Audrey Courant, Europlatform 2019, Nice, France

Industry stakeholders are invited to join a free webinar on 20 October at 12 pm GMT looking at the state of the global powered access rental market and sharing key findings from the 2020 reports produced exclusively for the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) by DuckerFrontier.

Those who join the IPAF webinar will get an insight into the latest and most up-to-date powered access rental market data available. Lead consultants Audrey Courant and Anne Myon of DuckerFrontier will explore the data presented in the forthcoming IPAF Global Powered Access Rental Market Report 2020, which covers global MEWP market data each year from 2008, with a particular focus on 2019 and gauging business sentiment and confidence from operators concerning the impacts of COVID-19 and the end to the UK’s transition period before it leaves the EU on 1 January 2021.

The presenters will also examine macro data trends and how the European market compares to the North American market and other regions, while the report also features a focus on the market in China, following on from 2019’s report.

The award-winning IPAF rental market reports, produced by DuckerFrontier, are presented in an easy-to-read format and are the definitive guide to powered access rental markets. The reports include an estimate of the size of the MEWP rental fleet worldwide, with a breakdown by region and machine type.

Peter Douglas, IPAF CEO & MD, will introduce the webinar, and there will also be contributions from Murray Pollok, Managing Editor, International Rental News, will give his own market overview, complementing the editorial summaries he provides in the reports. Users from the industry will also give insights into how they use the reports to inform their business strategy and why they find the data useful.

Peter Douglas comments: “IPAF’s global powered access rental reports offer unique business intelligence and valuable insight into the state of the market, our members, industry stakeholders and investment strategists use the annual reports to help shape their planning and decision-making processes, and for this reason, we are pleased to be able to present a webinar for the first time outlining some of the key industry trends.

“Owing to the global pandemic publication of the reports this year has been slightly delayed to allow for the data gathering process to take place and to better allow a clearer view of what the future holds for powered access in key global markets. We thank the team at DuckerFrontier for their granular analysis and all those who have helped to make the webinar possible.

“We also especially wish to thank those companies who have sponsored the webinar: Hinowa, MCS, JESH Lift, Green Power Design Astri Company Limited and Sunward Equipment Group. We hope those tuning in will find the session useful and thank those who have submitted questions for the presenters to address.”
