Chinook Industry Spotlight: Rental Equipment Q2 2020

  • The U.S. heavy equipment rental market was valued at $52 billion in 2022, with the top 100 companies representing 32% of total industry revenues.
  • The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2% over the next five years due to increasing infrastructure development, fueled by the preference for renting over ownership in industries like construction and logistics.
  • The demand for general equipment rentals continues to outpace new purchases due to the backlog of new equipment orders bolstered by steady rental prices.
  • The level of M&A involving private equity firms has increased due to their success in executing a buy-and-build strategy. However, major players like United Rentals and Ashtead Group remain active in this space, seeking to expand their fleets and geographic coverage through strategic acquisitions.
