Among the major agricultural mechanics exhibitions, 44th Eima International is the one that every year offers the widest and most articulated choice of machinery and equipment.
At the Bologna exhibition center from 19 to 23 October, vehicles for working the soil, for crop treatments, for the collection and transport of products, for irrigation and for livestock farming, located in sectors II, IV will be on display. , V, VI, VII, X and XI.
As explained in a press release by FederUnacoma, the manufacturers’ federation that organizes the Exposition, this 44th Eima takes place at a particularly dynamic moment for the Italian industry in the sector, which records sales increases both in Italy and abroad.
The Barometer survey, carried out by the federation, shows how, with reference to agricultural machinery, 83% of companies recorded an increase in turnover compared to the previous year in the first six months of 2021, compared to a modest 6% of companies which instead mark a drop in turnover.
Among the profitable companies, 54% recorded increases of more than 20%. The positive trend should also be confirmed in the second half of the year, albeit with less pronounced indices. In fact, the Barometer indicates that 67% of the construction industries foresee increases in turnover and 27% a stable trend, data that suggest a clearly positive balance at the end of 2021.
On this topic, Lorenzo Selvatici, president of Assomao, who represents the manufacturers of agricultural machinery within FederUnacoma, said: “Our sector is extremely heterogeneous and made up of hundreds of small and medium-sized enterprises. Hyper-specialized each in its own area and the 44th Eima is the fair that, more than any other in the world, gives the necessary visibility to all these realities by offering them a great business opportunity during the days of the exhibition. On the other hand, it offers the visitor a one-of-a-kind completeness of visit, for those interested in implements for specialized agriculture “.
The replacement of machinery and equipment currently in use on farms with new generation vehicles is a necessary process. In fact, the economic sustainability and environmental compatibility of processing have become a fundamental element in agricultural activity.
The machines exhibited at the 44th Eima International feature electronic function control systems, monitoring sensors, ISOBUS technologies to optimize the relationship between tractor and mounted or towed equipment. Technologies capable of making the use of machines increasingly refined and respectful of the environment.
