The construction industry is one of the largest industries in the U.S. According to the data published by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), a U.S.-based trade association, in 2019, the construction industry had over 680,000 employers, and it employs over 7 million workers across the U.S. Furthermore, in 2019, the construction industry contributed around US$ 1.3 trillion to the U.S. economy, which was over 4.1% of the total U.S. GDP. Therefore, to promote industry growth, the U.S. government is significantly investing in the construction industry. For instance, in February 2018, the president of the U.S. announced US$ 1.5 trillion of investment in the construction industry including US$ 200 billion federal funding over 10 years from 2018. This investment is for the development of rural infrastructure and reconstruction of roads, bridges and airports, public hospitals, wastewater treatment systems, and others. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, the U.S. construction industry is expected to increase with a CAGR 5.2% during the forecast period 2020-27. Thus, increasing government and private investment in the construction industry is expected to drive the U.S. Heavy Duty Construction Equipment Market during the forecast period.

U.S. Heavy Duty Construction Equipment Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

COVID-19 pandemic has a massive impact on the construction industry. The U.S. and other major markets are in a state of lock down as a measure to combat the pandemic which has halted all the ongoing construction projects.

This will lead to delay in construction projects across the U.S. Furthermore, construction projects in the U.S. will also slow down due to several factors such as supply chain disruption, economic uncertainty, and labor shortage. According to Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), in April 2020, around 45% of contractors in the U.S. are experiencing delays in terms of material shortages, equipment, and others.

Major challenge that the U.S. construction industry is facing is material supply chain disruption, as several U.S. contractors are dependent on international material suppliers. In the Q1 and Q2 of the 2020, production in factories stopped or slowed down. This lead to supply chain bottlenecks of materials which will delay ongoing construction projects and possibly increase material costs. According to WMR’s estimates, around 33% of the U.S. building  material imports come from China and the shutdown in China has impacted construction activity in the U.S. Delay in construction projects is one of the restraining factors that is negatively impacting the heavy-duty construction equipment market in the U.S.
