The global crawler cranes market is set to experience a CAGR of 6% from 2021 to 2031, reaching US$7bn by the end of the forecast period, according to a market intelligence reports by Fact.MR
Short-term outlook also appears promising, with an expected growth rate of 7% until 2024. As of 2021, the market is likely to be valued at US$4bn.
From 2016 to 2020, crawler cranes sales surged at a CAGR of around 5%, closing in at US$3.8bn by the end of the said historical period. Prospects appeared to decline significantly amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, attributed to recessionary trends unfurling across the global construction and infrastructure industry. By Q4 2020, prospects appeared to rebound as restrictions lifted.
As per the report, manufacturers are capitalising on the ever broadening reliance on alternative energy resources. The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) establishes that in 2017, nearly 60% of energy demand was sourced from modern renewables, including biomass, geothermal, wind, solar, hydro and biofuels.
