A compaction machine is a type of mechanical equipment typically used to reduce and compact the size of soil or gravel used in the construction of dams and airports. Road rollers or compactors are the most common example of compaction machines that use the weight of the vehicle to compact the surface being rolled. Moreover, some machines use their mechanical advantage through vibration by getting ample power from their engines. The weight of compaction can be increased by filling sand or water ballast in the hollow cylinder. 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.

Market Statistics:

The global compaction machines market is expected to surpass US$ 8,525.0 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2030.

Global Compaction Machines Market: Driver

Rapid urbanization across the globe is expected to drive growth of the global compaction machines market during the forecast period. Urbanization across the globe has been increasing rapidly, especially in emerging economies such as India and China. According to the United Nations (UN), by 2050, 68% of the world population is expected to live in urban areas. According to the same source, the urban population of the world increased from 751 million in 1951 to 4.2 billion in 2018. Moreover, North America is the most urbanized region in the world, accounting for 82% of its population living in urban areas in 2018.

Global Compaction Machines Market: Opportunity

Rising penetration of rental business and secondary sales market. Globally the number of organized players with large rental fleets is limited since these players lack the capacity to expand their operations. Moreover, organized players encounter stiff pricing competition from the unorganized sector, where players are involved in off the book cash transactions and can, therefore, offer much lower rates. Existing spares secondary trades are based on non-standardized transaction prices.

Global Compaction Machines Market: Restraint

High costs of installation and delay in approvals for infrastructural projects are expected to hamper the global compaction machines market growth over the forecast period. New road construction costs for projects collected range from roughly US$ 100,000 to US$ 2.7 Mn per lane Km, depending upon the type of roadway (expressway, motorways and access roads), and the project’s location (urban or rural roads). In India, private investments fell short of investment targets by a third during the 11th Five Year Plan, owing to funding constraints for road projects and delays caused by land acquisition issues.
