Toyota has retained its position as the world's largest supplier of fork lift trucks, according to the latest rankings published by influential German magazine dhf-intralogistik.
Combined global sales of its brands - Toyota, Raymond, CESAB and BT - accounted for 20.72% in 2013/14 (up from 18.53%) of the world market in turnover, according to the calculations of dhf-intralogistik. The Kion Group - with brands including Linde, Still, OM, Fenwick, Voltas and Baoli - remained in a solid second place with 16.39%, albeit slipping back slightly from the previous year (17.88%).
These two were once again well clear of Jungheinrich in third with 8.35% of the market, up from 7.62% in 2012/13.
Completing the top five global manufacturers were Nacco - its Yale and Hyster brands are distributed in the UK by Briggs Equipment - and another US-owned manufacturer Crown Equipment, each of them holding the same positions as in 2012/13 with 7.05% and 6.35% market share respectively.
The only change to the top 10 from a year ago is that Mitsubishi leap-frogged over UniCarriers (Nissan, Atlet and TCM) to move into seventh place.
