Key Drivers Stimulating Construction Equipment Rental Industry Expansion

Frequent Economic Cycle Fluctuations Stimulate the Construction Equipment Rental Services-Demand

In today's economic system, the benefits of leasing power generation equipment are magnified, taking into account the cyclicality of developing industries. According to BigRentz, contractors and construction companies have shifted from purchasing new equipment to renting the same across manufacturing sites.

Anticipating a prolonged recession in response to the pandemic crisis, many economists and business leaders believe that demand for rental services and equipment leasing will surge manifold. Purchasing new equipment will incur a variety of costs- encompassing ownership, purchase price, and maintenance and repair, which may add to their overheads, thus slowing down recovery prospects.

In addition to this cost factor, cyclical and economic fluctuations in the construction industry make it difficult for companies to make full use of the equipment they purchase and obtain the maximum value possible, especially when the equipment is idle in a slow business state. In this case, leasing is an attractive option, especially when some companies are preparing for the potential impact of economic recession and stunted operations.

Key Challenges to Construction Equipment Rental Industry Expansion

Economic Downturn to Impede Growth of Construction Equipment Rental Industry

The construction industry is vulnerable to recession and economic downturn. The construction machinery leasing market is affected by the economic cycle of an economy, which has experienced multiple economic cycles in its life cycle and exhibits high or low economic activity in the economy.

Economic transformation can be divided into cyclical phases of expansion, recession, bottoming out, and recovery. In the context of economic expansion, the construction industry has also shown strong growth, as the construction equipment leasing, and profitability have increased exponentially.

This growth is due to strong consumer demand and easy access to public and private investment or the construction industry is suffering from an economic recession due to a reduction in final output due to tightening consumer demand. The resulting decline in construction activities in turn has an impact on the construction machinery rental market.
