Industry Insights, Market Size, CAGR, High-Level Analysis: Construction Equipment Rental Market

The global construction equipment rental market size was valued at USD 92.9 billion in 2019 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.9% over the forecast period. The surge in the construction and mining activities, mostly in the developing countries is the key factor driving the market for construction equipment rental. The emergence of new technologies including digital services for automated service improvements, equipment service tracking, and mapping features has been an ongoing trend within the market. The adoption rates of construction equipment are increasing in the rental services owing to the technological enhancements provided by the original equipment manufacturers. Technological advancements in automotive and heavy machinery sectors has brought many new features to the market for construction equipment rental. Construction equipment manufacturers are not only focusing on incorporating advanced safety features such as lift assist, 360-degree camera visual, and additional work lights, but are also focused towards providing systems that improve the operational efficiency and require lesser maintenance. However, these features come at a high price, which is not affordable to many small builders and contractors. Thus, these professionals prefer rental construction machinery. Renting construction equipment not only saves the cost of buying new equipment but reduces the incurrence of expenses such as labor cost, maintenance cost, and operational costs. The cost of timely maintenance, repair, and checking is also avoided. Construction equipment rental companies perform all these tasks regularly, to gain long-term profit from the machinery. These companies are now also focusing on providing onsite services and support for equipment, which further enhances customer experience. Companies such as Caterpillar Inc. offer quick response teams to help customers at remote locations through mobile servicing vans. Procurement of new construction equipment often requires high down payments and investing a large portion of capital from the operating expenses of the company. Interest on loans, insurance cost, licensing cost, storage cost, and taxes are the overhead costs involved post purchase of the construction equipment. Equipment owners are also accountable for transportation between job sites. On the other hand, if the company procures the equipment on a rental basis, the responsibility of providing the equipment to new work sites is with the provider and the company using it does not bear the direct overhead cost. Furthermore, the rental companies often upgrade their fleet of equipment and machineries on regular basis, providing its customers with upgraded and most advanced equipment.

Product Insights of Construction Equipment Rental Market

The construction equipment rental market can be segmented on the basis of product into earthmoving machinery, material handling machinery, and concrete and road construction machinery. The earthmoving machinery segment dominated the market for construction equipment rental in 2019. However, the concrete and road construction machinery segment is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR of 6.1% from 2020 to 2027. Earthmoving machinery such as excavators enjoy enormous demand around the world as it has a wide application scope in construction, mining, and agriculture sectors. Other equipment in this category are skid-steer loaders, backhoe loaders, crawler excavators, and mini excavators, which also present attractive market potential. These have high load capacity and engine power, which enable them to work efficiently in harsh conditions. The material handling machinery segment comprises crawler cranes, trailer-mounted cranes, and truck-mounted cranes. Growing construction of skyscrapers and mega infrastructure projects are anticipated to boost demand for these types of machinery on rental basis. Truck-mounted cranes holds the majority of shares in the market for construction equipment rental owing to easy mobility. They are used for construction of buildings, bridges, and dams. On the other hand, traditional crawler cranes are witnessing a steep fall in demand since the last decade. Crawler cranes are difficult to be carried on long distances and they need to be loaded on to other vehicles for transportation. These cranes also have lower material handling capacity. Demand for concrete and road construction machinery on rental basis is anticipated to grow over the forecast period. Roads are considered as an indicator of a countrys overall development as better road connectivity aids in improved trade and economic growth. Thus, many developing countries such as China and India are focusing on developing better road connectivity. For instance, Chinas ambitious One Belt, One Road initiative will connect China with European countries. Similarly, the government of Indias Bharatmala project focuses on connecting all prominent cities in the country with a single road. Such projects are boosting demand for concrete and road construction machinery around the world. Demand for concrete mixer trucks on rental basis is rising owing to increased construction projects globally. Construction pumps are anticipated to gain significant market share, especially in Middle East and Africa, wherein the trend of building massive infrastructures is high.

Regional Insights of Construction Equipment Rental Market

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR of 6.1% from 2020 to 2027 and is likely to continue the dominance in terms of both usage and manufacturing over the forecast period.
