The revival of the economy stimulates the growth of the volume of new transactions and the intensification of activity in the leasing industry
The total volume of new transactions of research participants for the past year grew by 39%, and some industry representatives increased their annual turnover several times. Participants in the leasing market associate the growth of the industry last year with the revival in the economy.
It is obvious that public authorities are interested in leasing as one of the most promising and effective financial instruments. At present, state bodies carefully analyze the situation in the industry, study problems and mechanisms for the development of the leasing market.
In the structure of new deals for the first time in a long time, the largest industry was not agriculture – a significant part of the volume of new business in 2016 was leased railway equipment, and in 2017 this segment became the largest in the market for leasing financing.
