The global construction equipment market size was valued at $195.8 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $313.9 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2022 to 2031. Construction equipment are specially designed machinery used to perform or assist in construction operations. Typically, these machines include Wheel Bulldozers, Front Loaders, Dump Trucks, Backhoe loader, Grader, Crawler Dozers, Compactors, Excavators, Forklifts, Concrete Mixer Truck, and Others. These equipment are used for different functions such as drilling, hauling, excavating, paving, grading, lifting, and others. The global construction equipment market covers different industries such as construction & infrastructure, manufacturing, and oil & gas.
The construction equipment market was severely hampered during the lockdown period owning to the outbreak of COVID-19. The construction and infrastructure segment were most affected. However, the market recovered by the end of 2021.
Construction sector has been witnessing a rapid rise with increasing global population, and urbanization, which is positively affecting the construction equipment market. However, after the slowdown in construction activities led by COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the construction sector is expected to witness recovery and growth in the coming years. Moreover, owing to rapid urbanization, major cities across the world are getting crowded and resources are being overused. Simultaneously, real estate is also getting excessively expensive. By 2040, the global population is estimated to grow approximately by two billion with the urban population growing by over 40%. Thus, to resolve this issue, various countries such as Egypt, India, Indonesia, and others are building cities to reaccommodate the population. For instance, Egypt is building New Administrative Capital at a cost of about $40 billion. In addition, rise in focus on public-private partnerships (PPP) is also positively affecting the construction equipment market growth. A public-private partnership as the name suggests is a partnership or some kind of joint venture between a private company or entity and a government entity. Typically, these partnerships are meant for the construction of public infrastructure systems, in which a private company handles a project and lends technical & operational expertise, and sometimes financial support for the government projects. The growth in public-private partnerships in different countries such as India, Africa, and China are expected to fuel the growth of the construction equipment end-user segment. Further, the rise in urbanization across the world has also increased the demand to build infrastructure such as residential and transportation. For instance, the government of U.S., has allocated $110 billion under its Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for the repair of roads and bridges. In addition, the country has also allocated $66 billion to modernize its Northeast Rail Corridor, along with other related railway developments. However, factors such as strict government regulations for construction and mining operations and regulations against carbon emissions from machinery are anticipated to restrain the construction equipment market growth.
Furthermore, technological innovations and other desirable improvements in construction equipment are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for players that operate in the construction equipment market. For instance, in April 2022, Doosan Corporation, a major player in the construction equipment market launched Doosan-7 Series mini excavators in the U.S., and Canada. The new equipment come with various improved features, along with companies proprietary DoosanCONNECT Telematics system. This system allows users to remotely monitor and maintain their machines. Moreover, automation is also being widely adopted in the construction industry, as automated vehicles and machinery reduce the operation cost. In addition, automated vehicles can work in places where it may be harmful to the health of an operator. Thus, companies such as Doosan, Hitachi, Sandvik, and others offer a wide range of automated construction equipment. In February 2022, Caterpillars announced reaching the milestone sales of its more than 500 autonomous trucks worldwide. Such technologies are likely to improve the operations of construction equipment, thereby creating opportunities for an upsurge in the construction equipment market during the forecast period.
The demand for construction equipment decreased in the year 2020, owing to low demand from different industries due to lockdowns imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic led to the shut-down of production of various products for the construction equipment market, mainly owing to prolonged lockdowns in major global countries. This hampered the growth of the construction equipment market significantly during the pandemic. The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which were badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for equipment and machinery. However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced. This has led to the full-fledged reopening of construction equipment manufacturing companies, and their end-user sectors as well, at their full-scale capacities. Furthermore, it has been more than two years since the outbreak of this pandemic, and many companies have already shown notable signs of recovery. Contrarily, the increasing number of COVID-19 infection cases in China has brought negative sentiments in the market, which may have a negative impact on the construction equipment market for a short duration. Thus, equipment and machinery manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19 infection cases start to decrease.
