Agricultural and forestry technology from Austria enjoys worldwide demand

Agricultural, Timber and Forestry Industry: Technology & Equipment, Austria Export No. 142 © ADVANTAGEAUSTRIA.ORG


5. August 2010

Austrian agricultural and forestry technology has an outstanding worldwide reputation and is at the top of the industry in many areas. In some segments Austrian producers are even global market leaders.

Agricultural and forestry technology is a key export driver for the Austrian economy. As foreign markets have highly varied requirements and diverse demand for innovative technologies, the industry operates in an extremely challenging environment.

The success of Austrian companies in supplying modern agricultural and forestry technology lies in in-depth market knowledge and accommodating the needs of their partners. The broad range of Austrian exports in this field include:

  • Sowing machinery
  • Harvesting machinery
  • Fertilising machinery
  • Stall systems
  • Biogas plants
  • Silos and animal feed handling systems
  • Weather stations
  • Timber-extraction equipment
  • Forest harvesting machinery

The export triumphs go far beyond Europe's borders. Southern and Central Asia are dynamic export markets for forestry technology, as are Eastern Europe, Russia, Turkey and the Middle East. Austrian producers benefit from the traditionally strong forestry technology clusters in Central Europe by cooperating with producers from Germany, Northern Italy and the Czech Republic.
