Product Code: 66710
The global construction machinery tires market is expected to register a CAGR of more than 5%, during the forecast period, 2019-2024.
- Increased focus on infrastructure and automation in the construction and manufacturing processes showed a great impact on the construction machinery demand over the past two years (2017-2018), across the world.
- The improving economy and increasing construction activities across developing countries like India, South Africa, etc., are likely to drive a potential demand for construction machinery, and in-turn anticipates to propel a considerable demand for off-the-road tires, majorly from aftermarket segment (that includes rental companies and individual machine owners), during the forecast period.
- The demand for tire retreads has been increasing for these vehicles, as fleet managers/operators continue to leverage retread programs to reduce the operating costs. Retreading saved the heavy commercial vehicle segment to a significant extent, as it is significantly cheaper than a tire replacement. The major players in the market are Michelin, Bridgestone, etc.
Scope of the Report
The global construction machinery tires market has been segmented by tire type, construction machinery type, sales channel type, and geography.
Key Market Trends
Excavators - Witnessing High Demand in Earth Moving Machinery Type
Excavators are typical of two types, namely wheeled excavators and crawler excavators. Among them, crawler excavators covered a major share of more than 50% of the global excavator market in 2018.
- As most of the rental companies purchased a low-cost crawler excavator over high cost wheeled excavators, because former equipment offered high stability during digging operations on rough or uneven terrains, compared to that of wheeled excavators.
However, the operating cost of wheeled excavators have been less compared to that of crawler excavators, as worn out of crawler's undercarriages and it is replacing or refurbishing are an expensive and time-consuming task. Thus, some regions have started adopted usage of wheeled excavators in the construction projects majorly since 2010.
- Europe ranks top in the usage of wheeled excavators compared to the United States. As most of the work done in Europe takes place in urbanized areas while in the United States, work projects included majorly clearing land and digging.
- While, in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, the usage of excavators have been covering more than 55% of the total construction machinery demand during 2015-2017. In the above regions, the majority of the excavators used were crawler-type and very few operations in construction job site preferred wheeled excavators, especially compact wheeled excavators.
With growing infrastructure developments, across the world, the need for excavators identified in almost every construction project. Thus, many rental companies across the world continuously invest in purchasing new excavators to keep the average age of its excavator fleet at a potential of 2 to 3 years, to capture the wide customers demand, who are looking for advanced and efficient excavators.
- For instance, Theisen Baumaschinen Mietpark GmbH & Co KG, one of the leading construction equipment rental companies in Germany, has recently purchased 32 new wheeled (12 units) and crawler excavators (20 units) from Doosan in 2018, to strengthen its rental equipment fleet for regional Theisen centers across Germany and also in Vienna in Austria.
Developing Economies Expected to Lead the Global Market
The global construction industry is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years, with the good opportunities in infrastructure, residential, and non-residential sectors. Some of the major factors driving the market are increasing construction of multi-family houses (with the growing trend of nuclear families); and increasing investments in the construction of roads, highways, smart cities, metros, bridges, and expressways due to growing population and urbanization.
Asia-Pacific region is expected to be a major market propelling the global construction industry, with augmenting construction activities in countries, such as India and ASEAN countries (including Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and others). For instance, in India, the construction sector is one of the booming industries. The construction sector in the country is expected to grow twice as fast as China's till 2030, with the country's populations. The infrastructure sector is an important pillar for the growth of the Indian economy. The government is taking various initiatives to ensure time-bound creation of an excellent infrastructure in the country. For instance -
- The government has announced a target of USD 376.5 billion investment in infrastructure over a period of three years, including USD 120.5 billion for developing 27 industrial clusters and USD 75.3 billion for road, railway, and port connectivity projects. Indian roadways is the second-largest in the world. Owing to the increasing number of vehicles and traffic, the government is planning to further extend the roadways in the coming years.
- Growing investments in the infrastructure sector and other strategic initiatives of the government are expected to boost the construction sector in the country, in turn propelling the demand for construction machinery tires from the aftermarket sector.
Apart from the Asia-Pacific region, in Rest of the World, South Africa is also expected to witness high demand for construction tires, especially from the aftermarket sector.
In South Africa, owing to bad economic conditions and decreasing and exchange rate have been significantly impacting the construction industry in South Africa over a decade. The demand for compact construction equipment rental has been continuously growing in the country, owing to its low rental price as well as the capability to handle construction activities in the country. Thus, most of the rental equipment companies are planning to expand their rental fleet in the compact equipment. Thus, renting equipment has been a greater preference by most of the construction contractors in the country. Such growing initiatives in the construction industry in South Africa is likely to propel construction machinery rental companies to expand their fleet size and maintain a timely servicing of their existing machinery, which in turn may drive a potential demand for the tires from aftermarket consumers, during the forecast period.
Some of the major players dominating the market are Bridgestone Corp., Trelleborg AB, Continental Tires, Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd., Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and Michelin.
