Compaction is a process used to compress materials in terms of size. Soil compaction is the most common example, wherein it provides strength and stability to the soil and decreases the permeability and erosion of soil. A compaction machine is a mechanic device used to compact trash, gravel, soil, concrete or asphalt during the construction of roads, airports, and dams. Compaction machines play a vital role in a plethora of road construction projects. Compaction machines are typically used to remove air and water movement from the soil and decrease pore spaces. Different machines and equipment are used in compaction including rammers, smooth wheeled Rollers, pneumatic tiered Rollers, sheepsfoot Roller, pad foot Rollers, etc. These machines are used for compaction of broken stones, sand, soil, etc.

The global compaction machines market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4,955.1 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period (2022-2030).

Moreover, China increased its paved roadways network around three times since 2000. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), China will surpass the U.S. in annual road vehicle kilometers by 2025 and is expected to continue to build and maintain new roadways at a significant rate. Moreover, according to CMI’s analysis, the investments in infrastructure are expected to reach around US$ 57 trillion or 3.5% of global GDP, of which US$ 16.5 trillion will be invested in new road construction and maintenance.

Rising number of paved roads is expected to propel the global compaction machines market growth over the forecast period. The perpetual requirement to develop good quality roads is the factor driving growth of sustainable development and economy across the globe. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, by 2025, expenditure on road pavements is expected to triple from today’s level and would occupy 80% of the present road network. According to the same source, since 2010, global roadways network length increased by approximately 12 Mn lane Km. China and India accounted for more than 50% of paved lane Km additions during that period. Moreover, paved lane Km accounted for 53% of the total global road lane Km in 2000, whereas by 2010 only about 60% of total road lane km were paved.
