Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • State and federal government budgets drive demand for rental equipment in institutional buildings
  • Profit margins have improved over the period, which has encouraged entry into the industry
  • Interest rates are expected to rise considerably, but this is unlikely to significantly hinder growth
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Industrial Equipment Rental and Leasing industry offers a range of products, including industrial machinery, some construction equipment, entertainment products and medical devices, for fixed-term use. Renting expensive equipment allows client companies to free up spending for other purposes, such as expanding operations or hiring employees. This trend has sped up in the wake of the recession after demand dampened and many companies found themselves making payments on purchased equipment they no longer needed. In the coming years, construction activity is anticipated to grow in earnest.

    General industrial equipment rental

    This product segment broadly covers a variety of industrial goods, equipment and machinery that industry operators rent. The rental of agricultural and farm equipment, industrial trucks and vehicles, manufacturing and textile machinery, metalworking machinery, pallets, skids, coin-operated arcade machines and woodworking machinery, and modular and mobile buildings, among other product types, comprises an estimated 28.4% of industry revenue in 2016. The widely distributed demand for this segment's products ensures that it occupies a fairly stable share of overall revenue; however, the downturn of industrial output in the United States led demand for many niche products in this segment to fall during the past five years.
