, automotive lessors, captive equipment vendors etc.
