Sales of new agricultural machinery during 2022, in Spain

As is the tradition every year, we show the data of the sales of new machinery in Spain during 2022, these data are extracted from the information published by the Ministry of Agriculture (the information is published monthly, you can see this information from here). It is a summary of the most interesting data in our opinion. Overall, the figures are generally worse than in 2021, which we consider to be in line with the general trend of the average of the last few years.

The number of new tractors sold has decreased to 10,318 (11,672 units in 2021). A figure that is in line with the 10,000 new tractors sold annually which has been the benchmark figure for more than 10 years. Therefore, the sale of new tractors is on a steady path.

New tractor sales by brand continue to be led by John Deere (2,141 units in 2022, 2,351 units in 2021 and 2,429 units in 2020) and New Holland (1,522 units in 2022, 1,736 units in 2021 and 1,403 units in 2020). The news is that this year John Deere is again the leader in sales by commercial group. We would like to highlight the rise of Fendt, which is in third place with 699 units sold. Below you can see sales by brand on the chart:   

On the other hand, another interesting fact is the best-selling brand in terms of average power where Fendt continues to lead the market for another year with 187 hp/tractor (187 hp/tractor in 2020 and 188 hp/tractor in 2020). More information can be found in the following tables (data source Más que máquinas agrícolas blog):   

Some more interesting facts about the sale of new tractors: 

  • The Ministry has estimated the average sales price of a new tractor at €77,698 (€61,456 in 2021 and €58,830 in 2020): 
  • The average horse price continues to rise and is already at 646 €/HP (592 €/ HP in 2021 and 505 €/ HP in 2020). 
  • The average power of a new tractor sold in Spain is around 120  HP   (119 HP in 2021 and 117 HP in 2020). The average power of the total Spanish fleet is 70 HP. 

As for sales of new agricultural machinery in 2022, we would like to show a chart where you can see monthly sales. You have data about tractors, trailers, tillage machinery, seed drills, mowers or harvesting machinery, etc. We would like to mention that a total amount of 31,870 new machines were sold in 2022 (35,633 units in 2021 and 32,204 units in 2020). This is a significant drop compared to previous years. 

We highlight the following data on new sales of agricultural machinery: 

  • Sales of new trailers:  2,951 units, 3,818 units in 2021 and 3,834 units in 2020. 
  • Regarding trailed or mounted machinery: 
    • Soil tillage machinery: 2,926 units, 3,122 units in 2021and 2,914 units in 2020. 
    • Seed drills machinery: 1,002 units, 1,011units in 2021 and 932 units in 2020. 
    • Crop protection machinery: 6,938 units, 7,650 units in 2021 and 6,234 units in 2020. 
    • Spreaders and fertilization machinery: 1,976 units, 2,596 units in 2021 and 2,254 units in 2020. 
    • Harvesters machinery: 1,819 units, 2,062 units in 2021 and 2,174 units in 2020. 


Apart from that, we have to give special mention to the new combine harvesters sold in Spain which in 2022 was 191 units compared to 2021 in 2021and 279 units in 2021. This represents a very significant drop. This year the first place goes to New Holland with 68 units (102 units in 2021). This has never happened before because Claas has been the leader year after year. This sector is completely monopolised by New Holland (68 units), Claas (54 units) and John Deere (49 units). The other manufacturers' sales are practically symbolic (around 13% of sales). 

We want to give a special mention to the sales of self-propelled grape harvesters, which this year have increased compared to previous years with 137 new units sold (135 units in 2021 and 111 units in 2020). New Holland leads the market again, even more strongly for another year with 71% of sales. We can conclude that the market has been stable for several years with around 100 new units sold. We think that this is a good amount, so we think the wine and olive sectors are sectors with great potential.
