AEA release tractor reg figures for January to June 2021

The Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) has released its tractor registration data for January to June 2021.           

Recently, the AEA reported that UK agricultural tractor registrations in the first half of 2021 were up by more than a quarter, compared with the same period last year.


Looking at the power of machines registered during the year to date, we can see that there was strong growth across most of the power range. Growth was a little slower in the 150-250hp range than for higher and lower-powered machines. The most rapid growth was in the 120-150hp range, where registrations were up by nearly two-thirds, compared with the first half of last year.


Growth was also seen across all regions of the UK, although in the West Midlands and South East/Home Counties the year-on-year rise was less than 10%. The strongest increase was in the East Midlands, where registrations nearly doubled from the same period last year. Northern Ireland also saw an increase of over 60%, while Wales and Scotland recorded growth rates which were slightly lower than the UK average (but above 20%).
