Global Handling and Lifting Equipment Market 2016-2020

About Handling and Lifting Equipment

Handling equipment is used in the transportation and storage of materials and assemblies. Material handling activities start from the unloading of goods to the transfer of these goods into storage, assembly, packaging, and finally loading for transportation. Handling equipment must be designed based on the various stages of production.

Lifting activities consider factors such as lift radius, machine capacity at a given range, wind speed, and ground conditions. Lifting equipment has developed in terms of carrying capacity. Advanced equipment can perform complicated tasks with relative ease of movement, especially when compared to the traditional handling and lifting equipment.

The handling and storing of materials involve various processes like hoisting a large number of steel with a crane, transporting a truck loaded with concrete blocks, and piling stacked bricks and other materials such as drums, barrels, and lumber.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global handling and lifting equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 10.57% during the period 2016-2020.
