IPAF rental markets reports now free to members
By Leila Steed13 May 2022
IPAF has made its rental markets reports free of charge for selected members.
The organisation made the announcement at this year’s Vertikal Days event in the UK. Its rental, manufacturer, dealer/distributor and supplier members will be eligible to claim a free version of the federation’s Global Powered Access Rental Market Report, when the 2022 edition is published in June.
Described as “a significant addition to the growing package of IPAF membership benefits”, the annually published report looks at the size, value and growth of the global MEWP rental market, and provides an analysis of market drives and trends.
Trends examined by the report include rental and utilisation rates, fleet renewal and other indicators in key European markets, North America, China and the Middle East.
Peter Douglas, CEO & Managing Director of IPAF, said, “Not only will members now qualify for a free version of the report but also, having listened to feedback from members and the wider industry, we are reverting the publication date to June, following a decision to postpone it in each of the past two years owing to the challenges of gathering data during the pandemic.
“As our industry looks to recover, and as part of IPAF’s ongoing commitment to supporting our members during economically volatile times, we have now decided that our rental, manufacturer, dealer/distributor and supplier members will be eligible to claim a version of the relevant market report free of charge.”
Douglas added, “We believe that companies – whether they are already members or considering joining the federation – will instantly recognise the value in this significant additional benefit of IPAF membership.
“For those not already familiar with report, I urge you to view a copy from previous years on the IPAF website or join the special preview webinar to coincide with the release of this year’s report on 8 June.”
From now on IPAF’s full rental markets report, and its regional versions, will be published in a digital format only, as part of its sustainability drive.
While the report will be available for non-eligible companies to purchase, qualifying member companies wanting to obtain a free copy of the report can find out more by visiting: www.ipaf.org/reports
