Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Autonomous Construction Equipment Market size is projected to cross USD 312 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 19% during the forecast period i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of autonomous construction equipment was over USD 15 Billion. The growth of this market can be ascribed on the back of increasing urbanization. As urbanization grows, there might be pressure to reduce emissions and improve air quality in cities. Moreover, autonomous construction equipment might play a significant role in this by utilizing electric and hybrid powertrains, which emit less pollution than diesel-powered equipment, which is predicted to contribute to the market expansion. For instance, in India, the annual pace of urbanization grew by over 1% in 2021.

Moreover, increasing technological advancement in the field of autonomous construction equipment is estimated to actively contribute to market growth during the projected period. Such as the introduction of sensors, GPS, and machine learning algorithms, among other technological advancements, have made it feasible for heavy machinery to function independently. With the use of these technologies, machines can be programmed to carry out daily duties more accurately and precisely.

Autonomous Construction Equipment Segmentation

Application (Road Construction, Building Construction)

The building construction segment in the autonomous construction equipment market is estimated to acquire the largest revenue share of 50% during the forecast time period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the growing population worldwide. Such as, the world's population continues to grow, and the need for additional housing, businesses, and infrastructure is growing, driving demand for autonomous construction equipment in the construction sector. Additionally, thanks to advanced sensors and algorithms, autonomous devices can perform activities with a high degree of consistency and precision, minimizing the need for rework and improving overall quality in the construction activity.

Type (Partial/Semi-Autonomous and Fully Autonomous)

Autonomous construction equipment market from the partial/semi-autonomous segment is predicted to account for the highest CAGR by the end of 2035. This growth is driven by a growing shortage of skilled workers around the world. Partially or semi-autonomously heavy equipment has the technical ability to automatically perform certain tasks without direct human control. Some sectors, such as mining and construction, are suffering from shortages of skilled workers. Semi-autonomous or semi-autonomous heavy equipment reduces the need for human operators and can perform some tasks faster and more accurately than human operators, increasing productivity and efficiency on the job site. This is poised to create lucrative growth opportunities for the sector in the coming years. As of the study, the sales of the semi-autonomous segment are predicted to reach 6.3 billion by the end of 2026.
