World demand for construction machinery is projected to expand 6.5 percent annually through 2015. Over half of all additional demand will come from the Asia/Pacific region, although the rate of growth will slow from the pace of the 2005-2010 period. Cranes, loaders and excavators will expand at above-average rates.
This study analyzes the $125 billion world construction machinery industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, with forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., loaders, cranes and draglines, excavators, off-highway trucks and tractors, mixers and pavers, graders and rollers), world region and for 36 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 industry players, including Caterpillar, Komatsu and Hitachi Construction Machinery.
