It is expected that the year-on-year decline in construction machinery sales in May will narrow Mini Excavator Rollers

1、 In April, the sales volume of various construction machinery decreased both month on month
Affected by the continuous impact of the epidemic and the low operating rate of real estate and infrastructure projects, the sales volume of excavators, the core representative of construction machinery, decreased both month on month in April.Mini Excavator Rollers

From January to April 2022, a total of 264 electric loaders were sold, all of which were 5-ton loaders, including 84 in April.

2、 Domestic demand remained sluggish

A number of domestic listed companies in the construction machinery sector announced the results of the first quarter of 2022. From the data released by each company, the overall performance of the industry is not optimistic, and most enterprises experienced a sharp year-on-year decline in revenue and net profit in the first quarter. This shows that the rise in the price of raw materials leads to an increase in production costs. At the same time, the terminal demand slows down, the sales pressure is large, and the profitability of construction machinery enterprises decreases.

According to the PMI in April recently released by the National Bureau of statistics, the business activity index of the construction industry was 52.7%, down 5.4 percentage points from the previous month, and the expansion of the construction industry slowed down. In terms of market demand, the new order index of the construction industry was 45.3%, down 5.9 percentage points from the previous month. Market activity decreased and demand fell.

In April 2022, 16097 projects were started across the country, down 3.8% month on month; The total investment was 5771.2 billion yuan, a month on month decrease of 17.1% and a year-on-year increase of 41.1%. Although macro policies continue to release good news in real estate infrastructure, the increase in actual demand is extremely limited.

At the same time, the epidemic control also had a certain impact on the downstream construction. In April, the highways in many places in China were temporarily closed for control, and some construction sites were closed for management. Due to the lack of transportation capacity, the long transportation cycle of building materials, slow construction or shutdown on the construction site, it was difficult to release the demand for construction machinery.Mini Excavator Rollers
