Latin America Heavy Construction Equipment Market:
Latin America Heavy Construction Equipment Market size was valued at $4,310 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $6,391 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 6.8% from 2016 to 2022. Latin America heavy construction equipment, namely, excavators, loaders, dumpers, and compactors among others are used for heavy construction tasks such as lifting, mining, excavation, and demolition. These heavy equipment are used to move raw materials from one place to another.
Some of the factors that drive the Latin America heavy construction equipment market are recovery from the construction sector, the surge in private-public partnerships, and rapid urbanization. In addition, development of low-emission and energy-efficient equipment provides opportunities to the Latin America heavy construction equipment market growth. However, fluctuation in oil prices, increased carbon footprint, and weak economic conditions restrain the Latin America heavy construction equipment market growth.
Fuel consumption and carbon emissions are the major concerns for most of the construction companies which expend more on fuel consumption than on maintenance of the machine. Fuel expenditure accounts for a significant portion of the overall construction expenditure of the equipment. Heavy construction equipment manufacturers have launched several machines with high fuel efficiency. However, they are reluctant towards investment in these equipment that consume less fuel due to their high prices compared to the conventional machines. Extensive R&D activities conducted by equipment manufacturers are expected to enable development of low-cost machines with better fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions.
The Latin America heavy construction equipment market is segmented on the basis of equipment, application, end user, and country. Based on equipment, it is divided into earthmoving, material handling, heavy construction vehicles, and others. Earthmoving equipment is further classified into excavators, loaders, backhoe loaders, and motor graders. Material handling is further bifurcated into a crane and telescopic handlers while heavy construction vehicles are divided into dumpers, tippers, and others (compactors and pavers). By application, the Latin America heavy construction equipment industry is categorized into excavation & demolition, heavy lifting, material handling, tunneling, and recycling & waste management. Based on the end user, Latin America heavy construction equipment market is classified as infrastructure, mining, construction, oil & gas, manufacturing, and others. The Latin America heavy construction equipment market is analyzed across countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, rest of South America, and Central America.

Latin America Heavy Construction Equipment Market Report Highlights
By EQUIPMENT TYPE
By END-USER INDUSTRY
Development of low emission, fuel-efficient equipment has a significant effect on the Latin America heavy construction equipment industry. Construction companies are concerned with fuel consumption and carbon emissions, while these companies expend more on fuel consumption than on maintenance of the machine, which leads to a significant portion. The manufacturers in the Latin America heavy construction equipment market have launched several machines with high fuel efficiency. However, construction companies are reluctant to invest on heavy equipment that consume less fuel due to their high prices compared to the conventional machines. However, extensive R&D activities conducted by equipment manufacturers are expected to enable them to develop low-cost machines with better fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions. For example, Caterpillar Inc. launched its new 336E H hybrid excavator, which has lower fuel consumption by around 25%. It also launched 996K XE wheel loader, which is fitted with new, stepless powertrain system designed to reduce fuel consumption.
