Before Covid-19 struck, the access equipment industry was already in a state of change and expansion, thanks to new and emerging markets, continued mergers and acquisitions in mature markets, a raft of new entrants in the manufacturing sector and a significant shift towards hybrid and electic-powered equipment. Now that the Covid-19 pandemic has created an additional set of industry challenges, the panellist will discuss how the global MEWP landscape will evolve.
