The Construction Equipment Rental and Leasing industry suffered greatly from the reduction in private and public investment in construction projects brought on by the economic downturn. This contributed to a collapse in demand for the industry's services immediately prior to the start of the five-year period. Therefore, the past five years have been a period of recovery. The construction sector is slowly rebuilding as both private and public investment is returning to the sector. This is expected to result in the industry growing in four of the five years through 2014-15.
Firms in this industry rent and lease out construction equipment such as cranes, crane lorries, scaffolding, work platforms, bulldozers, graders and excavators. The hire of machinery or equipment with an operator is not included in the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
