RentalTracker Results Suggest Cautious Rental Outlook in Europe

The second quarter of the year saw very little overall change in business sentiment in Europe’s equipment rental industry, with still no clear trend emerging following last year’s Eurozone concerns.

The Nordic region and the UK are the most optimistic current markets and are also reporting the most favorable conditions, while overall investment plans show a modest hardening of views, with slightly fewer companies planning significant increases in investment this year and next.

The balance of opinion on business conditions at the end of June was zero, which means that the same proportions of respondents (22.9%) were reporting improvements and deteriorations in conditions. The majority, 54.3%, reported no change.
