Market Dynamics


Drivers


The increasing investments in infrastructure development and modernization of the agricultural sector are driving the growth of the global heavy-duty telehandler market. Telehandlers are increasingly being used in the construction of medium-height buildings for lifting and moving heavy construction materials. They are more versatile than cranes as they not only perform lifting operations but can also aid in the horizontal movement of goods. Similarly, these machines are finding application in the mining industry for their greater maneuverability and good load-bearing capacity.


Telehandlers are emerging as a necessary machine in modern agriculture farms. Their compact size and availability of attachment sites for different kinds of lifts make them suitable for assisting in different agricultural activities. Moreover, rapid technological and structural advancements in telehandlers will expand its market in other various industries too. 


Technology Analysis


Heavy Duty telehandlers, also known as telescopic handlers or zoom booms, are lifting machines that find use in construction, industrial and agricultural operations. It has a forklift for lifting purposes but in a large telescopic boom distinguishing it from both a crane and a forklift. Telehandlers have higher efficiency due to the dual capability of forwarding and upward movement. Moreover, the booms also allow the attachment of different lifters such as buckets, winch, pallets, forks, etc.


Telehandlers find use in different activities like material handling and elevated positioning.  In farms, heavy-duty telehandlers are used for lifting bales, hay stacking, moving products, etc. These machines also find great use in the construction and mining industry. They are more economical and versatile than cranes and overcome the limits of forklifts due to the presence of a long hydraulic boom.
