Dublin, November 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The “Global construction equipment market by type (crawler and mini excavator, backhoe loader, skid steer loader, wheel, bulldozer, dump truck), electrical equipment, propulsion, power output, application, location, post- treatment and region – Forecast for 2026 “ the report was added to offer.

The global construction equipment market is expected to reach $ 250.4 billion by 2026, from $ 208.3 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period.

The growth of this market is fueled by increased investment in infrastructure after the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to fuel demand for construction equipment and increased investment in urban infrastructure is expected to boost the sector of construction, and thus should boost construction equipment. market during the forecast period.

CNG / LNG / RNG market in construction equipment market will be the fastest growing market

Natural gas is more environmentally friendly than diesel and gasoline. It produces 25% less sulfur, nitrogen and carbon pollutants. Natural gas contains methane as the main component, with traces of ethane, propane, butane and nitrogen. Natural gas engines burn cleaner than other engines and have minor differences from their diesel counterparts. Natural gas engines also produce less noise and vibration, increasing operator comfort.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is mainly methane that has been cooled to turn it into liquid. Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is natural gas produced from organic waste such as food waste, garden and lawn waste, and animal and plant waste. It is also produced from degraded carbon waste such as paper, cardboard and wool. Biogas is produced from organic waste, and it is cleaned and conditioned to remove non-methane elements.

According to the California Resource Board, RNG from food diverted from landfills and green waste can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 125%, and RNG from dairy manure can lead to a 400% reduction in gas emissions. greenhouse effect by replacing traditional vehicle fuels. It produces 70% less greenhouse gases than diesel or gasoline, making it the most environmentally friendly fuel. It is also economical compared to diesel and gasoline. Natural gas is the most promising alternative fuel for construction machinery. Construction companies that offer CNG fueled construction equipment are Caterpillar and JCB.

The Asia-Pacific market plays a very important role in the growth of the construction equipment market

Asia-Pacific is expected to hold the largest market share in terms of value and volume. The construction equipment market has seen growth in terms of the number of projects such as dams, airports and hydroelectric projects, thanks to which many international companies have started their manufacturing plants in this region. Some of the man-made wonders and remarkable construction projects such as Beijing New International Airport (China) and South to North Water Transfer Project (China) are being implemented in the region. The region is estimated to be the most populous in the world, which creates immense growth opportunities for the construction equipment market.
