Construction and Mining Equipment Market in India Poised to Experience Demand of Over 160 Thousand Units by 2018
Total demand for select construction and mining equipment market in India was found to be 105,811 units in FY2013. The market for new C&ME is likely to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% to 166,876 units in FY2018. Large allocations by government to public projects such as NHDP, Metro, and BRTS in India and strong emphasis on construction and real estate is likely to push demand for the construction and mining equipment. Government projects would account for 80% of the total demand. Mega projects and infrastructure development will fuel the demand for construction machinery and is expected to lead to a general shift towards higher-tonnage segments, e.g. Dumpers to shift from 50-100T to 100-150T segment.
Executive Summary—Key Findings for Construction and Mining Equipment Market
1 Total demand for select construction and mining equipment (C&ME) market in India was found to be units in FY2013. The market for new C&ME is likely to grow at a CAGR of % to units in FY2018
2 Large allocation by government to public projects such as National Highway Development Project (NHDP), Metro and Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) in India and strong emphasis on construction and real estate are likely to push the demand for Construction and mining equipment. Government projects to account for % of the total demand
3 Dominance of foreign OEMs is likely to continue in the future as well. The top five OEMs—Caterpillar, L&T Komatsu, JCB, Tata Hitachi and BEML account for % of all units shipped in FY2013
4 Mega projects and infrastructure development will fuel the demand for construction machinery and is expected to lead to a general shift towards higher-tonnage segments, for instance, Dumpers would shift from-T to -T segment
5 With global OEMs setting up local manufacturing facilities, India is expected to become an export hub primarily for Asia and Africa. For instance, JCB is opening up new export market for backhoe loaders and excavators in South East Asia, Middle East and Africa
6 Due to absence of proper fuel emission standards, the region is likely to witness delay in introduction of key vehicle engine technology compared to European and American standards
Executive Summary—SWOT Analysis
Technology for higher-tonnage equipment is not easily available in India, majority of the components need to be imported.
C&ME Market: SWOT Analysis, India, FY2013
