Based on the review conducted by the British Industrial Truck Association for the fourth quarter of 2001, 26,060 powered fork lift trucks were ordered in Great Britain. Although this represents a decline in the market of almost five percent, the market remains at a high level. The market has now stood at more than 25,000 units for four consecutive years. This compared to 13,530 units during 1991, the worst year of the last severe market downturn. Although it is difficult to be absolutely certain about the level of fork lift demand in the various economic regions, the slowdown appears to be spread across all regions, with the exceptions of the East Midlands and Scotland where some growth has been noted. The prognosis for 2002 depends on the observer's interpretation of the market figures for the latter part of 2001.
