In addition, the significant growth in both retrofit and new infrastructure and emergence of automated lifting machinery or hooks across the world, have been propelling the global market at rapid pace.

  • For instance, in June 2023, Galbreath, introduced its new controller for roll-off and hook lift hoists named “Power Tower Pro”, that includes a side and backup camera systems with 7-inch cab display improving the operator visibility. The newly developed system allows the operators to easily control range of aspects of machine from being inside the can with Controller Area Network integration.

Moreover, with the surging incorporation and implementation of smart load monitoring systems in lifting hooks using sensors and data processing capabilities to provide real-time information about the load's weight, angle, and position during lifting operations, which helps operators make informed decisions, prevent overloading and ensures safe lifting practices, the demand and adoption of these hooks have grown exponentially in the last few years.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the lifting hooks market. The emergence of the deadly virus across the globe has forced countries and governments to take necessary and strict actions like lockdowns and restrictions on trade activities, that led to temporary closure of construction and development activities, shortage of raw materials, lack of workforce, and disruptions in the supply chain.
