Market Dynamics

In developing countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, malls and office buildings are currently undergoing construction. For instance, Brazil experienced the construction of more than 13 shopping mall in 2021. These shopping centers are multistory and built on several acres of land, which increases the need for large construction tools.

Furthermore, the construction of brand-new, opulent office buildings in several nations and significant cities is a result of the rising industrialization of developing nations. For instance, in 2021, over 17 significant IT parks are currently being constructed in India's major cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore, and Hyderabad.

In addition, heavy construction equipment tends to become damaged or undergo destruction regularly given the demanding tasks performed at construction sites. Heavy construction equipment, like any other vehicle, needs to be timely maintained by going through routine servicing and maintenance to keep it operating properly. In addition, there are labor costs and operational costs, which cover things such as the cost of hiring skilled, experienced drivers and fuel costs for running the equipment. However, equipment rental businesses employ and train their own staff of equipment operators.

Furthermore, some businesses offer to pay the cost of the diesel, which is deducted from the customer's payment. These factors make it easy for customers to hire heavy and expensive equipment with well-trained operators only when needed. This helps to minimize the expense in the form of wages of operators as well as expenses incurred due to their maintenance. Hence such an advantage of construction rental equipment propels the growth of the market.

Moreover, several housing developments are also being built throughout Africa. For instance, in February 2022, six new mega social housing projects are planned for South Africa in the coming few years. In addition, in 2021, Africa's largest 3D-printed affordable housing project started in Kenya. To operate, such infrastructure projects require heavy construction machinery. This equipment is rented and used at these sites, which drives the construction equipment rental industry market  growth. 

However, in developed countries in North America and Europe, there is a saturation of new construction activity due to the already constructed infrastructure, the recent industrial slump, and the high cost of development. As a result, substantial investments in brand-new building projects have declined, which is anticipated to eventually constrain expansion of the construction equipment rental market share for renting heavy construction equipment in developed countries.

Moreover, at new construction sites, large cranes are inexpensive for rent instead of buying, simple to disassemble, and easy to move. In addition, rental firms can now easily follow the locations and operations of their equipment thanks to modern technology like IoT embedded in heavy construction equipment. IoT assists in addressing a lack of experienced labor, increasing task accuracy, guaranteeing on-time delivery within budget, and addressing equipment safety concerns. Thus, it is anticipated that throughout the projection period, the introduction of new internet-connected equipment will promote market growth for the rental of heavy construction equipment.

Furthermore, several commodities, including food items, oil, and gas, saw a surge in price due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Due to supply chain interruptions, there are now more expensive shipping costs, fewer available containers, and less warehouse space. Since there have been delays in shipments and congestion, certain ports have been closed, and orders are being retracted, which influences industry and consumers globally. The decline in investor confidence has also increased stock market volatility. Economic instability has risen due to the strained commercial ties between Russia, Ukraine, and their different trading partners. Hence, all such factors have reduced export possibilities.

Construction Equipment Rental Market by Application

By Product:

The construction equipment rental market is divided into backhoes & excavators, loaders, crawler dozers, cranes, forklift, and others. Backhoes & excavator are used for digging, material handling, demolition, mining, drilling shafts, and snow removal. This equipment is mainly used in mines, forestry, constructions for demolition, and material handling. In addition, Loader is majorly used for earthmoving operations, which include loading and moving materials such as dirt, demolition, recycled material, raw material, and sand.

Furthermore, Crawler dozers are used at construction sites to move excavated soil, sand, and rocks. High rise buildings need strong footing underneath and hence need deeper excavation while building the base pillars. Moreover, Cranes are commonly equipped with a hoist, wire, ropes, chains, and sheaves. In addition, Forklift, also known as fork truck or lifting truck, is used in warehouse and distribution centers for lifting and moving raw materials and goods. Other segments include lift trucks, compactors and concrete pumps & mixers that are used on construction sites. The loaders segment is expected to be the largest revenue contributor during the forecast period, and the others segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR share in the product segment in the construction equipment rental market during the forecast period.

Analyst Review

The rise in construction & mining activities in developing countries propels the growth of the construction equipment market. Moreover, decline in expenses such as maintenance cost of the equipment and high labor cost such as wages for skilled labors and operational costs at the time of actual working on the site have led end users to opt for rental equipment. Furthermore, the ownership of this heavy equipment can incur high initial investment, which is not affordable for all end users. In addition, it is inconvenient to hire a full-time skilled operator of this equipment as the wages might be higher.

However, the construction market has saturated in several developed nations and has affected the construction equipment rental market. On the contrary, integration of IOT in the equipment prevents accidents in the workplace and aids in downtime reduction, thereby boosting the growth of the construction equipment rental market during the forecast period. Furthermore, rapid urbanization and industrialization of emerging countries and use of construction equipment is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the construction equipment rental industry market.
