Excavators are predominantly used in construction as well as agriculture sector for various applications. However, a large excavator is not always optimal to performing small scale task. Whereas, by using mini excavators, these tasks can be performed easily and at lower cost, which is anticipated to boost the demand for mini excavators. Further, rise in demand for mini excavators, owing to rise in construction sector is projected to propel growth of the global mini excavator market. On the other hand, rise in world population has significantly increased demand in the agriculture sector, thereby; positively influencing mini excavators market growth. Furthermore, the availability of a wide range of mini excavator in various lifting capacities makes it suitable for use in various small-scale applications. Thus, mini excavators are extensively used for excavating small trenches, pits, handling lighter loads, maintaining land surface, and others. The development of advanced battery technologies has helped to ease the process of owning and operating mini excavator. In addition, integration of cameras and other spatial sensors have fueled the development of new generation of mini excavators, which puts lesser burden on the operator.

Major players in the mini excavators industry have focused on development of high-performance battery powered mini excavators. For instance, in April 2022, Hitachi Construction Machinery Tierra Co., Ltd., a leading provider of construction machinery launched a 5-tonne class ‘ZX55U-6EB’ battery-powered mini excavator in Europe. It is based on a short rear-end swing design mini excavator, which allows efficient operation even in confined spaces. The owners of this machine can expect reduced maintenance costs and downtime, compared to diesel-powered excavators. Key players offer mini excavators that are operator friendly. These excavators have features that make it easy for the operator to stay comfortably in the cabin of excavators. For instance, in November 2020, J C Bamford Excavators Ltd. a manufacturer of industrial equipment launched a fully glazed cab on the 19C-1E platform. It is an industry first for the electric mini excavator sector. It is equipped with an electric heater to provide instant heat to demist windows and warm the cab working environment for the operator.

The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on the 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 the production of many components of mini excavators due to lockdown. The economic slowdown initially resulted in reduced spending on mini excavator from commercial and non-commercial users. Furthermore, the number of COVID-19 cases is expected to reduce in the near future as the vaccine for COVID-19 is introduced in the market. This has led to the reopening of mini excavators manufacturing companies at their full-scale capacities, which is expected to help the market to recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection cases begin to decline, mini excavator manufacturers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

Furthermore, the increased investments on infrastructure projects such as road construction, by the governments across the globe have surged the demand for mini excavators.

The mini excavator market is segmented on the basis of type, size, end user, and region. By type, the market is categorized into wheeled and track mini excavator. On the basis of size, it is categorized into less than 4 tons and 4 tons to 10 tons. On the basis on end user, the market is categorized into landscaping & construction and agriculture. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia Pacific dominated the market in 2020, accounting for the largest mini excavators market share, and is anticipated to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to rise in spending on construction activities by government and non-government entities.
