Exporting chains to Europe
The chains market in Europe is relatively stable although there is a gradual shift towards more cost effective, low maintenance and energy efficient chains. European imports of chains are stable around €1.1 billion annually, of which about 20 22% supplied by exporters from Developing Countries. Germany and the United Kingdom are Europe’s main chain importers, while also France, Italy and the Netherlands can be interesting focus countries. Developing Country exporters that want to target the European market can either partner/subcontract with European producers or sell their products to European importers.
