Market Drivers & Challenges

Growth Indicators

Rising Demand for Aerial Work Platforms by End Users for Construction and Maintenance Purposes

The market for aerial work platforms is thriving on account of the increasing number of construction activities around the globe and the need for the maintenance of existing civil infrastructures, backed by growing urbanization worldwide and the increasing spending on construction. Aerial work platforms are used by construction companies widely as it can be used to reach heights which is not possible otherwise. These platforms help the civil workers to easily complete their tasks as these platforms allow the operator greater mobility and flexibility, which further contributes to enhanced work efficiency. The organizations in the construction industry use aerial work platforms by purchasing it or taking it on rent. In the recent years, owing to the increasing capitalization costs, there is a rising popularity for rented machineries. On the other hand, the increasing number of equipment rental providers is further adding to the demand for new aerial work platforms. Such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the global aerial work platform market.

Stringent Regulations Imposed by Government and Private Bodies to use Aerial Work Platforms

For the maintenance of buildings & infrastructures, for industrial and construction projects, especially for the maintenance jobs at enormous heights, government and private bodies have imposed strict regulations on the use of aerial work platform. Utilization of aerial work platforms reduces the number of casualties as there is no need to move up and down the scaffold. On the other hand, with the fear of the stringent government norms for old aerial work platforms, the platform providers are focusing on upgrading their existing fleet with better machinery. The platforms that are currently available in the market utilize CAN-bus technology, which is known to offer better functions to the workers and also reduces work related casualties. The increasing focus of the government and private entities towards the safety of workers upon the use of aerial work platforms are anticipated to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.


Requirement of Skilled Labors at Construction Areas

Modern aerial work platforms are made up of advanced technologies that need skilled working class to handle and operate the platforms. When lifted to a certain height, the operator needs to handle the platform very carefully and skillfully to avoid accidents. Such a factor is anticipated to hamper the growth of the global aerial work platform market.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the prominent industry leaders in the global aerial work platform market are Terex Corporation, JLG Industries (Oshkosh Corporation, Inc.), Skyjack (Linamar Corporation), Zhejiang Dingli Machinery Co, Ltd., Haulotte Group SA, Calcanto Werbeagentur, Niftylift (UK) Limited, Manitou BF and others.
