The top 10 equipment acquisition trends for 2022 have been revealed by the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association. Real private investment by U.S. businesses in equipment and software is forecast to be almost $2 trillion in 2022, with a substantial amount of that financed, so these trends impact a significant portion of the U.S. economy.
“The pandemic is the underlying theme throughout the trends this year as equipment acquisition continues to drive supply chains across all U.S. manufacturing and service sectors. Nearly eight in 10 U.S. businesses use equipment leasing and financing to acquire the productive assets they need to operate and grow. We are pleased to provide the Top 10 Equipment Acquisition Trends to help businesses make their strategic equipment acquisition plans, especially since there are significant opportunities for businesses to benefit from expected economic growth this year.” - ELFA President and CEO Ralph Petta
