1.1 Introduction and definition of the forklift market
Forklifts are these self-propelled machinery - designed for lifting and transferring loads in factories and warehouses . This market is actually one of the segments of the handling equipment market, mainly used in intralogistics or construction The handling equipment the term "handling equipment" also refers to all machines and logistical tools used for the transport or support of loads requiring physical effort. Consequently, the market for the rental of handling equipment covers all the services of rental of forklifts, hand trucks, pallet trucks, etc.
This market is particularly dependent on the economic situation, especially given its main outlets. Indeed, the activity on this market is clearly correlated to the level of activity of the public works, construction, events and automotive markets, among others. In addition, this market has experienced in France numerous shocks over the past two decades . Faced with declining sales in the 1990s, the major forklift manufacturers converted to rental . This trend continues today, with the development of new networks by the historical manufacturers
The industrial truck market is divided into 3 main categories s, the thermal forklifts (diesel or gas), the carts electric front ends and the shopping trolleys (electric) mainly for logistics platforms.
the share of electric forklifts in the French fleet has risen from By way of comparison, in Germany, the trend is similar, with the share of electric vehicles rising from 46 to 59% over the same period. [ My Forklift ]
L es growth drivers now seem to be on the side of automation of intralogistics -as evidenced by the many alliances between forklift manufacturers and robotics players- and electrical machines to the new French regulations. The development of the market is now reflected in the coexistence of numerous ranges of trolleys with a payload capacity generally ranging from 1.5 to 4.5 tonnes. This diversity is also reflected in the lifting height (more than 10 meters for some models), the power supply (gas, diesel, electric, hydrogen), etc. Forklift trucks in France, which are mainly gas-powered, are moving towards electric. According to an industry expert, more electric forklifts are now sold than gas or diesel forklifts.
The immediate effect of the COVID-10 crisis was to drastically reduce activity in this market, given the significant impact that the restrictive measures had on the main outlets
