Helping farmhand: Increased agricultural subsidies have driven industry demand

Operators in the Agricultural Machinery and Equipment Wholesaling industry vend agricultural machinery and equipment on the wholesale market, to livestock farms, horticultural farms, to the consumer and recreational sector, and to other agricultural businesses. Many factors can influence industry revenue, such as economic conditions, climate conditions, business and consumer sentiment, and the real effective exchange rate. While international trade date is not recorded at a wholesale level, operators do sell imported machinery on the domestic market, and operators that manufacture and wholesale their products also export their products overseas. In 2016, the currency of the United Kingdom, Ireland's largest trading partner, fell more.
