Report Overview

The global boom lifts market size was estimated at USD 10.4 billion in 2021. It is expected to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4% from 2022 to 2030. An increase in construction and infrastructural activities across the globe are expected to open new growth avenues for players in the industry. Boom lifts witnessed a major disruption in growth due to the unprecedented effect of the global pandemic. Some of its major end-use industries including construction, transportation & logistics were hit hard by the pandemic. These sectors witnessed challenges such as project delays, contract cancellation, and supply-chain disruption. Furthermore, the shutdowns of numerous construction sites including industrial facilities due to lockdowns still remain in place.

 U.S. boom lifts market size, by engine type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, retail e-commerce sales grew in the second quarter of 2022 by 2.7% as compared to the first quarter. Transportation & logistics companies often deal with goods in humongous quantities, making it difficult to load them manually on transportation vehicles. Therefore, boom lifts enable logistic companies to move heavy goods easily, and as a result, are extensively used in the transportation & logistics industry.

In transportation and logistics, boom lifts are used for moving heavy cargo materials. Boom lifts are also used in daily warehouse maintenance which offers efficient navigation through narrow aisles. The growth in the transportation & logistics industry is attributable to the growing e-commerce retail coupled with rising global trade activities

Boom lift enables easy and safe reach for high aerial works in construction with a strong platform. Growing demand for residential & non-residential construction and maintenance of old buildings are expected to facilitate the demand for boom lifts. According to the U.S. census bureau, the total construction activity in March 2022 increased by 11.7%, as compared to March 2021. The industry’s growth is attributed to increased construction activities, especially high-rise building projects.

Boom lift market operations rely heavily on the skills and efforts of the workforce and management group. The operations benefit from their expertise, understanding of the industry, and experience. Since there is a severe shortage of qualified workers in the market, competition for highly skilled labor remains fierce. As a result, it is anticipated that the lack of an adequately skilled workforce will have a detrimental effect on the operations and financial standing of industry participants, impeding the expansion of the market.

Engine Type Insights

The engine-powered segment dominated the market and accounted for 66.1% of the global revenue share in 2021. The increased demand for the diesel engine-powered segment for usage in outdoor applications to move heavy loads remains a strong driver of growth. They are designed for utilization in worst-case loading applications as they have high vertical reach and enhanced load-carrying capacity.

The engine-powered boom lift can be deployed in remote locations owing to the easy availability of diesel or other petroleum products. Major benefits of engine-powered boom lifts include superior performance, high durability, and unmatched versatility, which continue to drive growth.

The electric engine type segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period. They are suitable for usage in confined spaces wherein horizontal movement of the operator is necessary. These lifts are designed for utilization in side-by-side work environments. The electric segment has compact storage length and self-leveling platforms.

The compact design of electric boom lifts makes them suitable for use in warehouses that have narrow aisles and confined spaces. They allow technicians to access and perform tasks in difficult-to-reach areas of commercial and institutional buildings. Moreover, the electric segment offers high efficiency and has low operating costs owing to long-duty cycles between two charges.

Product Insights

The others product segment accounted for a dominant revenue share of 56.5% in 2021. It comprises self-propelled boom lifts, which include both, electricity-driven and diesel models. They are convenient and highly flexible. The rotation and articulation of these lifts allow them to out-maneuver various obstacles without the requirement of repositioning their bases.

Truck mounts, also known as vehicle-mounted boom lifts, are access platforms that are mounted on the chassis of lorries, trucks, or vans. These are specially modified with outriggers to ensure high performance and stability. They are frequently used by local government agencies and utility companies to preserve and construct general roadside infrastructures such as street lights and telecommunications.

The trailer-mounted booms product segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period. These lifts are suitable for a variety of outdoor and indoor industrial and construction applications. They have self-leveling hydraulic outriggers that stabilize booms, making them highly safe and sturdy.

Crawler/spider are mobile elevating work platforms that are stable and leveled as they have four stabilizer legs. These lifts can be maneuvered in a variety of ways to get workers into corners, tight spaces, and difficult-to-reach areas. Crawler/spider booms are lightweight and extremely compact when stowed for transportation, making them simple to transport to job sites.

End-use Insights

The rental segment dominated the market and accounted for 93.5% of global revenue in 2021. Rental firms are being forced to increase the size of their fleets as a result of rising demand for boom lifts from the construction, mining, warehousing, logistics, manufacturing, and automotive industries.

In the construction industry, achieving massive output in a short duration is often crucial for controlling costs. Boom lifts are utilized at construction sites to quickly finish the strenuous labor process in place of erecting scaffolding. Boom lifts are designed to operate at heights that are above the capabilities of other machinery.

 Global boom lifts market share, by end-use, 2021 (%)

Boom lifts are necessary for performing routine maintenance and repairs on electrical transmission lines and streetlights. These are key duties of government agencies like electricity boards, municipal corporations, and other agencies. A significant increase in the demand for boom lifts is expected owing to the rising government spending on construction and maintaining infrastructure in developing nations.

Transportation & logistics is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period. Boom lifts are necessary for large logistics facilities, multi-layer stacking, and efficient storage of goods. These warehouses exhibit constrained spaces and congested passageways. Therefore, boom lifts are a suitable option for material handling, loading, and unloading. The boom lifts help minimize any risks or injuries to workers.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for 51.9% of the global revenue share in 2021. Boom lifts are widely used in the construction industry to reach elevated areas easily and safely for painting, cutting tree branches, and other electrical & plumbing-related tasks. Rapid infrastructural development and rising government investment in residential and commercial construction are expected to augment the demand in North America.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period. Growing infrastructure development activities in the Asia Pacific have created lucrative growth opportunities for machinery rental companies, thereby, augmenting the demand for these products in the region.
