Rise of Infrastructure Projects

The expansion of infrastructure projects in urban areas as a result of government modernization efforts can drive global demand in the heavy construction equipment market. China has invested nearly $ 13.1 billion to build Beijing International Airport. Governments around the world are pouring money into the construction industry to create jobs and opportunity. The construction of stadiums for the 2020 Olympic Games and the 2022 World Cup is boosting government investment and can bode well for the world market.

Equipment rental / leasing

The increase in rental / leasing companies should benefit the global heavy construction equipment market. Customers can lease earthmoving machines based on their preferences and construction plans. Building contractors can acquire high-tech heavy construction equipment and complete development projects in a short time. Improving economic scenarios, the rapid construction of residential and commercial infrastructure and the expansion of the real estate industry can offer opportunities for the market. Heavy construction equipment is expected to be used on public road projects first. The American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) is putting pressure on the US government to come up with a multi-year plan for highway construction and road beautification. This can provide consistent employment opportunities and help keep the construction industry stable.

Strict government regulations

Strict government regulations regarding its use and the lack of licenses or permits can limit market expansion. The time-consuming and costly process of granting permits and complying with environmental committees can be difficult for real estate developers.

Skilled workers shortage

The market can be hampered by a lack of suitable and qualified workers to operate the equipment. Market participants can be deterred by high expenses for device maintenance and employee training for machine maintenance, repairs and continuous operation.
