Investment in Equipment to Reach New High in 2015

Investment in new equipment is expected to hit an all-time high in 2015, according to a recent news release by the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association.  Equipment purchasing activity has been steadily improving over the past twenty-four months with businesses acquiring equipment to gain both efficiencies and growth.  Business managers are taking advantage of historically low interest rates and lenders are anxious to lend money to companies of all sizes.

Many businesses are considering accelerating their equipment acquisitions in the first half of 2015 in anticipation of a possible increase in interest rates by the Federal Reserve later in the year.  Although no one can predict when rates may rise, the Fed has repeatedly indicated a willingness to take action if unemployment rates continue to fall and GDP shows further improvement.  No matter when short term rates begin to increase, now is an excellent time to be buying capital equipment. Equipment prices remain reasonably low and borrowing costs are at near historically low levels. Businesses are thinking and acting long term and making moves to lock in their equipment financing now, rather than waiting and missing out on the current buying opportunities.
