bauma CTT RUSSIA 2018 – Positive Outlook for Russia's Most Important Construction Equipment and Construction Engineering Trade Fair

  • Russian construction machinery market back on growth path
  • Trade fair now with demo area
  • Government support confirmed for the trade fair

The bauma CTT RUSSIA 2018 trade fair in the Russian capital Moscow is one of the most important platforms for the international construction machinery and construction engineering industry this year. The focus will be on the market of the host nation Russia at the trade fair, which will take place from June 5 to 8, 2018.
Construction machinery sales increased 45 percent in 2017
The latest economic signals from the world’s largest country in terms of area are positive. For example, the Association of European Businesses (AEB) reported in February 2018 that 45% more construction machinery was sold in the Russian Federation last year than in 2016. The AEB is an association of European companies with branches in Russia. Despite this pleasing return to growth, German construction machinery manufacturers, forexample, are not yet back where they once were, according to the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), in terms of sales in the once booming Russian market. “However, we are confident that the market will continue to pick up and that the trade fair, which we have been supporting for years, will provide additional good business impulses,” Franz-Josef Paus said optimistically, Chairman of the VDMA Association of Construction Machinery andBuilding Materials Equipment Manufacturers. According to observations of the VDMA, crawler excavators and backhoe loaders are currently especially in great demand, among other things.
