Construction & Industrial Equipment Rental


The American Rental Association (ARA) forecasts five-year growth in the U.S. equipment rental industry to continue, with projected total revenue of $59.6 billion in 2021. Additionally, the ARA’s Rental Penetration Index showed a larger share of U.S. construction equipment owned by rental companies, with more than half of assets held by rental companies. Continued strength in the economy and construction market will likely drive continued growth and M&A activity.

Industry Trends:

  • Current revenue growth rate exceeds the average of the last 3 years, indicating that market momentum is increasing
  • Current gross profit margin exceeds the average of the last 3 years gross profit margin, indicating supplier pricing power
  • Current EBITDA margin is less than the average of the last 3 years EBITDA margins, which may signal further consolidation
