WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA), which represents the $1 trillion equipment finance sector, today revealed its Top 10 Equipment Acquisition Trends for 2023. Real private investment by U.S. businesses in equipment and software is forecast to be more than $2 trillion in 2023, with a substantial amount of that investment activity financed, so these trends impact a significant portion of the U.S. economy.

Nearly eight in 10 of U.S. businesses currently use equipment leasing and financing to acquire the productive assets they need to operate and grow. We are pleased to provide the Top 10 Equipment Acquisition Trends to help businesses make their strategic equipment acquisition plans.”
