Frequently Asked Questions about Crane Market

How will the global crane market fare in the future?

Cranes plays a pivotal role in the development of infrastructure, and are an essential part of various operations. With the flourishing industrial sector, including mining, manufacturing, construction, utilities, and oil & gas, the demand for cranes is expected to increase all across the globe during the forecast period.

Will rental cranes affect the sales of new cranes in the global market?

Major restraints in the sales of cranes is the growing trend of rental equipment. It has been observed that, a majority of end users are turning towards used loader cranes, as new loader cranes are costly and require high maintenance. Moreover, strong demand for used cranes against low-cost China-based cranes has been observed in India, Vietnam, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA), primarily due to the lack of monetary resources to invest in new cranes.

Which product type holds potential growth opportunities for market players?

The tower cranes segment is projected to lead the global crane market in terms of value, followed by the all-terrain cranes segment. In terms of growth rate, the tower cranes segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of nearly 5%. Demand drivers, going forward, are mining operations, urban infrastructure, irrigation, and road construction, which will influence the crane market.

What is the degree of competition in the crane market?

The competition is intensifying as regional players are targeting construction contracts and are concentrating on manufacturing energy-efficient cranes in order to meet safety standards laid down by governments. Currently, developing economies will offer strong opportunity for manufacturers and suppliers. Key players hold major revenue share in the global crane market.

Which region will lead the global sales of cranes?

China and APEC will remain in the frontline of the crane market. Rising investments in infrastructure projects such as roads, airports, waterways, ports, irrigation, pipelines, railways, and urban infrastructure in these regions are boosting the growth of the crane market.

Manufacturers Stay Focused on Tower Cranes

Tower cranes are suitable in high-structure construction works, as they are able to lift heavy loads safely and efficiently. Moreover, they exhibit excellent stability and are functional in complex lifting operations. This study reveals that, shareholders would glean over US$ 20 Bn from tower cranes towards the end of the mentioned timeframe. Rough terrain cranes (RTCs) and all terrain cranes (ATCs) are also gaining traction, as they are considered ideal for uneven and rocky terrains.

Rapid Growth of Industry-adjacent Sectors Fuels Market Growth in APAC

Procuring nearly half of total market revenue, Asia Pacific (APAC) continues to reflect value-creation prospects in the global crane market. Represented by China, top-line growth of various sectors such as   construction, mining, and automotive is creating a conducive environment to drive market value in the region. Market players are focusing on strategic collaborations and investments at scale to boost sales growth and expand their aperture. Furthermore, the crane market in APAC is likely to reach around US$ 30 Bn by 2029.

Internet of Things (IoT) - Onramp to Bigger Margins

Market players must develop comprehensive strategies to integrate technology into conventional cranes for capturing the value at stake. Internet of Things (IoT) helps in upending maintenance and repair expenses by enabling the equipment to self-detect the necessary faults for repair. The technology is primarily shifting towards artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analytics, with prime focus on reducing human intervention. Mobile crane manufacturers are aggressively moving towards the integration of technology with machine control circuits, and leveraging a two-way communication system in a bid to alert operators in case of faults or emergencies during operation.

Tower cranes account for higher demand

ATCs to see stable adoption

Construction industry remains key application area

Moderate application in mining sector

High demand for cranes with capacity up to 10 MT

Demand for 50 to 250 MT capacity cranes to surge

Stiff boom cranes stay sought-after

Knuckle boom/ telescopic boom cranes to witness sales decline

How Growth will Unfold

Crane manufacturers will devote significant capital to the construction industry, owing to investment upheaval in civil infrastructure development across commercial and residential sectors, especially in developing regions. The mining industry has been undergoing a resurgence, primarily attributable to the surging demand for minerals such as coal to cater to increasing electricity demand. This, in turn, is fueling the adoption of cranes in remote mining operations. Increasing scope of application in general engineering is further broadening growth and profitability avenues.
