Hilco ME Recovery Trends Q4 2012

Current Used Equipment Market
  • Most stable used equipment market since 2007.
  • Construction - Values projected to hold steady thru 2013.
  • Metals Gear Manufacturing Equipment - Softening due to lack of demand and changes in wind turbine space.
  • Metals CNC Equipment - Continues to be very desirable, particularly 2005 - 2012 machines.
  • Mining - Used surface mining equipment values are down due to the slump in the coal industry.
  • Packaging - Packaging and fill equipment strong. Vibrant North American, South American and Carribean Market.
  • Pulp & Paper - Market for used equipment beginning to show signs of improvement but over capacity still an issue. Late model lumber equipment finding buyers, older assets more difficult to find buyers.
  • EU - Problems in the European Union have caused a shift from manufacturers purchasing new equipment to purchasing used.
Over 40 upcoming machinery & equipment sales scheduled for Q1 2013
