Renting has always been an economical option for equipment users when they need a machine in the short term to get a job done.  With renting, the customer benefits by only paying for as long as they need the equipment.

However, the recent recession made many equipment owners cautious about taking on debt and upgrading or expanding their fleet. For them, the rental option has become increasingly popular.

Over the last five years, the economic recession and its impact on the US construction markets particularly hurt demand for rental equipment. IBISWorld estimates revenue decreased at an average annual rate of 2.5% to $24.9 billion over the five years to 2012.

However, the industry has experienced positive revenue growth starting in 2011, as firms benefited from an improved business environment in which developers and business owners opted for renting instead of buying equipment as a way to free up capital for other needs. And as access to capital remains challenging for many, builders and developers often turn to rental firms for their equipment needs.

Over the next five years, stronger demand will boost industry performance and profitability.
