Sales Analysis of Graders (2017-2021) in Comparison to Market Growth Forecasts (2022-2032)
Graders are construction machines used to create flat surfaces and set pads for soil foundation before the construction of buildings. High number of infrastructure projects comprising construction of rail, roads, shopping centers, and commercial & residential complexes underway across countries is leading to enhanced demand for graders.
Manufacturers in the global graders market are focusing on providing advanced graders with added features such as large engines, anti-bounce systems, precise control technology, etc., which can help operators produce better results with minimum efforts.
They are also focusing on ease of operation, operator comfort, enhanced productivity with better outcomes, and at the same time, aiming to minimize costs.
- Short-run (2022 Q2 to 2025): Rising infrastructural and construction projects across will lead to enhanced demand for graders in the short term.
- Medium-run (2025-2028): In the medium term, demand is anticipated to grow due to the provision of advanced graders that are able to match the need of users in several applications, from construction to road maintenance.
- Long-run (2028-2032): The market is anticipated to witness moderate growth in the long term because of economies witnessing advancements in transportation infrastructure.
Fact.MR projects the graders market to exhibit growth at 2.7% CAGR during 2022 and 2032 in comparison to the CAGR of 1.6% from 2017 and 2021.
Image depicts market share analysis by base power, application, and region. Under base power, the above 200 HP segment dominated the market with 57.3% share in 2021.
Why is Demand for Graders Increasing Steadily?
“Increasing Road Infrastructural Development to Fuel Demand for Graders”
Transportation infrastructure plays an integral part in economic development as it controls exports and imports, thereby changing the appearance of developed and developing countries. Big infrastructural projects for the construction of railways, roads, ports, and bridges are in progress in developing countries to strengthen the backbone of transportation.
Graders are used extensively in road construction activities to make flat surfaces in the grading process before asphalt application. Furthermore, the availability of different sizes of grader blades allows the progression of construction work smoothly on even smaller roads.
These factors are likely to enhance grader demand by ~1/4 of current levels by the end of 2032.
“Versatility & Advancement in Grader Machines Driving Market Growth”
Several countries are focusing on developing new infrastructure or upgrading existing infrastructure. Graders are extremely beneficial to repair ditches formed between roads without blocking traffic.
Small optimized graders have smaller turning radiuses, enabling easy maneuvering in confined spaces, coupled with enabling easy logistics. In addition to this, advanced graders work with enhanced speed and efficiency, and are useful for road maintenance in crowded places.
This versatility and advancement in grader machines is likely to drive graders market growth by 1.2X over the assessment period.

Will Manufacturers of Graders Face Any Obstacles?
“Availability of Other Alternatives and High Equipment Cost to Hamper Market Expansion”
Graders have now become more efficient with developments in design and implementation of technology. However, there has been an increase in initial equipment and maintenance costs.
Also, the presence of other alternatives such as wheel loaders, which are equipped with grade blade attachments and come with low purchase and operating costs as compared to motor grader, can dent market expansion.
Consumers are easily attracted towards less costly alternatives, which is likely to hamper the sales of graders by 0.6X during the forecast years.
Why are North America & Europe Prominent Markets for Graders?
The North America graders market accounts for the largest market share of 26.8% and is poised to register 2.7% CAGR during the forecast years.
The Europe graders market holds 23.1% market share and is projected to expand at 2.9% CAGR through 2032.
Rise in construction and infrastructural activities and steady growth in mining activities are driving the use of graders in the regions. Along with this, graders are also used for snow removal in both, residential and municipal spaces in these regions, thereby supporting demand growth for the future years.
Will Rising Construction Activities in Asia Pacific Benefit Grader manufacturers?
With all regions combined, the Asia Pacific graders market holds 42.1% market share. The East Asia and South Asia & Oceania graders market is expected to expand at 3.2% and 3.6% CAGRs, respectively, over the decade.
Infrastructural activities in Asia Pacific are rising, especially in emerging economies such as India and China, with high availability of raw materials, enhanced investments, easy implementation of technology, etc.
Augmented construction of highways, roads, bridges, and ports is paving the way for infrastructural transformation. On the back of rising infrastructure industry, sales of graders are set to rise steadily over the decade.
