Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Marco Amasanti, a leading analyst in the B2B sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

The fleet services market continued to expand over 2017, but the rate of growth narrowed somewhat as the industry navigated uncertainty in the business climate tied to Brexit. New vehicle registrations fell, though this was more symptomatic of pressure on the automotive industry, with fleet vehicles rising as a proportion of total new sales. Accordingly, new contracts and renewals were somewhat subdued. However, the surge in alternatively fuelled vehicles continued over the past year, aided by uncertainty around government policy on diesel vehicles." Marco Amasanti
