Report Highlights

The construction equipment and machinery market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.16% during the forecast period. The market accounted for more than USD 142 billion in the year 2015. Increased focus on infrastructure and increasing automation of the construction and manufacturing processes has had a great impact on the development of the market. Concrete and road construction equipment includes batching plants, pumps, and concrete mixers. An escalating demand for machines that are cost effective, along with regulatory pressures for lower emissions, are pressurizing construction-equipment manufacturers to opt for electric and hybrid vehicles over traditional hydraulic and mechanical ones. Volvo has developed the L220F Hybrid Wheel Loader that is claimed to offer more power, better performance, and the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up to 10-12%, compared with current versions of wheel loaders. It would not only reduce fuel costs but also deliver significant environmental benefits — such as lesser CO2 emissions.

The road construction equipment market has witnessed significant growth in the recent past, mainly owing to the increased road development programs undertaken by the central and state governments, especially in the Asia-Pacific countries. Construction machinery is primarily used in industries, residential structures, bridges and power plants. Other applications include power projects and irrigation systems. Growing demand from the mining industry, growing number of upcoming highway construction projects and advanced vehicles equipped with emission control systems are some of the factors anticipated to drive the construction equipment market over the forecast period.

Crawler excavators are one of the most demanded heavy construction equipment (heavy duty excavators) weighing 60,000 to 80,000 pounds and are used across a wide range of applications, including industries, especially heavy infrastructure projects, underground utilities, road construction, pipeline, commercial site preparation and demolition purposes. Increasing capacity augmentation in the cement industry is expected to propel the excavator market growth. Heavy-duty excavators are used to break out the refractories of rotary kilns used in the cement industry.
