The Global Heavy Construction Equipment Market Size was valued at $176.2 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $273.5 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.4% from 2021 to 2030. Heavy construction equipment or machineries are used for heavy operations tasks such as material handling, excavation, lifting and other heavy operations. Commercial, residential and industrial sectors as well as increased public–private partnerships and global economic growth, are driving the heavy construction equipment market. There are many different types of heavy construction equipment in the market; nevertheless, selecting the appropriate construction equipment is critical. When choosing heavy construction equipment, companies consider factors such as the material, quality, project's complexity, and safety.

The heavy construction equipment market is driven by increased private sector investment, real estate sector growth, improving economic situations, and residential and commercial infrastructure set-up in emerging countries. In addition, the expansion of government infrastructure development projects and public–private partnerships for the construction of public infrastructure systems in countries such as the U.S., India and China, has aided market growth. The U.S. government has made significant investments in the construction of roads, railway tracks, airports, and other infrastructure, which necessitates the employment of excavators, loaders, and other heavy equipment. For instance, in March 2021, the U.S. President introduced $2 trillion infrastructure plan, which includes transportation, broadband, electric grid and residential & commercial constructions.


In addition, leading market players are focusing on manufacturing smart, internet-connected, fuel- and energy-efficient construction machinery, resulting in market development potential throughout the projection period. For instance, in March 2021, Doosan Infracore launched super large 100-ton excavator model. It uses smart power control and electronic integrated hydraulic system. It has in-house designed fuel optimization system, to improve fuel efficiency and deliver ideal job performance with loss-free power and speed.

Material Handling Equipment segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR

The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and has now become a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic has halted production of many products in the heavy construction equipment business, owing the lockdowns. Furthermore, the number of COVID-19 cases are expected to reduce in the future as the vaccine for COVID-19 is introduced in the market. This has led to the reopening of heavy construction equipment companies at their full-scale capacities. This is expected to help the market recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection cases begin to decline, equipment & machinery producers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.
