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

The global truck loader crane market size is estimated to reach ~USD 20 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In addition to this, in the year 2022, the market size of truck loader crane was ~USD 11 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increase in construction activity. Construction is increasing owing to the desire for better and larger homes and workplaces. Building permits in the US grew by around 14% in February 2023, reaching a seasonally adjusted annual pace of about 2 million. Meanwhile, from a nearly three-year low of roughly 722,000 in January, single-family authorizations increased by about 8% to nearly 777,000 in February.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of truck loader cranes include the rising demand for cranes and especially mobile cranes. Demand is being driven by ongoing road, metro rail, and infrastructure improvements as well as the pending need for routine maintenance of cement factories, power plants, and oil refineries as the lockout is relaxing. The demand for mobile cranes in the 20–60 tons range as well as the higher 80–100 tons range for all-terrain models is expected to increase in India. The demand forecast for the year 2021 was around 50–60 units for the 20–60 tons category and nearly 30–35 units for the 80–100 tons category.

Global Truck Loader Crane Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand and Trade of Industrial Equipment– Industrial machinery development keeps pace with technological innovation. Almost all manufacturing, building, and manufacturing operations today are in need of industrial equipment. In 2021 the total export and import value of industrial machinery and equipment in Canada were around USD 34,000 and USD 69,000, respectively.

  • Higher Manufacturing of Automobiles–Truck loader cranes are huge machinery and are used in the automotive industry for loading and unloading heavy vehicles. They are also used in moving cables, engines, tires, and various other materials. In the world, around 80 million automobiles were produced in 2021, which is approximately 1% higher from 2020.

  • Increasing Constructional Activities All Across the World – It is one of the most crucial pieces of machinery in the construction sector. It can lift or lower big goods and carry them from one location to another using its hoist rope, wire ropes, and sheaves. They are now frequently seen at any location where heavy lifting is done. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that construction spending is expected to reach an annual rate of USD 1,825.7 billion in January 2023.

  • Rapidly Growing Urbanization – Rising urbanization and expansion of smart cities is expected to boost the demand for energy, housing, and other commodities. Which in turn is going to push various industries, such as construction, oil & gas, manufacturing, and others.  According to the United Nations, as of 2018, 55% of the world's population resides in cities, and by 2050, that number is projected to rise to 68%. Moreover, research suggests that by 2050, there may be an additional 2.5 billion urban residents worldwide.
