Off-Highway Research’s managing director, Chris Sleight, talks to International Construction’s Andy Brown in more detail about this revised forecast. He explains why this fall of 19% is not evenly spread around the world, which markets are expected to perform better and worse than others, as well as which segments of construction equipment are expected to be the most affected in terms of sales.
