The global construction equipment market is anticipated to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.

Construction equipment, also known as heavy equipment, are specially designed machineries used in construction activities for different functions such as transferring heavy loads, grading, dozing, drilling, hauling, excavating, paving, compacting, and leveling. These equipment possess good mechanical strength & durability and aid in reducing the dependence on human labor and in saving a lot of time and effort.

Some of the most common construction equipment include ditchers, bulldozers, pumps, graders, tractors, excavators, trenchers, cranes, derricks, loaders, and backhoes.

Growth Drivers:

Factors such as the growing number of end-use applications for construction equipment; the rising investments in urban infrastructure and industrial development projects; the increasing infrastructural development, especially in the emerging economies; the soaring demand for strong residential and commercial infrastructure; the growing automation in construction processes due to dearth of skilled labor and surging focus on minimizing the overall cost and time for project completion; the rising population migration toward urban areas globally; the escalating investments in refurbishment and maintenance activities across the globe are primarily driving the growth of the global construction equipment market.

Additionally, the number of strategic partnerships between market players present in the construction equipment market is rising, mainly to develop technologically advanced equipment and solutions and roll them out in the market for various applications. Alongside, the demand for construction equipment is also growing from the smart construction sector. In view of this, in April 2021, Komatsu Ltd. entered into a partnership with Nomura Research Institute, Sony Semiconductor Solutions and NTT Docomo to launch Earthbrain Ltd., which will assist in the development of new smart construction equipment solutions and services. These developments and the increasing number of partnerships are projected to bolster the growth of the global construction equipment market in the next few years.

Moreover, the ever-increasing global population coupled with the rapidly augmenting urbanization across the world is raising the demand for building new infrastructure such as residential and commercial. This leads to an enhanced emphasis on public–private partnerships (PPP), i.e. joint ventures between government and private sector companies to construct public infrastructure systems. The escalating number of public-private partnerships in different countries such as India, Africa, and China are estimated to fuel the growth of the global construction equipment market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, other factors such as the proliferating trend of construction equipment rental services; the advent of new technologies for construction machinery, the growing worker safety concerns on construction sites; the increasing number of mining projects and smart city development across regions, and the increasing focus of players on enhancing the fuel consumption of construction equipment are further expected to create ample growth opportunities for the growth of the global construction equipment market during the forecast period.

However, factors such as the high cost associated with construction equipment, the increasing prices of machine oil; the growing environmental imbalance owing to the rising use of construction equipment, and the dearth of competent & skilled operators are expected to hamper the growth of the market to some extent during the forecast period.

Based on equipment, the wheeled loader > 80HP segment accounted for the largest share of the global construction equipment market in 2021. The segment is expected to retain its dominance further during the forecast period due to the high application of these equipment in large-scale infrastructure projects to load/unload & bulk material movement and the growing number of roadways and residential buildings, especially across the emerging economies.


Based on power output, the 101-200HP segment acquired the largest global construction equipment market share in 2021. The trend is expected to continue over the forecast period owing to the capacity of machines with this power output to enhance machine capability and downsize the engine to one of lower displacement, thereby decreasing maintenance costs and enhanced fuel economy and component layout.


Based on equipment category, the earthmoving equipment segment captured the largest share of the global construction equipment market in 2021. The segment is estimated to continue further with its dominance in the market throughout the forecast period. The rising urban population in tandem with the increasing demand for better infrastructure facilities is majorly attributable to this particular segment's growth.


Based on end-user, the construction & infrastructure segment led the market in 2021 and is anticipated to further continue doing the same over the forecast period.


Regional Outlook:

The Asia Pacific region held the commanding position in the global construction equipment market in 2021. The region’s position is predicted to remain unchanged over the forecast period due to the burgeoning application of construction equipment by different end-user verticals; the expanding buildings and construction industry; the escalating investments by the government in infrastructure development; the growing construction spending, and the surging population base in the region. China, followed by India, is the major contributor to the growth of the market in the region.


The North American region is slated to witness the highest growth in the global construction equipment market during the forecast period. The growth of the market in the region can be ascribed to the rapidly expanding construction sector in the region; the increasing initiatives by governments for infrastructural development in the region, and the growing investments by companies offering construction equipment present in the region. The U.S. and Canada are the major contributors to the growth of the market in the region.
