Selbyville, Delaware, Aug. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

The construction equipment rental market revenue is anticipated to record a valuation of USD 150 billion by 2027, according to the most recent study by Global Market Insights Inc. Considerable rise in the number of infrastructure development projects and construction of public infrastructure has created a huge demand for rental construction equipment in the past few years. The rising product demand, in conjunction with the rising government investments, is expected to transform construction equipment rental market space. Citing an instance, the UK government declared enormous funding of USD 692 million towards the annual repair and maintenance of existing roads in the country.

The industry growth was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic due to delayed construction activities as a result of lockdown restrictions globally. Besides, the disruption of logistics & supply chain and shortage of raw labor and materials negatively influenced the product demand. However, with the gradual lifting of restrictions and restoration of company operations, the industry will grow steadily over the coming years.

With regards to the prospects of the construction equipment rental industry growth in the coming years, some key trends impacting market value are as follows:

Strategic initiatives by major market participants

Numerous eminent players active in construction equipment rental market are emphasizing on strategic efforts like partnerships and acquisitions to expand their fleet size and enhance their rental fleet through technological advancements. Quoting an instance, in 2021, one of the leading market players in Middle East region, AI Faris Group announced the launch of Liebherr mobile cranes with a lifting capacity in the range of 110 tons to 500 tons. The company also launched Liebherr LR 1500, the crawler crane. Apparently, the product launch will help the company gain a competitive edge in the industry.

Growing popularity of electric construction equipment

The emerging trend of electric construction equipment, driven by the growing awareness regarding vehicular emission, is the major factor favoring the industry growth. Companies are now focusing on the reduction of their carbon footprint by introducing novel electric construction equipment.

The latter’s battery system will feature fast charging technology and high energy density.

Burgeoning demand for material handling & cranes

The growing adoption of material handling equipment and cranes can be ascribed to the mounting demand for loading, unloading and lifting materials on the construction site. In addition, stringent labor norms pertaining to workers’ safety in industrial facilities are further impelling the product demand. Incorporation of technologies, such as anti-collision devices, safe load indicators and angle sensors to improve the safety of operators and enhancing the machine efficiency is further supporting the growth of material handling & cranes segment.
