Global construction equipment market stood at USD126.50 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.08% by 2026, owing to the development of urban infrastructure, including metro rail projects, ports, industrial corridors and freight corridors. Usage in oil & gas, construction, infrastructure, and manufacturing are the primary factors contributing to the growth of the construction equipment market which is anticipated to fuel the global construction equipment market in the coming years.

Construction equipment refers to heavy-duty vehicles specially designed for executing construction tasks, most frequent ones involving earthwork operations. They are also known as heavy machines, heavy trucks, engineering equipment, heavy vehicles, or heavy hydraulics. The basic operations involved in the construction of any project are excavation, digging of large quantities of earth, moving them to fairly long distances, placement, compacting, levelling, dozing, grading, hauling, etc., where construction equipment is used.
Based on End-User Industry, the market is segmented into Oil & Gas, Construction, Infrastructure, Manufacturing and Others. Construction is the leading end user industry in the construction equipment market with the share of 28.09% in 2020. This is due to the increasing inclination towards the adoption of various construction equipment by medium and large builders and real estate developers for the construction of high-rise buildings and skyscrapers. The use of construction equipment in construction reduces the time and increases the efficiency of work which makes it popular among real estate developers.

On the basis of type, the market is segmented into Loader, Cranes, Forklift, Excavator, Dozers, and Others. In 2020, the excavator segment is dominating with a share of 32.99% in the construction equipment market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.44% from 2021-2026. This is due to its heavy weightlifting capacity, rotating cab and movable track which makes it a perfect equipment for material handling, digging trenches and holes to lift away waste and excavating mines. These properties increase the application of excavators in different types of construction and infrastructure projects.

Based on region, in 2020, Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of 41.25% in the construction equipment market owing to the increasing demand for housing projects as a result of increased population in the region which generates lucrative growth opportunities for the construction equipment market. Moreover, continuous government budgetary allocation towards improvement of rail, road and ports, such as the project “Belt and Road Initiative” by China, are expected to propel the demand for construction equipment in the forecast period. Furthermore, augmenting construction activities in the region are expected to contribute to the growth in the construction equipment market.
