The demand for used plant equipment is still growing and is expected to keep increasing throughout the year. Due to the ongoing supply issues, the demand has continued to grow for machinery, also pushing the price up!

Find out more about the used plant equipment available here at International Plant Sales, as well as the continuing demand issues that the construction industry are currently facing.


Despite the acceleration of construction projects in 2021, the amount of new machinery being produced declined and continues to do so. Therefore, directly affecting the used plant equipment currently for sale. The strain on the current market will continue due to the ongoing supply and demand issues.

According to the Q4 2021 European Market Trends report from the Ritchie Bros, prices have risen considerably and continue to do so for the foreseeable future. 

If you’re looking to buy used plant equipment, you would often guarantee to pick up a fantastic deal on machines at auctions and online listings websites such as MachineryZone, Mascus and Auto Trader. However, in recent months, the amount of machines being listed has drastically dropped and the prices have increased.


Telehandlers are used globally within the construction industry for lifting materials and other equipment. They are used to transport large loads, and are commonly found on development sites and distribution centres. Find out more about telehandlers in our recent blog post.

For companies within the UK, Germany, China and India, they are the most affected companies by the current situation.
