Finance technology company White Clarke Group celebrates the release of the Global Leasing Report 2020 and has made it available as a free download.

By Brendan Gleeson, Group CEO of White Clarke Group

The 41st Global Leasing Report, released by White Clarke Group in association with the World Leasing Yearbook, is the definitive guide to the world’s top 50 leasing markets. The report provides a leading analysis of country trading environments and trends in auto and equipment finance.

Highlights show that the global leasing industry has grown by 131% in the past nine years— a remarkable achievement for Asia, North America and Europe in particular, given the struggles of the economic recession of the early 2010s.

The report goes on to explain that while these three regions make up 95% of the world’s total volume, other regions, such as Africa, have conversely shown a steady decline in growth (when expressed in US$).  The USA and China, the two countries with the largest impact overall on the Global Leasing Report ranking, have shown an incredible annual volume of $US682.82bn, which outstrips that of all the other measured countries combined.

The Global Leasing Report provides an invaluable insight into how the leasing market continues to demonstrate flexibility and innovation in the face of economic challenges and new technologies.
