Market Report Description

The Global Mobile Cranes Market size is expected to reach $16.9 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 4.8% CAGR during the forecast period.

Mobile cranes are large pieces of equipment that help lift heavy items around a construction site. For simple transportation of the machinery through both rough and smooth terrains, they are either tire-mounted or crawler-mounted. In addition, mobile cranes also feature self-erection capabilities, making them ideal for use in congested metropolitan areas and building sites.

These pieces of equipment are essential for construction projects since they aid in the movement of components and materials both within the construction site and between offsite facilities. The demand for these equipment is expected to be driven by continued urbanisation and consequent measures aimed at constructing new and upgrading current infrastructure.

Constant technological advancements, as well as a strong focus on automation and machine safety is supporting the growth of the market. The majority of the advancements are focused on creating personalized solutions for these machines.

Modern equipment now includes novel features such as GPS tracking and fleet management, as well as telematics solutions, which is the result of the integration of cutting-edge technologies. For example, Terex Corporation’s products are delivered with the IC-1 Plus control system that assists operators in determining the lifting capability for each position of the boom. Due to this incorporation of modern systems such as telematics in the mobile cranes, the demand and growth of the market would witness a spike in the coming years.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted almost all the domains of the business verticals. The imposition of various regulations to curb the spread of the virus like partial or complete lockdown, travel band and temporary ban on imports & exports have negatively impacted various market segments.

The COVID-19 pandemic had just a little impact on the market for mobile cranes. Due to government lockdown orders, several construction and infrastructure sites around the world, which are key commercial locations for cranes, have been shut down. However, because mining activities were designated important and continued to operate throughout the lockdown in some areas, the commercial possibility for mobile cranes was preserved.

Market Growth Factors:

Rising demand for renewable energy resources

There is an increasing demand for renewable energy sources due to the rising focus on sustainable development. For generating wind, solar and thermal energy, several machines are being utilized, and mobile crane is one of them. Few machines can match the efficiency and safety of mobile cranes when it comes to installing wind turbines for wind farms. A mobile crane is appropriate for such project site, whether farmers are carrying rail siding or other key components.

Reduction in the overall cost along with less time for setup

Since mobile cranes can be utilised for a number of tasks, a user won't need to hire a different crane for each task. Because of the adaptability of mobile cranes, companies may save money by using one crane for all components of the project. This not only helps in keeping everything under budget, but it also saves more time because companies won't have to wait for each piece of equipment to arrive before it can get started. Larger cranes may also require specialised permits to operate, resulting in increased costs for any project.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Lack of properly trained workers

The majority of injuries, fatalities, and accidents on the job site are due to a lack of crane operator training. Because these cranes may come into touch with electric lines by mistake, it is critical to obtain clearances from the electrical lines as well as verifiable sources such as government electrical safety directives. Due to a lack of understanding of load indicating devices, technological developments are hampered, resulting in an increase in accidents caused by falling loads.

Mobile Cranes Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2020

Product Type Outlook

On the basis of product type, the mobile crane market is segmented into Truck Mounted Crane, Trailer Mounted Crane and Crawler Crane. The crawler crane segment is anticipated to register a promising growth rate over the forecast period. Crawler cranes are small and easy to use, making them ideal for small building sites, particularly in urban settings. Crawler cranes are the most powerful cranes for usage in large-scale building projects involving big industrial items.

Application Outlook

Based on application, the mobile cranes market is divided into Construction, Industrial and Utility. In 2020, the construction segment procured the maximum revenue share in the mobile cranes market and is expected to maintain this dominance during the forecast period. It is due to ongoing residential and commercial infrastructure projects around the world. Once placed, tower cranes cannot be moved until the project is finished. As a result, builders who work on a variety of projects often favour mobile cranes since they are portable.
