Undercarriage Components Market Insights
The undercarriage components market is poised to expand 1.4X in terms of value over the forecast period. However, the COVID-19 outbreak is having a negative impact on the global undercarriage components market due to the closure of manufacturing plants in various countries. Moreover, this has also impacted the demand for construction equipment, significantly, which will result in a drop in demand for undercarriage components in the near-term forecast.
However, manufacturers are optimistic that recovery in demand for construction equipment such as crawler excavators, dozers, compact track loaders, and crawler cranes is anticipated to trigger the use of undercarriage components, consequently leading to the expansion of the undercarriage components market size in the years ahead.
Undercarriage Components Market Trends
Commercial infrastructure is expected to witness significant growth on the back of increasing infrastructure activities and urbanization. Rising construction projects such as expansion of airports, construction of commercial buildings, growing highway constructions, road extensions, and residential projects have further pushed the demand for heavy machinery, in turn, reinforcing the demand for undercarriage components during the period of assessment.
Rising demand for undercarriage components in the construction and mining industry has influenced manufacturers to develop advanced products. Technological advances in the manufacturing and design of undercarriage components have enhanced their durability and efficiency.
However, this has resulted in an increase in the pricing of undercarriage components, along with high maintenance costs. Against this backdrop, the prevalence of counterfeit undercarriage components has significantly risen, in turn, challenging the growth of the market. Low pricing of counterfeit undercarriage components has resulted in a substantial surge in their sales.
However, quality concerns associated with counterfeit undercarriage components remain questionable in terms of future adoption. This factor is likely to confine the sales of original undercarriage components, in turn, posing challenges to OEMs and genuine retailers of in the coming years.

Undercarriage Components Market Manufacturer Insights
The undercarriage components market is majorly dominated by Caterpillar Inc., Deere & Company, ThyssenKrupp AG, AB Volvo, Komatsu Ltd., and Hitachi Construction Machinery. However, there is a large number of local and regional players present in the global undercarriage components market. These market players are concentrating on launching new and efficient construction equipment in order to broaden their market footprints in the global construction equipment market, which will improve their market position in the global undercarriage components market.
For instance, in 2020, Caterpillar Inc. launched its new D7 Dozer, which offers high drive undercarriage design, increased performance, and broadest choice of easy-to-use technology features.
D7 moves up to 8 percent more material per hour than D7E, with around 6 percent more weight and 12 percent more horsepower. In 2020, the company introduced a complete set of undercarriage parts for the 200 ton mining excavator PC2000-8. The set includes front idlers, tracks, and carrier rollers, which feature with high wear resistant Boron steel that enables to optimize cost per hour.
COVID-19 Impact on Undercarriage Components Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about several changes for construction equipment manufacturers, and the industry as a whole. Manufacturers have temporarily shut down their plants, and the demand for undercarriage components is witnessing a downturn. The pandemic has also restricted the movement of goods from one place to another leading to disruptions in the supply chain.
Furthermore, the market is continuing to fluctuate as the sales of new equipment have come to a standstill. This is impacting the growth of the market, as undercarriage components sales are contingent to the sales of construction equipment.
Moreover, companies are witnessing a decline in their revenues, which is also affecting production activity due to the high investment nature of the industry. This is likely to negatively impact the sales of new undercarriage components, owing to lower demand for new machines, in turn, limiting the growth of the undercarriage components market. As per the report published by Fact.MR, it is estimated that, the undercarriage components market will start showing positive signs by the second quarter of 2021.
The Analyst’s Viewpoint
“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has hit market players adversely on the supply side, causing declining sales of undercarriage components. However, the recovery of the global construction and mining sector, post pandemic, is foreseen to open new growth avenues for the undercarriage components market.”
