European Yellow Goods Leasing Report

Produced by Leaseurope together with specialist lease consulting firm Invigors in 2010, the European Yellow Goods Leasing Report looks at the impact of the extreme downturn in sales volumes experienced by the construction equipment industry at that time, including how asset finance could play a key role in the sector’s recovery. It was the first European-level report to focus specifically on construction equipment leasing, one of the cornerstones of the European market. The report builds on views gathered from European leasing industry leaders, together with those of the European equipment rental industry, construction equipment manufacturers, distributors and dealers.
