Cranes & Access

Market Statistics Released

ALLMI recently produced its loader crane industry sales figures for the first half of 2017.  Compiled by an independent third party and with the involvement of the majority of manufacturers represented within the Association, the statistics are broken down into categories based on the tonne-metre rating of the equipment, as well as the application.

The figures show an impressive industry performance in quarters one and two, with strong sales across a range of sectors.  Demand for remotes continues to grow, with over 60% of invoiced sales relating to lorry loaders with control units of this type, and the figure reaching 100% in one particular sector of the market.

The continuing popularity of remote controls reflects the many benefits they bring to lorry loader operation.  However, as ALLMI has previously highlighted on numerous occasions, it is very important to remember that they can create some significant potential hazards if used incorrectly.  Therefore, industry stakeholders are encouraged to use the Association’s freely available ‘Safe Use of Remote Controls’ campaign material, which includes a web-based video, an information leaflet aimed at operators and their immediate supervisors, and a ready-made toolbox-talk template.
