Construction Equipment Market Worth $346.23 Billion By 2030

March 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Construction Equipment Market Growth & Trends

The global construction equipment market size is projected to reach USD 346.23 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.3% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new study by Grand View Research Inc. The rising investments made by governments around the world in the development of public infrastructure is one of the key factors anticipated to fuel the construction equipment market growth over the projected period. Additionally, the demand for construction equipment is predicted to rise as a result of the increased residential and commercial construction activity caused by the growing population in emerging nations like India. Thus, it is projected that the construction equipment market will expand steadily over the forecast period.

In the upcoming years, the industry is predicted to grow due to favorable government efforts. For instance, the U.S. federal government's announcement of stimulus packages in August 2021, which included USD 550 billion in new federal investment for infrastructure modernization, is anticipated to spur building spending in the nation. Similarly, the Government of India announced in 2019 that it will invest USD 1.4 trillion in infrastructure projects from 2019 to 2023; this represents the country's anticipated demand for construction equipment throughout the forecast period.

The COVID-19 epidemic hindered market expansion due to supply chain interruptions and the temporary closure of dealer locations. The resumption of building for ongoing and new projects, however, resulted in a significant rise in demand for construction equipment in 2021. The market's expansion is anticipated to be hampered over the forecast period by an abrupt demand for infrastructure and development, which will lead to a lack of inventories and an increase in the price of base materials.

High ownership costs are one of the key factors limiting the expansion of the construction equipment business. These machines need frequent maintenance, such as oil and other lubricant changes, engine, and hydraulic motor service, filter replacement, and tire-related work, which has a significant impact on market data. Additionally, industry players are concentrating on providing intelligent construction equipment, which needs skilled operators for safe and secure utilization. The adoption of construction equipment is being hampered by a lack of qualified and professional operators in the market.
