Key Market Trends

Growth of the Oil and Gas Industry in North America is expected to drive the Market

The demand for new cranes used in oil and gas exploration machinery is poised to grow considerably over the forecast period. The oil and gas sector is shifting from established traditional reserves to more expensive and complicated oil and gas resources, such as shale and deep-water projects. Extraction from these non-conventional oil reserves requires a substantial application of sophisticated machinery and equipment, including cranes.

Usage of safe and efficient hauling cranes and tower cranes, primarily designed and constructed for the oil and gas industries, would drive the growth of these particular cranes. There is an expected investment opportunity of more than USD 500 billion for gas and oil distribution upgrades, natural gas storage facilities, gas processing, and for rail investment. The industry is also expected to recover from the declining price trend, as it has been witnessing over the last two years, mainly due to the upturn in the demand-side dynamics of the market.

United States to Witness Significant Growth

Currently, the United States is witnessing more demand mainly due to the government initiatives such as plans to invest in new highways, rail lines, and telecommunication infrastructure, as well as in the modernization of ports. It is expected to see an investment of USD 300 billion in infrastructure through the year 2018. Thus, the increasing construction activities are expected to steer the construction equipment market in the country. The growth is mainly driven by private investment. Owing to the low-interest rates on mortgage loans, increased funding for housing companies, and increased subsidies, the housing construction industry has seen a rebound.

The uncertainty over NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) negotiations and the rise in protectionist tendencies from its northern neighbor is expected to restrain the growth of the construction sector, and consequently the mobile crane market.
