By Murray Pollok30 March 2021
French rental and distributors association DLR has reported a 12.5% decline in the French equipment rental market last year, largely as a result of the pandemic. The reduction in rental market revenues to €4.19 billion comes after four years of strong rental growth.
DLR’s annual market report also highlights a 4.7% reduction in the rental workforce in France over the year, with 27,500 staff now working in the sector, slightly higher than in 2018.
