2021 Comparative SWOT & Business Outlook on the World's 7 Leading Construction Equipment Manufacturers - Caterpillar, Komatsu, Volvo, CNH, John Deere, Hitachi and Kubota -

·4-min read

The "Comparative SWOT & Business Outlook - 2021 - World's 7 Leading Construction Equipment Manufacturers - Caterpillar, Komatsu, Volvo, CNH, John Deere, Hitachi, Kubota" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Construction Equipment Market witnessed a relatively limited impact from the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 albeit expectations of an impending market correction with the market resistance, led clearly by the Chinese Construction Equipment market, which clearly defied the contractionary trend witnessed globally, by registering strong, double digit year on year gain in unit sales for 2020 spurred by the roll-out of stimulus measures by the Chinese government aimed at bolstering economy. The global demand for construction equipment is projected to register a steady recovery & growth over near to medium term with most key global economies likely to witness an uptick in demand following similar fiscal interventions likely to be pursued & sustained by governments across most regions going forward coupled with strong global economic recovery projections by the IMF for 2021 & 2022, led by the U.S.

Further, the massive, $2 trillion infrastructure plan just outlined by the Biden administration in early April 2021, geared towards comprehensive repair & rebuilding of roads, railroads, bridges & ports in the U.S., could turn out to be the much needed shot in the arm for the construction industry going forward and could take the market towards & even beyond the peak of 2018, and seen prior to that in 2011, once again, with an outlay of $115 billion planned towards repair of highways & bridges alone, if it gets approved by the Congress. However, much of that will be contingent on the pace & trajectory of global macroeconomic recovery from the COVID-19 going forward, direction of U.S. policy posture towards global trade under Biden administration and sustainment of recovery in global crude oil as well as commodity prices, all of which will have a direct & significant bearing on the shape of the growth curve for the industry going forward.

Another growth catalyst for the off & on-highway segments over medium term is likely to be technology-driven and is likely to come in form of the transition towards Connected, Autonomous & Electric Technologies which are likely to witness rapid commercialization over medium term. These next-generation technologies are likely to stimulate as well as accelerate replacement demand for existing equipment across both traditional as well as emerging markets with their way superior & unmatched capabilities, operating efficiencies and total cost of ownership.
