According to the World Urbanization Prospect, about 54% of global population belonged to urban areas in 2014, and is expected to increase to 66% by 2050, thereby boosting the market growth. Increasing government initiatives towards infrastructure development supplements the market growth. Moreover, growing public-private partnerships between government and private sector companies for the construction of public infrastructure systems in countries such as India and China have fueled the market growth. The Indian Government has heavily invested in the development of roads, railway tracks, airports, and overall infrastructure development, which involve the use of excavators, loaders, and other such heavy machinery. Designing and developing smart, internet-enabled, fuel & energy-efficient machinery by key market players have fueled the market growth. The growth of the heavy construction equipment market is hampered due to fluctuating prices of crude oil. Moreover, majority of the equipment that are used in the industry run on diesel, which release high carbon emissions and imposition of carbon regulations. This factor is likely to affect the growth of the market in the near future.
