However, the high initial cost required for the acquisition and purchasing of carry deck cranes, especially advanced and larger models, and its limited awareness and popularity as compared to other lifting equipment available in the market are the key factors expected to hinder the global market.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

  • The rapid increase in the number of construction and mining activities worldwide boosts the demand for these cranes.

There has been a drastic increase in the need for construction and mining activities mainly because of the rising population burden and their increasing residential and commercial needs, which led to significant infrastructure development and higher focus on new construction projects by both governments and private organizations, which often requires cranes for several purposes including equipment lifting and material handling. Thereby, with the continuous growth in the construction & mining sector, the demand and adoption for carry deck cranes also increases. For instance, as per a recent report by Reuters, new home construction in the United States has surged by most in the last three decades in 2023. The housing starts reached 1.631 million units in May, a significant increase compared to housing starts in April 2023.

By Type Analysis

  • The mobile cranes segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The mobile cranes segment accounted for the largest share. This growth is largely due to its ability to be used in various tasks, including equipment, lifting heavy materials, and personnel. This makes it an ideal and highly preferred choice for construction projects like roads, bridges, and buildings.  Furthermore, the higher reliance on mobiles of various energy sectors like oil & gas, renewable energy, and power generation for performing several crucial tasks like installation, equipment maintenance, and transportation of heavy components is further boosting the segment market growth.

The tower cranes segment is projected to exhibit a significant growth rate over the next coming years on account of their emergence as very crucial or essential equipment for large-scale construction projects, including high-rise buildings and industrial or manufacturing facilities and continuous improvements in tower crane technology and capabilities that make them more appealing to construction companies who are looking to optimize their operations better.

By Capacity Analysis

  • 21 to 50 tons segment held the maximum market share in 2022

The 21 to 50 tons’ segment held the majority market share in terms of revenue in 2022, which is majorly driven by its surging use in port and shipyard operations that often require heavy lifting equipment for easier and convenient loading and unloading of cargo containers coupled with its ability to offer a balance between maneuverability and lifting capacity that allow it to also operate in confined spaces. Besides this, the exponential rise in the e-commerce industry and a growing number of people shopping through online platforms is resulting in a significant burden on ports to manage a large number of containers, which, in turn, positively influences the growth of the market.

By Application Analysis

  • The mining segment is projected to exhibit the highest growth over the projected period.

The mining segment is projected to grow at the highest growth rate over the next coming years, mainly due to a surge in the need and demand for various minerals and sources, including coal, iron ore, copper, and gold, among others, and greater need for advanced and specialized equipment like carry deck cranes in mining sectors to improve or enhance the versatility and safety the operations.

The construction & infrastructure segment led the industry market with a substantial share in 2022 and is mainly driven by a large number of potential applications of these types of cranes in manufacturing plants and industrial facilities and a growing trend of urbanization that leads to the construction of new buildings & infrastructure in the cities.

Regional Insights

  • North America region dominated the global market in 2022.

The North American region dominated the global market, which is mainly attributable to rising investments in infrastructure projects such as bridges, highways, and airports and the growing renewable energy sector, including wind and solar energy projects that all require carry deck cranes for the installation and maintenance of crucial equipment.  

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to emerge as the fastest growing region, owing to the presence of several favorable government initiatives and policies that support or promote infrastructure development and industrial growth, such as the growing implementation of high-speed trains in countries like India and Indonesia. Apart from this, the substantial increase in international trade and maritime activities in the Asia Pacific region and significant economic growth and FDIs also drive the demand for carry deck cranes at a rapid pace.
