Global Excavator Market 2015-2019
Excavators are used to unearth, transport, and unload materials with the help of a bucket fitted to a boom. They move on crawlers or wheels. Excavators are versatile heavy construction machines used for below- and above-ground operations, including land leveling, digging trenches, and sinking wells.
The global excavator market witnessed a healthy growth of 10.24% Y-o-Y in 2014, as compared to 10.17% in 2013. The market was driven by increased investment in the construction sector, particularly in APAC. In 2014, APAC accounted for the highest market share of 70.41% of the global excavator market. Countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Philippines have significantly contributed to the growth of the market. Large-scale investments have been planned across these countries for the development of transport infrastructure and construction of new power plants, particularly nuclear. Further, investments in the mining sector, particularly in Latin America, have also contributed to the growth of the market. Owing to the above-mentioned factors, the demand for excavators is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. According to Technavio, the global excavator market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.52% during the period 2014-2019.
In 2014, the crawler excavator segment dominated the global excavator market with a market share of 78.37%, while the remaining share was accounted for by the mini excavator segment with a share of 21.63%. This trend is likely to continue during the forecast period. Owing to such high demand for excavators, equipment manufacturers are developing new excavators that are fuel-efficient and technologically advanced with features such as display of real time information regarding performance. In addition, the equipment rental business is also growing rapidly in Europe and the US, but the sector is still in the nascent stage in APAC.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global excavator market to grow at a CAGR of 10.52% over the period 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Excavator Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Excavator Market: Caterpillar, Deere & Company, Hitachi Construction Machinery, Komatsu and Volvo Construction Equipment
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bharat Earth Movers, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, Guangxi LiuGong Machinery, JCB, Sany Group, XCMG and Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Excavator manufacturers globally are focusing strongly on the development of software-enabled control systems. These intelligent machines help in reducing the duplication of work by providing accurate digging measurements, and, at the same time, they provide information pertaining to the positioning of the components attached to the excavator. Further, the laser and slop sensors in these systems are able to measure the tilt and slope of the blade and the lift control in the excavator.”
According to the report, government initiatives across different countries have not only spurred investment in the construction sector but have also propelled demand for construction equipment. Governments across countries such as Brazil, Turkey, China, India, Qatar, Poland, and the US have contributed to the growth of infrastructure development by way of new policy frameworks. This indeed has led many equipment manufactures to locate their production facilities in these countries.
Further, the report states that increasing competition among equipment manufacturers has led to an increased need for product differentiation. Therefore, market vendors are trying to differentiate their products by providing additional support and services.
