LECTURA 2020 infographics


The last year has been undoubtedly unforgettable. The whole world experienced a situation that has never historically been recorded before. The pandemic caused a global lockdown and government restrictions that more or less lasted the whole year and limited various fields of business throughout the world. The heavy machinery industry was not an exception.

On the other hand, the travel bans, event cancelations and gathering restrictions contributed to a swift development of digital tools and solutions. Many companies and users were forced to transfer their businesses at least partially online. We experienced a rapid traffic growth on both online portals, LECTURA Specs and LECTURA Press. Millions of professionals visited our ultimate buyers guide in order to research construction, agricultural, material handling, transportation, and other heavy machinery equipment. More precisely, a professional user sources data from LECTURA every 3.5 seconds!

We also introduced new digital services in 2020 such as a bilingual construction e-magazine DigiMessenger or a survey service providing complex reports consisting of opinions of our professional visitors. Please find below an overview of statistics from the LECTURA portals in 2020:

Sessions by device:
