Ground engaging tools are metal components with a high wear resistance that come into direct contact with the ground during construction and excavation activities. These metal components are specially designed for excavators, loaders, bulldozers, and other machines. Mining and construction equipment are the most common applications of ground engaging tools.
Governments of various countries are focusing on investing significantly in the development of smart cities and this is expected to positively aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to the Indian Union budget 2018 -2019, under the smart cities mission, a total of 99 cities have been selected with an outlay of US$ 32.07 billion (Rs 2.04 lakh crore). Under this mission, the projects worth US$ 369.43 Mn (Rs 2,350 crore) have been completed and projects worth US$ 3.82 billion (Rs 20,852 crore) are under progress. Hence, this high investment for smart city projects is expected to accelerate the demand for construction equipment. According to UAE Federal Budget 2017, the government released funds of US$ 381.2 Million (AED 1.4bn) for Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme, and for federal ministry projects, the government released US$ 242.6 Million (AED 891 Mn). Moreover, for power and water projects, the government released the fund of US$ 210 Mn (AED 771 Mn), which will be implemented by the Federal Electricity & Water Authority (FEWA).
Governments’ stringent regulations are leading to the increased processing time for permits for new projects and could hinder demand for mining equipment. This could, therefore, negatively impact growth of the market over the forecast period.

Figure 1: Global Ground Engaging Tools Market Share (%), By Region, 2021
Among regions, Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global ground engaging tools market in 2021, and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The factor attributed to growth of the ground engaging tools market in Asia Pacific is due to the increasing growth in the construction sector, especially in emerging economies such as India and China. Rapid urbanization and industrialization are some of the factors that fuel growth of the construction sector. According to the World Bank Group an international financial institution, GDP per capita of India increased from US$ 5.456 in 2012 to US$ 8.154 in 2016. Moreover, increasing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in the infrastructure sector is expected to further accelerate the construction of roads, bridges, and dams. For instance, according to a report by the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), in September 2018, the FDI inflows in the construction sector, which includes townships, built-up infrastructure, and construction- development projects, reached US$ 24.29 billion in 2017 from 24.18 billion in 2016. Therefore, increasing construction activities in emerging economies is expected to drive the demand for construction equipment, which in turn increases demand for ground engaging tools
North America is one of the leading markets for ground engaging tools and it is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. Increasing consumption of electricity in the U.S. is a major factor propelling growth of the global ground engaging tools market in North America. For instance, according to the CIA World Factbook, world's premier foreign intelligence agency, consumption of electricity in the U.S. in 2015 was 3.911 trillion kWh. High consumption of electricity is expected to increase production of coal in the region. For instance, according to the International Organizing Committee for the World Mining Congresses, the production of steam coal in the U.S. in 2013 was 743 730 000 metric tons (mt), which increased to 760 930 000 mt in 2014. Therefore, high production of coal increases usage of machines such as excavators, loader, tractors, and others in the mining sector. This in turn drives the demand for ground engaging tools to enhance the performance of these machine and to reduce their maintenance cost.

Ground engaging tools are metal components with a high wear resistance that come in direct contact with the ground during construction and excavation activities. Ground engaging tools used in construction and mining industry. These tools provide invaluable capabilities like enhanced soil penetration and efficient ripping and grading, while also giving your machines the protection they need to maintain maximum performance.
Increasing population is one of the major driving factors leading to rising construction activities, globally. For instance, according to the Population Reference Bureau, in 2017, the population of China was 1,387 Mn, in India 1,353 Mn, in the U.S. 325 Mn, in Indonesia 264 Mn, and in Brazil 208 Mn. Hence, this increasing population have raised the need for new infrastructure, houses, and others which is expected to drive growth of the market for ground engaging tools. Moreover, rising population in urban areas have also accelerated demand for new constructions such as building including commercial and residential. For instance, according to the Chartered Institute of Building 2015 report, India needs to build 31,000 new houses per day over the next 15 years to meet the needs of rapidly growing urban population. Hence, this increasing demand for new construction have accelerated growth of the ground engaging tools market. Rapid urbanization and industrialization are some of the factors that fuel growth of the construction sector. For instance, according to the Worldometer analysis, in India, 32.8% of the total population resided in the urban area in 2017, which increased from 2016. Furthermore, rising demand for metals and mineral commodities, as well as increased use of natural resources such as coal, diamonds, and uranium are fueling the mining industry vertical. Additionally, expanding infrastructure development and automotive industry are some of the other driving factors for the metals and mining sector's growth that are expected to rise demand for global ground engaging tools over the forecasted period.
