The category for material handling equipments exhibits a moderately consolidated landscape, with majority of the share in the market being held by few of the global players who seek to maintain competition by implementing both organic and inorganic strategies as part of their core growth plan. The players are utilizing strategic activities like mergers, acquisitions, and new product launches to increase their competitive share and improve material handling operations through the quick adoption of cutting-edge technologies. For the purpose of making a significant market penetration, they regularly supply a range of specialist devices to their end users across nations. In addition, they are investing heaving in research & development to enhance their product lines. Despite intense competition, buyers in the category possess low negotiation capability as the market is ruled by few of the large players who leave less scope for switching to other options or let small regional players survive for long.

Cost of equipment, financing, insurance, fuel expenses, and repairs & maintenance constitute the total cost of ownership for the products offered in the category. The factors that drive the prices of the equipments include demand & supply, manufacturer, model & safety features, and resale value.Prices of equipment are impacted by the laws of supply and demand. Prices decrease as a result of increased competition among firms for machinery. Purchasers benefit if a certain equipment is oversupplied in the market. In addition,there are many equipment manufacturers, but only a handful control the market. The annual sales of new and second-hand equipment around the world reflect the fact that many businesses only purchase one or two specific brands of machinery. In the U.S., the price of high-rise crawler excavator ranges between USD 99,500 to USD 124,500. The price of diesel forklift ranges between USD 5,900 to USD 9,500.

Asia-Pacific region dominates the global material handling equipments category, holding substantial share of revenue. Growth of the region is attributed to the continuous rise of food retail sector which aims to boost the speed and effectiveness of picking & sorting processes, hence, requiring the need for the products offered in the category. In addition, strong economic growth in China, India, and several ASEAN nations is responsible for the expansion of the Asian market, which in turn has contributed to the overall growth of the region. Selecting an equipment that doesn’t incurs high cost of maintenance, thoroughly observing the space where the equipment will be deployed in order to get the relevant machinery (i.e. not too big, nor too small), selecting a supplier that is reliable and offers the equipments which are safe and doesn’t compromise on the quality, and comparing multiple suppliers to get the best deal are some of the best sourcing practices considered in this category.
