The global market for Construction Equipment is forecast to exceed 1.3 million units by 2024, driven by rapid urbanization, resurgence in housing, non-residential and infrastructure construction activity in global markets, and development of machines with greater performance and efficiency capabilities. Renovation of old buildings and structures and strong government push to build green residential and non-residential structures will spur sales of construction equipment in advanced economies. A noteworthy trend in the market is manufacturers’ focus on integrating advanced digital technologies and automation capabilities in a bid to improve the efficiency of machines and engines. Few of the breakthroughs achieved in this space include electronically controlled hydraulics; integrated fleet management capabilities and the ability to track idle time and fuel consumption; and predictive-data diagnostics capabilities that make maintenance faster and less expensive. Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide, supported by rapid urbanization and construction of smart cities; increase in construction projects based on public-private partnerships (PPP); strong government focus on the development of public infrastructure; expanding manufacturing base and a parallel increase in new construction and renovation of industrial plants and warehousing facilities; surging foreign direct investments in the services sector and a parallel increase in commercial real estate investments.
