The Covid-19 pandemic hindered the growth of construction machinery/equipment market across GCC region owing to shut down of manufacturing facilities and halt of investments into infrastructure sector.

Key Market Trends

Earthmoving Equipment Segment Expected to Dominate the Market

In recent years, renting earth moving equipment, such excavators, motor graders, Loaders, are increasing due to growing infrastructural projects related to road and highway networks in countries such as Saudi Arabia, UAE and owing to the penetration of more construction contractors in the country due to Saudi Vision 2030. For instance, in February 2020, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the development of main roads in the heart of Riyadh in order to upgrade the city’s transportation system.

The project objective is to transform Riyadh to be a major hub in providing sustainable transportation services as well as logistics services in the Middle East. The program will work on developing junctions between Riyadh’s ring roads and main routes. It will develop 400 kilometers of the road network, by adding new roads and upgrading existing junctions.

Several rental companies are expanding their rental fleet and are designing plans to upgrade their product portfolio to strengthen their position in the market. For instance,

In August 2021, Al Faris Group strengthened its fleet by adding a total of five new 8-axle low loaders by Faymonville to deal with difficult terrain, narrow job construction sites, and winding platforms.
In September 2020, Dubai-based Salim Equipment Rental took delivery of two Liebherr HS 8130.1 duty cycle crawler cranes as part of its fleet expansion to offer services to the specialized foundation industry in the region.

Owing to the aforementioned instances and developments, the trend of renting construction machinery is to rise and is anticipated to witness healthy growth over the forecast period.

United Arab Emirates Likely to Lead the GCC Construction Machinery Rental Market

The construction market is a key driver of the UAE economy, but the sector has come under substantial pressure due to the prolonged slump in oil prices in 2019 and the COVID-19. However, as economic activities resume across the UAE, demand for renting construction machinery is likely to pick up the pace.

This growth in the rental market is mainly due to the growing construction sector as well as government initiatives towards rising infrastructure spending for World Expo 2020. Additionally, increasing construction projects in the commercial and residential verticals would further fuel demand in the UAE. For instance,

In January 2020, the government of Fujairah announced the construction of 44 km road network project that covers 11 main areas in the United Arab Emirates. Earlier, in October 2019, the government announced the construction of 64 km of internal roads that cover the major cities in the country.
In April 2020, Target Engineering, a subsidiary of Arabtec Holding, received two contracts worth USD 57 million in the country, and the projects aimed to be completed by the first quarter of 2022.

Several players in the market are adopting growth strategies such as expansion, partnerships to strengthen their position in the market. For instance, In July 2021, Sudhir Power Ltd, construction equipment and power generator rental business company, announced its joint venture with Fuel Buddy, an Indian doorstep fuel-delivery service startup, inaugurating its business in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Such factors are going to create significant demand for construction machinery, which furthermore is going to benefit the construction machinery rental market in the United Arab Emirates.

Competitive Landscape

The GCC Construction equipment/machinery rental market is moderately consolidated owing to presence of several major and local players in the market. The rental companies are investing significantly in the GCC region to have an edge over their competitors.
