Driving Factors

Following the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, the construction equipment market grew gradually owing to a resurgence of stalled construction projects and organized additional investments in the construction industry as part of the growth in infrastructure projects. Infrastructure investments, developments to both residential and commercial infrastructures, and an increase in corporate capital spending on a global scale include some factors boosting the development of construction equipment manufacturers.


Furthermore, the increasing popularity of electric construction equipment is expected to create new revenue streams for Original Equipment Manufacturers over the forecast period. These battery-operated tools offer a variety of advantages, such as a lower expense for upkeep, much fewer disturbances from vibration, and improved operator comfort for field technicians. They are currently in the stages of development but are expected to increase in number over the duration of the forecast.


The growing emphasis on construction projects as well as the advancement of digitization, connectivity, and automation in construction and manufacturing applications, has had an enormous influence on the market's expansion. The railways and roadways construction machinery market has grown significantly in the past decade as a result of more extensive development projects implemented by central and regional governments, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, due to the high cost of construction equipment and their upkeep, the demand for renting or leasing construction equipment has grown significantly. Rental service providers supply the equipment, as well as the necessary skilled equipment operators and commuters. Furthermore, rental companies are preparing to capitalize on emerging technologies in order to meet the increasing demand for technologically advanced construction machinery and substitute older fleets combined with modernized or improved machinery fleets.


Restraining Factors

However, the majority of the challenges to the adoption of the construction equipment market during the forecast period are anticipated to be the high initial upfront costs. In addition, the overall absence of qualified and experienced operators is impeding the widespread utilization of construction equipment. Furthermore, the government's strict regulations for mining and construction operations as well as legislation prohibiting machinery from emitting carbon dioxide are expected to slow the expansion of the market for construction equipment.


Market Segmentation

By Equipment Type Insights

The material handling equipment segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

On the basis of equipment type, the global construction equipment market is segmented into earthmoving equipment, material handling equipment, heavy construction vehicles, and others. Among these, the material handling equipment segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 38.7% over the forecast period. . It is attributed to a rise in the demand for crawler cranes used in non-residential construction, particularly in the industrial, manufacturing, and commercial construction industries. Storage, control, and protection of materials, goods, and products in manufacturing, distribution, consumption, and disposal are examples of material handling actions. Cranes are frequently used for such tasks. Cranes, for instance, are utilized for hoisting massive objects such as stones, sculptures, and other heavy materials from locations such as truck beds, grounds, and more. The demand for the material handling equipment segment is expected to be driven by increasing industrial construction operations and the growth of commercial initiatives during the predicted time frame.


By Product Type Insights

The excavators segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over the forecast period.

On the basis of product type, the global construction equipment market is segmented into wheel bulldozers, front loaders, dump trucks, backhoe loaders, graders, crawler dozers, compactors, excavators, forklifts, concrete mixer trucks, and others. Among these, the excavators segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over the forecast period. The digging of the construction site is typically carried out with excavators. Due to the fact that almost all construction sites require digging work, it is a very common piece of equipment. Furthermore, the market share for wheeled loaders is estimated to be the second-largest in the construction equipment market. In the construction, quarry, and crusher segments, this construction equipment is mainly utilized for laden/unladen and bulk material transportation. These are commonly employed in large-scale infrastructure construction projects like highways and roadways, train lines, and the construction of dams, ports, and airports. As a result, its affordable price, lightweight design, and low operating costs are expected to boost the use of wheeled loaders in the construction sector.


By End Users Insights

The construction & infrastructure segment accounted the largest revenue share of more than 55% over the forecast period.

On the basis of end users, the global construction equipment market is segmented into oil & gas, construction & infrastructure, manufacturing, mining, and others. Among these, construction & infrastructure are dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 75% over the forecast period. This segment’s growth is anticipated to be fueled by increasing construction activity around the world. Infrastructure, including residential and commercial ones, as well as roads, rails, and other public works, are constructed using construction equipment. The market's general demand is expected to rise as the popularity of highly technological construction equipment rises.
