Market Restraint

Significant initial investment and maintenance cost is expected to restrain growth of the MEA rough terrain cranes market during the forecast period. Rise in maintenance, as well as initial costs, has influenced end users to rent rough terrain cranes as opposed to making an outright purchase. Many company owners believe that if they use of equipment is not at least two-third of its average life, one should seriously consider renting the cranes as it is far more economical than purchasing it. Moreover, the maintenance cost is very high maintenance in the case of rough terrain cranes. The maintenance must also be done from time to time since a badly serviced crane can prove to be a very dangerous machine at the actual construction site. IPO articles are present but reports aren’t.

Market Trends

Previously, there has been use of two separate engines for power transmission required for transportation and operation of cranes. The manufacturers have now come up with a new trend of using one single powerful engine which can perform both functions efficiently. Installation of a single powerful engine also overcomes issues related to regulating authorities regarding carbon particles emitted from the exhaust. The introduction of single-engine is further expected to propel the growth of the rough terrain cranes in the MEA region.

Major companies in the market are focused on numerous organic and inorganic strategies, in order to enhance the market presence. For instance, in August 2016, Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science And Technology Co., Ltd. announced a joint venture with MAZ Group, a Belarusian truck crane manufacturer. Furthermore, in May 2016, Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science And Technology Co., Ltd. entered into strategic cooperation agreement with Huafa Group Co., Ltd. to establish a construction equipment leasing company in Zhuhai.
