Solifi – Global Leasing Report 2024


The new Solifi Global Leasing Report 2024 reveals the outlook for the global leasing industry is optimistic, with a rise of 0.5% in new business volumes in 2022 and 70% growth overall in the past decade.

This coveted digital publication details the trends, economic projections and insights into the top 50 leasing markets worldwide. This is the 18th edition that Solifi has partnered with the World Leasing Yearbook to distribute the report, which is available for download free of charge. 

The top 50 countries recorded new business volume of US $1,470bn in 2022, with the United States, China, United Kingdom, Germany and Japan accounting for 72% of world leasing volume, according to the report.

The Global Leasing Report highlights that global economic growth is forecast to decrease to 2.9% in 2024, which is below the historical average of 3.8%. However, the report still predicts that, despite the pandemic, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the cost-of-living crisis, the global economy is gradually recovering, and that the outlook for the global leasing industry is generally optimistic. 

“The Global Leasing Report has been an indispensable guide within the industry for decades, and we are proud to be working with the World Leasing Yearbook once again to produce it,” says David Hamilton, CEO at Solifi. “With a more accurate picture of how the pandemic has impacted the economy, it is reassuring to see that the industry is expecting continued growth despite significant challenges. The research produced in the report provides leasing organisations the insights needed to guide business strategy to drive growth.”
