In recent years, the adoption of excavators and wheel loaders has been increasing with the parallel increase in construction activities. These machines account for a significant percentage of the construction equipment market globally. Excavators find their application in below ground and surface level operations; whereas, wheel loaders find extensive use in construction projects, owing to their small size and versatility. The rising adoption of earth moving equipment can be attributed to the advances in technology, increasing demand for better infrastructure facilities, and expanding urban population.
Although earthmoving machines are witnessing an augmented adoption among various end users, the market is subjected to several challenges. High initial investment costs, the high cost of research and development, and stringent emission norms are some of the factors, which may hamper the market’s growth.
