Market Dynamics- Drivers

  1. Increasing investments in infrastructure projects are expected to drive growth of the global pilling machine market during the forecast period

Global construction industry is witnessing rapid growth due to high rate of urbanization and increasing demands for rail, roads, buildings, etc. As a result of this, governments of various countries are focused on the development of transportation infrastructure. For instance, in July 2016, the Government of India launched numerous projects including the development of 24 smart cities, two ports, 23 industrial hubs, and 1500-km, six-lane express highway. Such projects are expected to drive growth of the global piling machine market during the forecast period.

  1. Rising investment in non-conventional energy source is expected to propel the global pilling machine market growth over the forecast period

Increasing importance for unconventional energy sources such as the wind and solar energy for power generation fueled by regulatory support in China, India, and Japan is expected to promote further the foundation work and thus in turn fuel the demand for piling machines over the forecast period. For instance, by 2020, China- the world’s largest energy user plans to have 100 GW of solar and 200 GW of wind installed. China also led the world in new wind and solar installations, with 19.81 gigawatts (GW) and 10.60 GW respectively. Thus, these factors are expected to propel the global piling market growth in the near future.

Market Opportunities

  1. Research and development activities among market players can present lucrative growth opportunities in the global piling machine market

Key companies are focused on research and development activities, in order to enhance the market presence. For instance, in 2015, BSP International launched DX hydraulic hammers that can drive small bearing piles and sheet piles single or in pairs. This hammer can be driven directly using a hydraulic rig or an excavator base. Furthermore, in June 2016, Soilmec S.p.A. launched an advanced rig in two models, SR-45 and SR-75, which can be used in various soil conditions.

  1. Advancements in pile positioning equipment can provide major business opportunities in the global piling machine market

Foundation equipment manufacturers also developing the equipment that are enabled with GPS or other land positioning systems for locating foundations. Furthermore, different types of sensors are used on crane mast of foundation rigs used for positioning of foundation elements. Thus, such technological advancements enable rig or crane to position the foundation to particular coordinates and thus, reduces the cost of the survey.

Market Trends

  1. Advent of eco-friendly equipment

Piling machines manufacturers are focused on upgrading their products, in order to enhance their efficiency and produce eco-friendly products. For instance, diesel hammer is being slowly replaced by a hydraulic hammer due to environmental concerns. In densely polluted areas, the hydrostatic pile driver finds application, in order to drive the pile into the ground, which typically works on vibration. This, in turn, avoids complaints related to dust and noise pollution.

  1. Introduction of intelligent pile driving equipment

Companies such as Bermingham Foundation Solutions developing an intelligent pile driving system to bring efficiency in their equipment. For this, the hammer energy is regulated in real-time with various measured variables including different dynamic testing equipment, vibrations, and measured sound levels. Such solutions can present efficiency by decreasing the energy consumption of the equipment.
