Heavy Machine Industry Insights: Hydraulic Excavators
The markets for excavators are segregated into various categories based on not just the application of the excavator, but also the size, type and even regulations and protocols. Nevertheless, general market research has revealed an astounding development between 2015 and 2025 despite the current pandemic situation brought about by COVID 19. The industry market did take a turn downward in mid-2020, but has since been slowly progressing upwards resulting in an increase in sales of these essential heavy machines. Sales volumes on almost all types of excavators ranging from the Mini Excavator (below 6t) and Small Excavator (6.1-15t) categories, right up to the Medium-sized Excavator (15.1-30t) and even Large-sized Excavator (above 30t) have been increasing gradually since the 3rd quarter of 2020. The breakdown according to application of industries (market segments) such as general purpose, mining, marine and specific or unique purpose excavator differ according to regions and countries based on the pre and post COVID development plans. Regional analysis reveals that the sales growth of the global excavator market varies significantly according to different regional and country-level Excavators markets for the forecast period 2015 to 2025. For instance the global excavators market expanded to US$ 44.12 billion in 2018 and although it contracted towards the end of 2019 and 2020 slightly, the market is still anticipated to pass the US$ 63billion mark by 2025.
Some of the factors that have been identified as specific drivers for the market as reported by fortune business insights included the current ‘heavy shift’ from traditional hydraulic excavators to automated ones which increase the efficiency of projects and are cost effective. Newly developed businesses that have become a part of the value chain through excavators for hire have also been seen as primary business drivers by industry players. The fastest growing segment based on a report from the times indicated that the fastest growing segment currently is the mini excavator market as urban development is rapidly progressing in countries such as India and China and Asia Pacific. Just prior to the COVID 19 Pandemic the excavator market in 2018 the excavator market expanded to more than 17 Billion dollars and held steady during the pandemic. North America during the same time frame also grew and surpassed the 9 Billion dollars mark. The Middle East was spotted as the industry’s ‘mainstay’ due to the unceasing developments that were carried out even during the height of the pandemic.
Although, some of these reports contradict figures, what is clear is the fact that these reports all indicate and project growth. The gist of the matter that may be extracted from these reports is that the construction industry has been resilient from the get-go of the pandemic and although it slowed down due to movement order controls towards the 3rd quarter of 2020, projects did not cease, they continued at a much slower rate and seems to have picked up by the end of 2020 and the industry is expected to be at full swing by the end of 2021.
