Crane Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)

The crane market accounted for USD 20 Billion in 2020 is expected to reach USD 49 Billion by 2026, projecting a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period.

With the fall in demand for any new raw materials handling or construction equipment due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the industry has seen a large downfall in sales and market value. With the social distancing norms and lockdown implemented all over the world, the construction industry came to a standstill, indirectly affecting a major chunk of the cranes market.

Some of the major factors driving the growth of the market are a rise in new construction and renovation activities, and the growing need for sustainable construction and innovation, the increased capability of building very high sky scrapers, the demand for high rise cranes with heavy load carrying capacity and an increase in investments by the mining sector in construction equipment, across the world.

- However, an increase in the demand for rental cranes may hinder the growth and demand for new cranes. But, enactment of stringent emission norms is expected to create demand for new cranes that comply with the new regulations.
- The overall situation of the crane market has shown signs of development, owing to the growth in the number of mega construction projects in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. The Belt and Road initiative led by China, which involves the construction of ports, roads, railways, airports, and energy projects, is expected to significantly drive the demand for cranes.

Key Market Trends

Growing Construction Activity to Benefit The Market

The construction industry is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years, with good opportunities in infrastructure, residential, and non-residential sectors.

Some of the major factors driving the market are the increasing construction of multi-family houses (with the growing trend of nuclear families); and increasing investments in the construction of roads, highways, smart cities, metros, bridges, and expressways due to growing population and urbanization.

Asia-Pacific region is expected to be a major market propelling the global construction industry, with augmenting construction activities in countries such as India and ASEAN countries (including Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and others).

For instance, in China, the demand for cranes is increasing owing to the ongoing One Belt One Road initiative. The initiative will aid in infrastructural development such as railways, buildings, and energy projects (China, North-East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, and West Asia) stretching from China’s western regions to Europe. The US government is also expected to increase its infrastructure spending by over USD 1 trillion in the next 10 years, to create more jobs in the country.

Additionally, in India, the construction sector is one of the booming industries. The construction sector in the country is expected to grow twice as fast as China’s till 2030, with the country’s populations. The infrastructure sector is an important pillar for the growth of the Indian economy.

Asia Pacific Is The Fastest Growing Market

Asia-Pacific has been dominating the global crane market. The Asia-Pacific region's infrastructure development is being driven by increasing government spending on projects and the overall construction sector in both China and India, as the construction sector is considered one of the major factors in boosting economic growth and aids in creating jobs.

China is also the largest manufacturer of cranes. The country is expected to witness slight growth in the construction sector in 2019. The prime reason being the rise in railway construction projects. The government has also approved the construction of urban and inter-city rail projects worth USD 127.26 billion (CNY 860 billion) in several cities including Shanghai and Wuhan.

In India, the construction sector is expected to witness fast growth, owing to a huge pipeline of infrastructure projects such as railways, urban infrastructure, ports, and airport segments. Apart from the aforementioned, railway station development, increasing metro lines, and the bullet train project is expected to offer numerous opportunities for both construction companies and crane manufacturers and providers. Additionally, the growing trend of using precast construction techniques in real estate and metros is gaining momentum, which is driving the demand for tower cranes in the 10-20 metric ton range.

Competitive Landscape

The crane market is dominated by a few major players. These players have successfully capitalized on the significant demand for reliable cranes, from key players in the construction, mining, and industrial sectors. In terms of tier-2 and tier-3 supply chains and supplying to small- and medium-sized applications, the market studied is fairly fragmented, with the presence of regional players. Some of the leading players in the market studied are Manitowoc, Tadano, Kobelco, Cargotec, Kone Cranes, Liebherr, Palfinger, and XCMG.
