Crawler Excavator Market Synopsis


Crawler Excavator Market size was USD 32.0 Billion in 2018 and is expected to witness 4.6% CAGR during the forecast period.


The Global Crawler Excavator Market is expected to witness significant growth in the next few years due to the growing demand for government support for the construction and growth of the mining industry, mainly in the emerging economies such as China, Japan, and South Korea. Governments, across all regions, are promoting infrastructure development. The developing nations are particularly bringing various reforms and regulations to boost their infrastructure and real estate. Such reforms are expected to augment the growth of the crawler excavators market due to the growth of the construction sector. Moreover, with the growing population, the mining industry is expected to grow rapidly in the upcoming years due to an increase in demand for minerals, metals, and other materials. Thus, the impact of the growth of the mining industry is anticipated to enhance the demand for crawler excavators in the global market.


The high number of construction projects across the globe creates a high demand for skilled workers. Globally, the demand has outstripped supply, leading to the reduced availability of workers. The lack of skilled labor increases the contractor’s risk by increasing the likelihood of delay. Hence, the impact of lack of skilled labor on the demand crawler excavator industry is expected to shift from high to moderate during the forecast period. Furthermore, the growing demand for crawler excavator rental creates opportunities for the construction equipment manufacturers operating in the crawler excavators market.
