Regional Analysis

Geographic analysis of the global tunnel boring machine market spans across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.

Asia-Pacific is the largest tunnel boring machine market and is likely to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. India and China are likely to be one of the largest countries in Asia-Pacific owing to the increased tunnel projects across the countries. Adding to it, growing government expenditure on infrastructure and rapidly increasing rail and road network expansions in countries in the region are likely to drive the regional market. It has been observed that India, South Korea, and China have some of the largest tunnel roads in the world, thereby resulting in wide adoption of boring machines in the region.

The tunnel machines in Europe, particularly in London, have dug the Lee and Thames Tideway tunnels that have improved sewage treatment for larger areas in London. Crossrail has used almost eight TBMs to build new rail tunnels in London. These machines have weaved the sub-terrain and between the existing tube network, utilities, sewers, and even hidden rivers in London at a depth of up to 50 meters.
