Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Bulldozer Market in Japan 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the bulldozer market in Japan: Doosan Corporation (Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction), Hitachi Construction Machinery, Kobelco Construction Machinery and Komatsu

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Caterpillar, JCB and Volvo

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Construction equipment manufacturers in Japan are focusing on the development of energy-efficient bulldozers that comply with the emission standards laid down by the government. The new fuel-efficient equipment enables reduces fuel consumption, and ensures low carbon emission. This also leads to a decline in construction costs. In 2014, Komatsu launched a medium-size bulldozer, D85, which is eco-friendly and consumes less fuel. This new equipment conforms to the 2014 Off Road Law. In addition, this bulldozer is equipped with an automatic gear shift power line, coupled with a rear monitor system, seat belt alarm, and an auto ideal stop function, among other advanced features.”

According to the report, the government is investing in reconstruction of ageing infrastructure such as non-residential and commercial buildings, roads, highways, and tunnels, which are more than a couple of decades old. In addition, the government is also focusing on the repair of roads and other public infrastructure damaged during the 2011 tsunami and earthquake. For instance, in 2014, the government announced plans for reconstruction of Fukushima, Miyagi, and Iwate prefectures in Japan. These activities will continue to drive the demand for earthmoving equipment, including bulldozers, in the next 5-6 years.

Further, the report states that the construction market is labor-intensive, and lack of workers is not only leading to project delays but also increasing overall construction cost.
