Search Inside

The construction equipment rental market is anticipated to register a CAGR of about 4.78% during the forecast period.

- One of the major factors driving the growth of the market is the growing construction industry, especially in developing countries, owing to numerous growth opportunities in infrastructure, residential, and non-residential sectors. For instance, the rise in construction of multi-family houses (with the growing trend of nuclear families), and increasing investments in the construction of roads, highways, smart cities, metros, bridges, and expressways due to growing population and urbanization.
- The growing trend toward automation is expected to drive the growth of the market. However, factors, such as stringent emission regulations for construction machinery, are expected to hinder the growth of the market.
- The Asia-Pacific region is expected to continue to capture a major share in the market during the forecast period, owing to the growing construction sector and infrastructural investments in countries, such as India and ASEAN Countries (such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore).
- Some of the regional players operating in the market are Ashtead Group (Sunbelt Rentals), United Rentals Inc., Herc Rentals Inc., Kanmoto Co. Ltd, and H&E Equipment Services.

Key Market Trends
Increasing Investments in the ASEAN Construction Industry

- The construction industry is highly dynamic, and numerous factors, such as overall economy, budgets, and global economic scenario, are influencing the market’s growth. Volatility in these aspects affects the businesses of construction equipment OEMs, as well as construction rental equipment. This, in turn, is leading to price fluctuations of new, used, and rental equipment.
- The ASEAN region holds significant opportunities for the growth in demand for construction machinery. With the prospects of large infrastructure projects and shifting labor dynamics, the construction equipment rental market is expected to witness growth post-2020 during the forecast period. With a sudden outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic across the world, many economic sectors, including the construction industry, have been under lockdown for a few weeks/months in the first quarter of 2020.
- In the ASEAN countries, the construction sector is expected to grow at a rate of more than 6% post-2020. It is estimated that over the next five years, the combined value of all the mega-projects in the ASEAN region is expected to be valued at USD 2.9 trillion. Of this value, about USD 1.5 trillion is invested in the planning/pre-planning phase.
- In addition, the investments in infrastructure, both, public and private, such as the Indonesian National Medium-term Development Plan (USD 460 billion), Vietnam Socio-Economic Development Plan (USD 61.5 billion), and the Philippine Development Plan “Build, Build, and Build” (USD 71.8 billion), are expected to offer opportunities for construction equipment rentals.
- Thus, construction equipment rental in these scenarios proves to be the preferable and effective choices for the construction companies, primarily to reduce or minimize the impact of unexpected financial downturns.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Dominate the Construction Equipment Rental Market

The global construction equipment rental market has been experiencing positive growthover the past three years (2017-2019), as a result of the heavy investments made in the smart residential and commercial buildings sector, and government policies boosting to the manufacturing sector. However, in 2020, the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic across the world resulted in the lockdown of many economic sectors, including the construction industry, for a few weeks/months during the first quarter of 2020.

However, during this time, critical government construction projects, such as hospital builds, key utilities, and infrastructure, continued working but at a slower pace with less labor force at the job site to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Thus, during 2020, the construction equipment rental market value is likely to fall by ~30% due to a fall in the global economic growth, which, in turn, is resulting in a slow down of construction work timelines.

Currently, the construction equipment rental companies and construction contractors have slowly started to resume their construction works as governments have started giving approvals for commercial construction projects across the cities in many countries, like the United States, India, the United Kingdom, and China.

The emerging markets in Asia-Pacific and South America are witnessing strong demand for heavy construction equipment, and substantial investments are being made in these ese regions.

The ongoing demand for construction of smart cities across the world and various mega construction, particularly in developing countries, will increase the demand for the construction equipment rental market.

The Asia-Pacific is one of the largest markets that has witnessed a boom in the construction and infrastructural development, because of the growing emphasis by the governments on developing infrastructure for a sustainable economy. This region witnessed growth in the number of Special Economic Zones (SEZs), airports, metro construction, highway constructions, dams, hydroelectric projects, etc., in order to sustain high-level industrial activities, better connectivity, and growing energy demand. As a result, many international players are beginning to invest and are setting up manufacturing facilities and distribution centers in the region to meet the growing demand and to capture the regional market. Construction machinery manufacturers, such as Liebherr, Caterpillar, Hitachi, and Sumitomo Corporation, are offering rental services that face intense competition from numerous domestic and regional players, owing to the competitive pricing and technologically advanced equipment availability.

Crawler excavators are one of the most demanded heavy construction equipment (heavy-duty excavators), weighing 60,000 to 80,000 pounds, used across a wide range of applications, including industries (especially heavy infrastructural projects), underground utilities, road construction, pipeline, and commercial site preparation and demolition purposes. Increasing capacity augmentation in the cement industry is expected to propel the growth of the excavator market.

In order to ramp up the efficiency of work and reduce the maintenance cost of the machinery, equipment rental software solutions provide a base to the construction machinery rental companies. The majority ofthe international companies already started using these software solutions to track the precise working hours, parts replacement cycle, and operation efficiency.

The market is highly fragmented, such that for every country, there are more than 150 mobile crane service providers, according to the directory of cranes by TDKv. Post-2020, the operating profit of rental companies is anticipated to increase from 8-10% to 12-14%, owing to the rising non-residential construction activities and customers’ preference toward brand loyalty due to the extensive marketing activities conducted by major companies.

Competitive Landscape
The global construction equipment rental market is characterized by the presence of numerous domestic and regional players, resulting in a highly fragmented market environment.

The five key players, namely United Rentals Inc., Ashtead Group PLC, Herc Rentals, H&E Equipment Services, Loxaman, and Kanamoto Co. Ltd, in the market account for 18% of the market share, and the remaining 82% of the market share is held by other players (domestic or regional players).

The market is highly driven by mergers and acquisitions and joint venture activities.

- United Rental Inc., the top player in the North American market, has acquired nearly 14 organizations so far. In 2018, the acquisition of BlueLine increased United Rentals’ capacity in many of the largest metropolitan areas in North America, including both US coasts, the Gulf South and Ontario.
