Impact of BREXIT on the UK Construction Equipment Industry

Impact of BREXIT on the UK Construction Equipment Industry

In June 2016 the population of the United Kingdom voted for the country to relinquish its membership of the European Union. This unexpected result triggered a change of leadership in the British government and has caused a period of uncertainty for the UK economy. It is likely to have far-reaching short- and long-term implications for the nation’s economy. In this Special Report, Off-Highway Research examines the immediate impact of the ‘Brexit’ vote on the UK’s construction equipment industry, and discusses the potential long-term implications for the sector, both in terms of production and sales.
