EMEA to grow at a CAGR of close to 15% through 2019

EMEA was the second leading region in the global mobile crane market in 2015. The market is driven by the growth in the construction industry in MEA and a revival of construction activities in Europe.

Investments in power plant construction and the development of transport infrastructure are driving the demand for mobile cranes in EMEA. Turkey, France, Poland, and Romania attracted huge investments from their governments, particularly toward urban transport infrastructure development in 2015.

Nigeria, South Africa, and Egypt are also envisaged to become attractive hubs for foreign investments in infrastructure development over the next four years. In June 2015, the Egyptian government signed a deal worth over USD 5 billion with Siemens for the development of wind and gas power plants. Many similar projects in the MEA region will buoy the demand for mobile cranes during the forecast period.

Growth of mobile cranes in Americas

The mobile crane market in the Americas was valued at close to USD 6 billion in 2014 and is the third leading region in the global crane market. The largest demand for mobile cranes comes from North America owing to sustained investments in infrastructure developments.

Infrastructure projects in the US, Brazil, and Canada are likely to drive the demand for mobile cranes in the region in the next four years. In addition, the mobile cranes market in the Americas is witnessing investments into the reconstruction of existing infrastructure in these countries. For instance, in early 2015, the Government of Canada earmarked over USD 4 billion for infrastructure spending, part of which will be invested in reconstruction activities, reports Technavio’s analysis. Growth in the equipment rental industry is also expected to significantly contribute to the growth of the mobile crane market in Americas until 2019, notes Technavio’s research analyst, Sowmya.
