Top 10 Forklift Manufacturers of 2017 in the world


Here is the rankings for the top ten forklift manufacturers of 2017:

  1. Toyota. Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO) remains at the number one spot for 2017. With a revenue of $8.563 billion from just their material handling/forklift market alone, Toyota’s total unit sales have increased from the fiscal year 2015-2016.
  2. KION Group. Coming in at number two, the Kion Group grew 4% to $5.879 billion and early this year launched five new models of its Linde and Baoli brands. Kion also owns the brands STILL, Fenwick, OM STILL, and Voltas.
  3. Mitsubishi Nickiyu. Not normally a high ranker, Mitsubishi has climbed to third place after acquiring UniCarriers early this year. They will be officially integrated with UniCarriers this October, and their combined revenues have catapulted Mitsubishi’s total forklift sales.
  4. Jungheinrich. Despite a strong performance in 2016, Jungheinrich moves to fourth place due to the successful merge of Mitsubishi and UniCarriers. This past year the forklift company grew nearly 9% in the United States and 12% in the European market, expanding their global sales and service network to more than 36 countries.
  5. Crown Equipment. Finishing just shy of $3 billion in revenues, Crown Equipment takes fifth place after growing more than 10% from 2016.
  6. Hyster-Yale Materials Handling. The parent company of the Hyster and Yale forklift brands, Hyster-Yale Materials Handling experienced consolidated revenues of $2.57 billion this year, which is about even from the previous fiscal year.
  7. Anhui Forklift. Following the launch of a new brand of forklifts, CHL in 2016, Anhui Forklift takes seventh place with a growth of 2.3% in revenues and 16% of total sales from 2016.
  8. Doosan. Usually farther down this list, Doosan has jumped to eighth on our list after growing more than 10% from the previous year.
  9. Hangcha Group. Almost hitting 10% in growth, Hangcha Group sold nearly 83,000 units of various forklift classes in 2016, achieving more than a 23% increase in total sales.
  10. Clark Material Handling. Taking tenth place, Clark Material Handling held flat this year despite experiencing their 100th anniversary and an overall solid year in 2016. With full production in place for six models, Clark is expanding their line further with several new product releases in 2017.
