Tower Crane Rental Market Research: 2032

The Global Tower Crane Rental Market was valued at $3.8 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $6 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2023 to 2032. Tower crane rental is the service to rent out construction equipment to end users for a certain period by signing contracts with terms and conditions about their usage. Construction equipment is majorly used at construction mining sites to facilitate heavy operations.

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 such as tower cranes 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 tower crane rental market growth.

Tower Crane Rental Market by Type

 

By Type:  

By type, the market is classified into self-erecting, luffing jib, hammer top and flat top. The construction industry has been experiencing significant growth in various regions around the world. Rapid urbanization, infrastructure development, and economic growth have led to an increased demand for construction projects. Hammer head cranes, with their ability to handle large-scale construction tasks, have become essential equipment to meet the demands of these projects. Hammer head cranes segment is expected to generate the largest revenue during the forecast period.

These cranes are known for their impressive lifting capacities. They are designed to handle heavy loads, making them well-suited for large-scale construction projects such as high-rise buildings, infrastructure development, and industrial construction. As construction projects continue to increase in scale and complexity, the demand for cranes with high lifting capacities such as hammer head cranes is expected to rise. However, self erecting cranes segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR. The development of advanced technology, such as remote control systems, load monitoring, and telematics, has improved the performance and capabilities of self-erecting cranes. These technological advancements make them more efficient, reliable, and user-friendly, further driving their demand in the construction industry.

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 growth of the market and such developments are expected to offer lucrative tower crane rental market opportunity.

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 the expansion of  tower crane rental market size in developed countries.

Tower Crane Rental Market by Capacity

By Capacity:

The market is divided into less than 5 Ton, 6 to 10 Ton and more than 10 Ton. The less than 5 ton segment generated the highest revenue in 2020. In some regions, local regulations and safety requirements may restrict the use of larger and heavier cranes on certain construction sites. Low lifting capacity tower cranes offer a compliant solution that meets the safety regulations and requirements of these areas. As safety regulations become more stringent, the demand for low capacity cranes that meet the specified criteria increases.

However, the 6-10 ton segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR share in the market during the tower crane rental market forecast period. Medium lifting capacity tower cranes are designed to operate efficiently in confined spaces. They offer a balance between lifting capacity and a more compact size, making them suitable for construction sites with limited space or restricted access. These cranes can be maneuvered into tight spots and positioned closer to the construction area, maximizing their efficiency in smaller or urban projects.r

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 growth of tower crane rental industry.

Tower Crane Rental Market by End User

By End User:

The tower crane rental market is divided into construction & infrastructure, mining, energy, and others. Construction & infrastructure segment generated the highest revenue in 2020. Renting tower cranes shifts the responsibility of maintenance and repairs to the rental company. Rental companies typically provide well-maintained and regularly inspected cranes, ensuring reliable performance and reducing the risk of unexpected downtime. If any issues arise during the rental period, the rental company is responsible for resolving them promptly, minimizing disruptions to the construction schedule.

However, the mining segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR share in the tower crane rental market during the forecast period. Mining operations are subject to stringent safety regulations and standards. Rental companies ensure that their tower cranes comply with these safety requirements and possess the necessary certifications and inspections. By renting cranes, mining companies can rely on the rental company's expertise in safety compliance, ensuring that the equipment meets the required standards and contributes to a safe working environment.

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.
