THE DEMAND FOR LORRIES

DIE NACHFRAGE NACH LASTKRAFTWAGEN

INDUSTRY AND THE PRODUCTIVE SECTOR HAVE, OVER THE LAST TWENTY YEARS, MADE AN INCREASING CONTRIBUTION TO THE RISE IN THE NUMBER OF LORRIES. THE PROPORTION HAS RISEN IN THE PERIOD CONSIDERED FROM 36% TO 46.5%. THE STRUCTURE OF THE LORRY FLEET HAS TENDED ON THE ONE HAND TOWARDS LIGHT TRANSPORTERS AND ON THE OTHER HAND TOWARDS HEAVY VEHICLES. THE SHARP FLUCTUATIONS IN NEW REGISTRATIONS ARISE FROM PROFIT DEVELOPMENT AND A VARIETY OF DEPRECIATION POSSIBILITIES, WHILST PRODUCTION AND SALES FIGURES ARE OF LESS INFLUENCE. THE LIMITED HOME MARKET IN COMPARISON TO FOREIGN PRODUCERS, REDUCES THE MARKET PROPORTION OF THE HOME VEHICLE INDUSTRY IN THE BOOM PERIODS.
