SaMoTer to be held as Italian construction industry on the up reflected by Innovation awards
The Italian construction machinery exhibition SaMoTer will take place at the Verona Exhibition Centre from 21 to 25 March, 2020. Timing could not be better, as things are looking up for the Italian construction industry which is finally picking up after some difficult years.
Construction machinery exports grew by 1.9% to €2.24B in the first nine months of 2019 according to an international trade report that comprised of an analysis of Istat data by the SaMoTer- Prometeia Outlook that monitors Italy's import/export flows in the construction equipment sector. The survey indicates that exports in the period January-September 2019 saw the industry grow from €2.19B when compared to the same period in 2018. This increase was particularly attributed to an increase in the export of concrete machinery, which posted an increase of +15.8% (€246.63M) and aggregate preparation machinery, with exports of €422.66M (+9.9%).
Research predicts that in 2020/2021 these figures will increase, albeit at a slower pace than in 2019. Overall investment in Italy in 2018 was €139B and current forecasts for 2019 suggest a further increase of 3.3%, worth around about €4.5B. These figures are also likely to improve over the next two years, with expected growth of €2.5B in 2020 (+1.8%) and €2.4B in 2021 (+1.7%). These updated estimates by the SaMoTer-Prometeia Outlook were published in Building & Construction sector Monitor for December 2019.
SaMoTer Innovation Awards
Further reflecting the growth in the Italian construction industry, in January this year a number of exhibitors at the coming SaMoTer show attended the pre-SaMoTer press meeting. At a gala dinner, the winners of the 23rd SaMoTer Innovation Awards were announced. The winners included Simex which won in the attachments category with its TFC400; Wacker Neuson in the mini excavator category with EZ17e; Kobelco for its SK75SR-7 midi excavators and Hidromek for its HMK230LC-H4 construction excavators. Other winners included Bobcat, Hyundai and Liebherr. Trevi Benne received special recognition for its outstanding performance in developing hydraulic attachments for demolition and recycling, in particular the new back-dump excavator bucket.
This all means that expectations are high for the upcoming event in Verona and PDi Magazine will be there to report about the show. Attached you will find a selected list of exhibitors at SaMoTer related to the industries PDi covers.
