According to the ‘Clear’ bureau, the European trailer market increased by 27.2% in 2010, which brought its improvement up to 40.7% compared to the historically low figure of 2009. These figures only return the market to its 2003 level, however.
For 2012, Clear is forecasting that the market will fall, due of course to the worsened economic outlook in the Euro zone. Optimism remains for 2013 and 2014, particularly in view of the ageing rolling stock.
