The crane market is expected to show healthy growth with a CAGR of more than 5% in the assessment period from 2019 to 2029. A new FMI report found that the Covid-19 pandemic is likely to adversely affect the industry, largely due to a sharp drop in construction and infrastructure activity during the outbreak. Tower crane types are in high demand and are expected to total around $ 20 billion over the forecast period.

“The growing need for improvements in building structures in various industries such as oil and gas, telecommunications and manufacturing should support the market and increase the demand for products for rough-terrain cranes,” said the FMI analyst.
