Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The Construction Equipment Rental and Leasing industry is estimated to have a low level of concentration, with the four largest firms expected to account for 16.8% of industry revenue in 2016-17. The operators with the largest presence in the industry, Speedy Hire and Ashtead Plant Hire, are only expected to generate 4.9% of total revenue each. The industry also has a very high number of enterprises, with over 4,000 firms competing. The vast majority of operators only run on a small scale and rent equipment to firms operating locally. This is illustrated by the fact that an estimated 71.5% of industry operators employ fewer than five people and just 6.8% of operators employ 20 or more people. This demonstrates the high level of fragmentation present in the industry.
