It covers the key trends and growth opportunities anticipated to have a favorable impact on the market. Besides, the study covers segment and regional revenue forecasts for market assessment.

A crawler or dozer, often known as a bulldozer, is a powerful construction tool mostly used for pushing, hauling, and lifting bulky items like rocks, dirt, and other trash. The main feature of a bulldozer is its enormous, curved front blade, which, depending on its design, can be utilized for a variety of jobs. These amazing machines are essential to the excavation and building sectors because of their strong construction and enormous power.

Moreover, a bulldozer can be utilized in conjunction with other heavy machinery to finish a project quickly and successfully. Any excavation operation benefits greatly from the employment of a bulldozer, which is frequently employed in conjunction with backhoes or excavators to transfer the materials that have been dug. Also, crawlers are not just used for moving earth and soil; their ripper on the back can also be utilized to remove waste and brush. Their capacity to move large loads is another reason they are frequently utilized in landfill projects. Last but not least, bulldozers can also be used to crush rocks, pull out trees, and grade surfaces. The crawlers & dozers market growth can be ascribed to the increasing demand for construction, mining, and transportation.

By Horsepower Analysis

  • 300 to 600 hp segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The 300 to 600 hp segment accounted for the largest market share. The growth of the segment market can be largely attributed to increased demand for this power range crawlers & dozers in a wide range of construction projects such as roads, bridges, highways, airports, and commercial buildings. Apart from this, there has been an increasing demand for these horsepower products in the mining and quarrying sectors, as they significantly require powerful dozers and crawlers for tasks like excavation, material handling, and site preparation.

The more than 600 hp segment is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the projected period on account of their increasing prevalence in the mining and extraction industry as well as in the energy sector, as these powerful crawlers & dozers are crucial for preparing the land and installing the necessary infrastructure more efficiently.

By Application Analysis

  • The construction segment held a significant market revenue share in 2022

The construction segment led the industry market with a substantial share in 2022, which is majorly driven by the exponential rise in the number of government initiatives and programs supporting infrastructure development, particularly in emerging economies like India, China, and Indonesia, coupled with the ongoing trend of industrialization and urbanization that lead to a surge in residential and commercial buildings construction activities. For instance, as per our insights, the total urban population of India was estimated to be around 475 million in 2021, with a growth of approx. 2.2% from the previous year. Also, the urban population of the country has grown by 7.1% between the period of 2018-2021.

Besides this, various developed countries around the world are constantly focusing on the upgradation of their existing infrastructure and replacing their equipment with new or more innovative equipment to improve productivity and reduce maintenance costs; thereby, the age and condition of existing fleets are likely to bode well for the segment market growth.

The agriculture segment is anticipated to gain a substantial growth rate over the next coming years, owing to a drastic increase in food demand as a result of the continuously growing global population and the proliferation of the mechanization of agriculture that helps farmers easily replace traditional labor practices with powerful and efficient equipment.
