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.
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
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 fell 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 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.
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 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).
