The global portable wheel jack market is anticipated to witness noteworthy growth in 2019, and reach a market value of around US$ 5,000 million, while registering a Y-o-Y growth rate of nearly over 3%. Additionally, the global demand for portable wheel jacks is expected to be influenced by the safety standards implemented by almost every end-use industry. In addition, the efficient and fool proof work of portable wheel jacks is expected to increase their use across various industries. 

Mining & Construction Generating Significant Demand

On the basis of end user, the automotive segment is foreseen to experience substantial growth. However, the construction and mining segment is anticipated to account for a prominent volume share in the global portable wheel jack market. The floor jack/service jacks sub-segment under automotive end use is expected to witness a growth of 4.0 percent during the forecast period, mostly driven by increasing garages and car service stations across the globe. 

Based on product type, the hydraulic portable wheel jacks segment is expected to be a prominent segment in the portable wheel jack market, accounting for more than 50% of the market share. Hydraulic portable wheel jacks are less likely to get affected by rust, which provides these jacks great working life. This will lure customers who are looking for a long-term solution for heavy lifting operations. Mechanical jacks are ideal for lifting light and moderate weights, but these jacks are incapable of lifting heavy loads and cannot sustain multi-toned weights, which can be easily lifted using hydraulic jacks. This factor is surging the demand for hydraulic jacks in target regions.
