North America and Asia-Pacific regions spend heavily on infrastructure projects, such as roads, tunnels, railways, bridges, and metros, owing to increase in demand for efficient public transport. The manufacturing sector, which uses compact mobile cranes for material handling, is also witnessing a notable growth. In other regions, such as Africa, Europe, Middle East, and Latin America, the building and infrastructure construction sectors are witnessing a significant boom. Mobile cranes are extensively used on construction sites for lifting heavy loads, therefore; growth of the construction industry is anticipated to positively impact the mobile cranes market. Furthermore, mobile cranes have mobility in various types of terrains, such as mountainous, lose soil, and dense forests. This, increasing the usage of mobile cranes for various activities. In addition, various public-private partnerships (PPP) are being formed in countries globally, such as Mexico, India, China, Canada, and Japan for speeding up construction projects. This has led to significant inflow of money and resources towards the infrastructural development. Therefore, it is anticipated to positively influence the mobile crane market growth.

Moreover, various market players now offer cranes with longer telescopic booms that can operate at a considerably higher speed. Furthermore, incorporation of hybrid power mode technology, enables the mobile cranes to operate on oil as well as electricity.. This, is anticipated to enhance the usability of mobile cranes, thereby, positively influencing the market.

Major players in the industry have focused on development of high-performance and heavy lifting mobile cranes. For instance, in February 2021, Manitex Valla, an Italy-based manufacturer of mobile cranes, launched V110 R Electric Mobile Crane, which is a battery-operated and remote-controlled mobile crane. This equipment features a front wheel drive and a lifting capacity of up to 11 tones to a service height of 10.4 meters. Furthermore, in December 2021, XCMG, a Chinese manufacturer of mobile cranes, launched XCMG XCT25 EV, the world’s first truck crane with hybrid technology. It is a 25-ton capacity hybrid crane, which can easily switch to different operating modes that are, hybrid, pure electricity, pure oil, and plug-in.

The novel coronavirus 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 later became a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic halted the production of many components of mobile cranes due to lockdown. The economic slowdown initially resulted in reduced spending on mobile cranes by the construction sector. However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced. As of mid-2022, the number of COVID-19 cases have diminished significantly. This has led to the full-fledged reopening of mobile cranes manufacturing companies 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.

Furthermore, the aftermarket support for the mobile crane industry has advanced significantly. Various companies such as Manitowoc, Liebherr, and others are developing technologies for diagnosing and predicting issues in cranes systems and scheduling maintenance. In addition, companies such as VerveTronics offers various Internet of Things (IOT) solutions for preventive and predictive maintenance technology for the mobile cranes. These systems can be integrated or retrofitted in the existing cranes. Such advancement in aftermarket is expected to incredibly enhance the service life of mobile cranes. Thereby, driving the growth of the mobile crane market.
