Revenue Analysis for Crawler Cranes 2016-2020 Vs Outlook for 2021-2031

According to Fact.MR, market research and competitive intelligence provider, from 2016 to 2020, the global market for crawler cranes has grown at a CAGR exceeding 5%, reaching US$ 3.8 Bn by the end of the said historical period.

Crawler Cranes are used in various applications such as commercial, industrial, infrastructural, and residential construction. Prospects dipped significantly amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, given the lull in the global construction sector experienced due to the imposition of stringent lockdowns. According to a study published in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series, countries such as India and the U.S experienced a contraction of 23.9% and 4.8% respectively in their GDPs in 2021 and 2020 respectively due to cessation of construction activities.

Fortunately, this impact was short-lived, as economies opened up to pave the way for a post-pandemic recovery, thereby restoring crawler crane demand projections to a significant extent. From 2021 to 2031, Fact.MR expects worldwide demand for crawler cranes to expand at a CAGR exceeding 6%.

How are Crawler Cranes Enhancing Energy Efficiency in Lifting Operations?

Mounting environmental sustainability concerns are prompting key industries to opt for energy efficient solutions. Therefore, demand for battery-powered crawler cranes has increased substantially in the past few years. Additionally, conventional crawler cranes running on fossil fuels are also incorporating energy saving solutions to ensure optimum workflow.

For instance, Kobelco Cranes Co. Ltd. offer cranes which have been conditioned to reducing power consumption during no-load operations. Minimizing the running torque decreases the amount of energy expended during lightweight lifting operations. Likewise, Liebherr offers highly energy efficient cranes for the cargo handling industry, which can be equipped with electric drives to reduce emissions.

How is Rising Dependence on Renewable Energy Spurring Crawler Cranes Uptake?

As concerns regarding noxious emissions from conventional fossil fuel sources mount, governments across the world are reorienting their energy consumption requirements, preferring alternative sources including solar, hydel and wind power. Consequently, deployment of crawler cranes across this sector has increased.

Since the dawn of the 21st century, green energy has acquired center stage. This requirement is being fulfilled by Liebherr, which manufactures crawler cranes for onshore installations of wind turbines across difficult terrain such as mountains and other elevated surfaces.

For instance, in 2016, the company deployed its LR 11350 crawler crane while erecting a large near-shore wind farm at Lake IJessel in the north of the Netherlands. The crawler crane erected the complete "Westermeerwind" wind farm from a massive jack-up platform.

Telescopic cranes have been widely adopted on the market for their ease of transferring objects. In terms of ports, they provide one of the best services. Due to their ability to adjust heights according to circumstances, these cranes are widely used by firms and are widely used in rescue operations. Fact.MR expects the market for crawler cranes to surge at a rate of 7% until 2031.

Why is Construction the Dominant End Use Industry for Crawler Cranes?

The market for construction cranes will be driven in the long run by fast-emerging requirements for versatile lifting in the residential and industrial construction sectors. The industry is adopting a variety of improvements to its product line as a result of the growing demand for crawler cranes in the market.

While international crane manufacturers plan to introduce high-capacity cranes to various regions in the future on an equal basis with those currently sold on global markets. The trend toward multistory buildings in growing metropolitan areas is driving a rise in demand for crawler cranes globally. Fact.MR expects crawler cranes demand in the construction industry to account for 60% of the overall market.

Competitive Landscape

Strategic collaborations enable manufacturers to increase production and meet consumer demand which will increase revenue and market share. New products and technologies will enable end-users to benefit from products that are eco-friendly by nature.

  • On August 19, 2021, Manitowoc acquired the assets of Aspen Equipment, a crane distributor and truck manufacturer based in Bloomington, Minnesota, for $51 million. It is anticipated that the acquisition will be completed by September. Upon closing of this acquisition, Manitowoc will be able to provide direct service and sales to end-users and rental companies in Nebraska and Minnesota.
  • On August 25th, 20201, Tadano Group unveiled the GTC-1600, a 160 tons tele-boom crawler crane. Tadano's GTC-1600 fills a gap in the market for telescopic boom crawlers with a 160-ton capacity and the main boom that can reach more than 200 feet.
