Following a disappointing dip in October, UK registrations of new tractors (+50hp) recovered a little bit of lost ground in November. According to the latest figures released by the AEA, new tractor sales totalled 638 units compared with 522 units in the same month last year, representing a year-on-year increase of just over 22%.
However, the sales recorded in November were down on the previous month by 33 units, while the year-to-date (January to November inclusive) figures are still around 20% below the numbers recorded for the same eleven-month period in 2019. The overall trend for this year therefore remains on a stubbornly downward trajectory – and with just one month’s statistics to come in, it’s safe to say that the new tractor market for the UK is set to contract significantly compared with 2019.
