Market Dynamics

Over the past ten years, the construction industry has experienced remarkable growth. Moreover, the U.S., China, and India are responsible for half of the world's growth. Due to the increase in population and the emergence of new firms and corporations, there is a greater need for residential and commercial assets for housing. The development of healthcare facilities, social welfare initiatives, educational infrastructure, and consumer retail marketplaces are all benefited by the growth of the global economy.

Due to the huge demand for homes and the limited time available, the building industry must speed up their manufacturing process to meet the demand on time. In the construction sector, a wheelbarrow is useful because it uniformly distributes the weight of the material between the wheel and the user. As a result, it is possible to transport bigger and larger weights more easily than if the operator had to carry the full load. The ongoing growth of the construction industry is expected to boost the wheelbarrow market growth.

The increase in demand for wheelbarrows from the agriculture and farming sector is due to the conveniences of transportation of materials such as fertilizer, animal feeding, and other material & supplies around the farm, from one place to another. In addition, wheelbarrows enhance the productivity and growth of agriculture and farming drastically. Moreover, it helps farmers to transport large quantities of good materials such as organic and inorganic manure around the farmland. In addition, the rise of e-commerce and online sales has played a significant role in driving the growth of wheelbarrows.

The availability of online marketplace and e-commerce platforms has made it easier for consumers to purchase products. In addition, the material handling equipment (MHE) industry is expected to continue to expand due to the more widespread use of customized systems and mining equipment.

Moreover, wheelbarrow machines are typically made of steel and plastic materials, owing to their high strength. Therefore, any fluctuations in the prices of steel make it difficult for the market players to stay profitable and decide on their budgets. For instance, the prices of hot rolled steel in the U.S. have increased by more than 215% to $1,825 since March 2020. Prior to that, its price was in the range of $500 to $800 in 2017. Moreover, the prices of metals increased two-fold since COVID-19. Such fluctuations play an instrumental role in restraining the growth of the wheelbarrow industry.

The demand for wheelbarrow decreased in the year 2020, owing to low demand from different industries due to lockdowns imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic had shut down the production of various industries, mainly owing to prolonged lockdowns in major global countries.

This hampered the growth of the wheelbarrow market significantly during the pandemic. The major demand for wheelbarrows was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which was severely affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for wheelbarrows. Moreover, the market has recovered due to the launch of COVID-19 vaccine and the government has relaxed the lockdown norms.

Furthermore, the construction and agriculture industries have also grown because of the increased urbanization and industrialization of developing nations. Additionally, a growing population is a crucial factor in the market's growth in demand for infrastructure and construction projects. The ongoing development of industries is creating demand for new infrastructure building in different sectors including railways, roads, tunnels, non-residential and residential buildings, and mining. Wheelbarrows also make it simpler to move items from one place to another. This leads to rising demand for wheelbarrows, thereby creating a major opportunity in emerging countries for the growth of the wheelbarrow market.
