What’s Driving High Demand for Asphalt Paver across Regions?

Developments in Road Infrastructures to Gain the Demand for Asphalt Paver

Transportation infrastructure plays an important role in development of economies as it primarily controls imports and exports sector of every market. Global transformation of infrastructure industry is changing the appearance of developed as well as developing countries. In developing countries, big infrastructure projects are in progress, notably for the construction of roads, railways, bridges, and ports, with the aim to strengthen the transportation backbone.

Asphalt paver are extensively utilized in road construction activities for making the paved surface, compact & improve the density along with the application of asphalt. Availability of different types of asphalt paver enable construction work to progress smoothly even on smaller roads of developing countries. Thus, developments in road infrastructure are likely to increase the demand for asphalt paver, notably in developing countries.

Growing Demand for Energy-efficient Construction Equipment

Construction companies across the globe are increasingly focusing on sustainable development of projects for acquiring certifications apropos to energy efficiency. As these certifications need construction industries to reduce their pollution and emission footprint during the overall project lifecycle, manufacturers are shifting their focus toward the development of user-friendly, energy-efficient, and low-emission construction equipment, and to this, asphalt paver are no exception.

Key manufacturers are introducing upgraded asphalt paver models with extended variety of features for end-users along with a high performance level. Construction equipment manufacturers are increasingly taking efforts for developing energy-efficient asphalt paver ideal for multiple tasks such as road construction, dam construction, residential construction & land maintenance.

What Do Asphalt Paver Manufacturers Need to Watch Out for?

High Cost of Maintenance and Lack of Skilled Labour to Hinder Adoption” 

Design of asphalt paver has continuously evolved with changing consumer requirements. However, improving equipment design requires heavy investments, which leads to greater expenditure, making the equipment more expensive. Therefore, manufacturers face the challenge of making their product cost-effective while improving efficiency and productivity.

At the same time, technologically advanced in asphalt paver with wider ranges of electronic features require professional operators who need to be adequately trained. Inappropriate handling may lead to severe accidents. Operational and safety programs are mandatory for operators. Lack of skilled operators to operate such equipment is hampering their adoption, particularly in developing countries

Country-wise Insights

How China can drive the Demand for Asphalt Paver market?

Why is Growth of Track Paver Being Highly lucrative in Asphalt Paver market?

Compact track pavers hold the biggest market share in the market for asphalt paver and are the most popular category. Due to their grip and resilience, tracked pavers are typically preferable over wheels on softer ground. These devices provide more stability and can typically turn in a smaller space than a wheeled paver. Because their weight is dispersed over a wider area and less likely to damage the base, track pavers perform best in subbase situations.

The truck has a tendency to push away when mix is thrown back at an angle into the paver's hopper, so the driver must apply braking pressure to maintain engagement. With a track paver, the truck's weight and the material's weight are all supported by the tracks. Automation in construction machinery is becoming more widely used, which has increased demand for high-tech attachment tools that save operating costs and improve worker safety.

Owing to the above facts, the compact track paver sub-segment of the asphalt paver market is predicted to grow at a value of US$ 933.0 million by the end of 2022.

What is the Market scope for Hydrostatic Screed Technology in Asphalt Screed Technology Segment?

Hydrostatic screed has greater demand in the market due its prominent features involved. The hydrostatic screed paver has a number of characteristics that promote efficiency, quality, and ease of use. Among them are a hydraulically extendible screed with vibration and tamping, premium feature sensors, fingertip controls and a swinging console. Greater stability on challenging terrain is provided by double axle designs, which exhibit zero flex even at the widest pavement width.

The hydrostatic screed technology segment dominated the market in terms of value in 2021. With a historical CAGR of 3.3%, and projected value by 2032 is US$ 1,282.4 million the hydrostatic screed sector will capture almost 70% of the asphalt paver market.
