COVID-19 Unfavourably Impacted Tractor Registrations in the First Half of 2020!

According to figures from national authorities 89,105 tractors were registered in Europe in the first six months of 2020. Of the registered tractors, 23,556 units were 37 kW (50 hp) and below, 65,549 were 38 kW and above. It is estimated that 68,831 of these vehicles are agricultural tractors, while the remainders are ATVs, telescopic handlers, and other equipment.

In sober fact, the year started at the same levels as 2019 for January and February 2020, but it fell significantly after the start of the pandemic in Europe, March (-7.11% compared to 2019), April (-25.81%), May (-22.72%) and in June (-12.03%). Therefore tractor registrations decreased by 12.08% compared to 2019 in the first period of the year.  The epidemic significantly affected the 2nd quarter of the year (-19.96% compared to 2019), which is traditionally known as a high season for the market.

Comparing trends by power category, only the number of registrations in the 23 - 37 kW group increased compared to 2019 in the first six months of 2020. Broadly, more than half of the registered tractors are below 75 kW and less than a quarter above 110 kW. During such a dramatic outbreak, the industry demanded some flexibility from the authorities for the installation of transition engines (engines nonconform to Stage V standards) that were produced before the crisis and remained in stock. Based on this request, the legislation of the transition engines was amended for non-road mobile machinery  (NRMM) including tractors in power groups <56kW and ≥130kW, extending the deadlines for the market (31 December 2020) and production licenses (30 June 2020) by 12 months. Tractors equipped with transition engines between 56kW and 130kW were not affected by this change. According to figures from national authorities, registrations for machines from 56 to 129 kW fell 16.03% in the first 6 months of 2020, while a record 23.55% decline in the second quarter. Due to this downward trend, industry representatives call for the European Commission to keep close tabs on the industry regarding the impacts of COVID-19, timely assess the impact on the upcoming deadlines of machines to be equipped with transition engines between 56kW and 130kW, and undertake new legal actions in line with the developments.

Due to this downward trend, industry representatives call for the European Commission to keep close tabs on the industry regarding the impacts of COVID-19, timely assess the impact on the upcoming deadlines of machines to be equipped with transition engines between 56kW and 130kW, and undertake new legal actions in line with the developments. According to the data, Germany and France remain the two largest tractor markets in Europe. However, while in Germany, all tractor registrations decreased by only 2.75% compared to the first quarter of 2019. Regional registrations in France (-18.81%), Italy (-17.98%), the United Kingdom (-25.21%), and Spain (-25.62%) have dropped dramatically.
