Global & China Forklift Market Scenario Examined by ResearchInChina in Its Report Now Available at

13 Nov 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The world forklift industry registered positive growth in 2013, with sales volumes achieving more than 1 million units. The growth is attributed primarily to the continuous logistics development along with the increasing tendency for substituting the manual work with machinery.

China is now the world’s major forklift consumer. As of 2013, the forklift sales volumes in the country rose by 13.9% in comparison with 2012 and totaled 329,000 units. The country’s share of the world forklift sales stood at around 33.2% in 2013. Meantime, the Chinese forklift export volumes were estimated at 113,000 units, an increase by 15.3% from 2012. The Chinese forklift sector is forecast to view stable growth in the years ahead. The sales in the country are likely to surpass the 400,000 units mark by 2015, whilst the export volume is forecast to achieve 150,000 units.

Given the enhancing awareness of such problems as high noise pollution and exhaust emissions, the electric forklifts are widely utilized in Europe, the Americas and China, which accounted for nearly 80%, 60% and less than 30% of the world demand in 2013, respectively.
