New lease of life: Constrained confidence has encouraged firms to reduce costs by renting

The Truck Rental and Leasing industry has grown over the past five years. This is largely attributed to rising demand from road freight transport operators. Demand for industry services increased in line with disposable income and consumer confidence, which increased spending on goods. Industry revenue growth slowed towards the end of the current period as economic uncertainty constrained consumer spending and demand from road freight transport. However, subdued economic conditions encouraged several firms to rent or lease vehicles, rather than making large capital investments by directly purchasing vehicles. Despite historically high volatility, revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 3.7% to reach £2.6 billion over the five years through more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Growth slowed towards the end of the period as uncertainty constrained consumer spending
  • The Low Emission Zone has forced many operators to update their fleets
  • Operators that update fleets with modern vehicles are likely to perform better than competitors

    Due to the large number and high value of trucks and trailers required by rental firms, capital requirements are a significant factor for the industry. IBISWorld estimates the capital-to-labour of 1:0.37, which means that for every £1.00 operators spend on capital, 37p is spend on wages.This indicates that the industry is heavily reliant on capital, making it highly susceptible to economic conditions. Due to EU requirements for vehicles to be relatively new and to have travelled relatively few miles, vehicles need to be replaced every few years. This means that industry operators spend large amounts on purchasing new trucks. How...purchase to read more.
