(MENAFN- GetNews) The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to be the fastest-growing market for construction equipment till 2030
Factors such as the booming demand for housing units, owing to rapid urbanization, and mounting investments being made in the infrastructure sector will drive the construction equipment market growth during the forecast period (2021–2030). According to P & S Intelligence, the market generated a revenue of around $180 billion in 2020. In recent years, the increasing use of electric and autonomous equipment, due to the high requirement for greater worker safety on-site and enhanced productivity, has become a prominent market trend.
One of the primary growth drivers for the market is the burgeoning demand for housing projects, on account of the escalating urbanization rate in several countries. People across the world are shifting from rural areas to urban areas in search of employment opportunities and improved living standards. The surging influx of people in urban localities can also be ascribed to the soaring global population. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), around 68% of the world population will reside in urban areas by 2050.

At present, the construction equipment market is consolidated in nature due to the presence of a few players such as Caterpillar Inc., Doosan Infracore, Sany Heavy Industry Co. Ltd., Hitachi Construction Machinery, Joseph Cyril Bamford Excavators Ltd., Volvo Construction Equipment, Deere & Company, Terex Corporation, and Liebherr AG. These players are focusing on product launches to gain a competitive edge. For instance, in April 2019, Volvo Construction Equipment announced its plan to introduce electrically-propelled compact excavators (EC15 to EC27) and wheel loaders (L20 to L28) to stop the development of diesel engines for these models.
The product segment of the construction equipment market is categorized into earth-moving machinery, concrete and road construction machinery, and material-handling machinery. Under this segment, the earth-moving machinery category is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. This will be due to the good grip offered by earth-moving machinery on snow and in the mud. This machinery is used for grading soil, laying foundations, digging trenches, removing rocks and dirt, and carrying out demolition at construction sites.
Furthermore, the power output segment of the construction equipment market is classified into 400 HP. Among these, the 101–200 HP category generated the highest revenue in 2020, due to the favorable power-to-weight ratio and better fuel economy offered by equipment with a power output of 101–200 HP. Owing to these advantages, such equipment help in reducing the operating costs for constructors and construction equipment operators.
