Self-erecting segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The self-erecting segment accounted for considerable global market share in 2022 and is likely to retain its position throughout the projected period. The growth of the segment market can be largely attributable to its wide range of beneficial features, including being effectively operable on tight boundary sites where many material handling equipment cannot operate while providing excellent reach and lifting capacity and can be used on-site electricity or by a generator. Moreover, these types of cranes have gained high traction as they improved the health & safety on site because of the less manual handling and environment friendly, propelling the segment market growth significantly.

The flat top segment is expected to expand at a substantial growth rate over the forecast period, mainly driven by its growing adoption for congested work sites or sites where cranes need to overlap, and they are also a great option for performing work near power plants and airports. Additionally, flat-top cranes have easy maintenance access & built-in safety features, long-lasting parts, a load measurement system, and an economic frequency convertor motor that fuels its adoption for various construction projects across the globe.

Tower Crane Seg

6 to 10 ton segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

The 6-to-10-ton segment held the largest market share in 2022 in terms of revenue, which is highly attributed to an increased usage of these lifting capacity cranes in construction activity because of the broad spectrum of uses of these types of cranes. Moreover, the easy availability of a variety of designs under this lifting capacity category has paved the way for higher adoption across different agencies and countries, along with the increasing demand for these machines across several sectors, including energy, oil & gas, and port-material handling requirements, are other factors projected to boost the growth of the segment.

Additionally, the high tip hosting capacity offered by the 10-ton capacity cranes is another characteristic for buyers looking for the heavy-weight hoisting up over significant heights, thereby fueling the demand for the product extensively over the coming years.

Infrastructural construction segment is expected to witness highest growth over anticipated period

Infrastructural construction is projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the anticipated period, as the global contrition industry has undergone several substantial changes in the recent few years along with the rapid growth in the investment for infrastructure development, especially in emerging economies like India, China, and Indonesia. In addition, the widespread applications of tower cranes in earth moving equipment, including heavy loading, accurate movement, high cycle rating, and various new infrastructure campaigns, offset the economy, which is further likely to impact the segment market in the near future positively.

The demand in Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth

The Asia Pacific region is emerging as the fastest growing region in the global market over the coming years, which is mainly accelerated by extensive growth in the construction and material handling industries coupled with high awareness regarding automation and significantly growing emphasis on leading economies such as China, India, and Australia. Additionally, the region is witnessing a significant infrastructure boom, with various major projects approved in Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia have also fueled the demand for tower cranes.

North America dominated the global market in 2022 and is projected to maintain its dominance during the projected period. The presence of highly technologically advanced machines, a safer work environment for workers, larger economic expansion, and surging people's desire to shift to apartments are the primary factors driving the demand and growth of the regional market.
