The forestry equipment is the machinery used for the excavating, harvesting, and finishing of a wooded area. The forestry equipment aid in the process of logging. The forestry equipment helps in clearing the forest for replanting the trees, beginning the construction, and other applications. The market is dominated by the availability of several different types of forestry equipment such as excavating machines comprising the saws used to bring down a tree, harvesting equipment comprised the series of bunchers, loaders, and harvesters and finishing machines. The global forestry equipment market valued USD XX million in 2018 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million by 2026.
The market is driven by the increasing demand for forestry equipment for the wildland fire management and wildlife & sanctuary management for ecosystem preservation in several countries. There is rising usage of the forestry equipment for vegetation management and land clearing applications for transportation infrastructure development. The forestry equipment is widely used for clearing unwanted vegetation.
There is an increase in the launch of the forestry equipment. For instance, in January 2020, Tigercat had launched the highly anticipated 850 roadside processor. The Tigercat 850 processor is a purpose-built roadside processor delivering outstanding performance and impressive fuel economy. It is designed for high volume roadside processing. The Tigercat 850 provides several advantages over excavator conversions such as better service access, higher cooling capacity, and processor head optimized hydraulics. The Tigercat FPT N67 engine delivers 159 kW (213 hp) at 2,100 rpm for Tier 2 and Tier 4f emission compliance.
In May 2019, Logset had launched a new smaller hybrid harvester i.e., the Logset 8H GTE Hybrid. This new hybrid harvester model has an AGCO Power 74 LFTN diesel engine that conforms to Stage 5 EU emission regulations. It's hybrid system's two main parts are the electric motor and the supercapacitors used as energy storage. The hybrid system provides up to 100 kW of additional power. The hybrid harvester reaches higher productivity through a faster torque response, which allows the machine to easily perform several tasks at the same time.
The market is witnessing technological advancement with artificial intelligence, digital applications, and other technologies. For instance, in February 2019, Enview had launched artificial intelligence (AI)-powered solution to automatically detect vegetation near power lines.
In July 2017, Tigercat had launched the RemoteLog, a new telematics system from Tigercat for data that matters. RemoteLog is a valuable new tool for loggers to optimize productivity and minimize downtime by having data that matters right at your fingertips. RemoteLog could connect the forestry operation from almost anywhere by using the tablet or computer, and the Internet. RemoteLog is a complete telematics system for machine monitoring and fleet management. It is an easy-to-use web portal that provides important performance and service information in near-real-time.
The global forestry equipment market is segmented based on the product type as the felling equipment, extracting equipment, on-site processing equipment, and other forestry equipment. The felling equipment accounts for the highest market share of XX% in 2019. The felling equipment comprised of the chainsaw, harvester, and feller buncher. There is an increasing demand for the Chainsaws due to the rising tinder harvesting activities. The market is witnessing the development of the cordless & battery-powered chainsaws for horticulture maintenance and firewood fragmentation. Feller buncher is the type of harvester used for logging. It is a motorized vehicle with an attachment to gather and cut the tree before felling it. Feller buncher is a self-propelled machine with a cutting head that is capable of holding more than one stem at a time. Its cutting head is used for the cutting, holding, and placing the stems on the ground. The feller bunchers comprised of the self-leveling cabs to extend the slope on which they can operate. Feller buncher is propelled by either wheels or track machines. The tracked feller bunchers are slower in comparison to the wheeled machines. The feller bunchers do not have the processing capabilities. Tracked feller bunchers are also capable of operating on wet and loose soils. The market is dominated by the availability of several feller bunchers. For instance, John Deere's L-II Series Wheeled Feller Bunchers are easy to incorporate a simplified and to maintain the design. It has a gross power of 157 kW (211 hp), gross torque of 923 Nm (680 ft. - lb.), Wheelbase of 3,023 mm (119 in.), and an operating weight of 13,910 kg (30,704 lb.). It has an optimal weight distribution and a long wheelbase combine to maximize stability. It comprised of the durable heavy-duty axles that deliver the stability and hill-climbing power under the toughest forest conditions.
By region, the global forestry equipment market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, Europe dominated the global forestry equipment market and expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period due to high adoption of the several forestry equipment such as slashers, delimbers, grinders, chippers, and others. There is growing adoption of the automation technologies and mechanization methods for driving the need for loaders, harvesters, and forwarders. There is increasing usage of the wood pellets as power plant feedstock. The market is witnessing the transformation of the forestry equipment with the internet of things integrated solutions and cloud computing solutions. There is the presence of several companies developing forestry equipment. Several market players are raising the investment for the research & development activities for advanced forestry equipment for increasing the productivity and efficiency in various forestry operations. Companies are developing forestry machines with the high efficiency of cutting around 100 logs per hour. There is a growing government initiative by the government for encouraging forestry activities. The government has initiated awareness programs for forest management
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to have positive market growth over the forecasted period due to the growing demand for mechanized techniques of forest cutting. There is an increasing need for wood and wood-based products that have resulted in the need for mechanized felling of trees. There is a growing deployment of harvesters for forest operations and farm efficiency. The increasing incidences of rehabilitation and up-gradation of forests shall stimulate market growth. Several market players are focusing on the development of technologically advanced forestry equipment. The companies are developing the forestry equipment that is more efficient, safer, cleaner running, and have lower site impacts. There is growing awareness regarding forest management, environmental sustainability, and preservation.
The global forestry equipment market is highly competitive with the presence of several international and local markets. Product diversification, revenue generation, and opportunities intensify the market competition. Caterpillar, Deere & Company, Doosan Infracore Co.
