Sales of tractors increased by 106%. Top models of September
Experts of the Institute of Auto Market Research analyzed the statistics of vehicle registrations in Ukraine and determined the TOP models of September in three segments of truck tractors: import of used vehicles, domestic resale and purchase of new ones.
Dynamics of the truck tractor market
In September 2022, Ukrainians purchased 4,400 new and used truck tractors. This is 48.8% more than in the same period of last year 2021 and 17.5% more than in August 2022. Such an indicator is a record not only for the last 12 months, but also for many years of observing the car market of Ukraine.
Due to the change in logistics routes and the temporary limitation of the work of sea ports, the demand for road transportation has increased significantly. Ukrainian logistics companies are actively replenishing their fleet, because there is not enough rolling stock.
The majority (55.7%) of all tractors were brought used from abroad (2.4 thousand transactions), another 40.2% were bought on the domestic market (1.8 thousand units). Only 4.1% of truck tractors were purchased new (179 units).
The average age of tractors on the domestic market was 14.7 years (this indicator increased for the second month in a row), and imported from abroad with mileage was 8.5 years (the indicator decreased for the sixth month in a row). That is, the import of used truck tractors "rejuvenates" this segment of the market.
This is due to the absence of a prohibitive excise tax on the import of used tractors. That is why the import of truck tractors from abroad is the only segment of imports that showed growth in September (by 106% compared to September 2021).
