The Construction Machinery and Operator Hire industry generates the bulk of its revenue from work on high-rise projects in the commercial building and apartment construction markets. These projects require cranes, pile-driving and pumping equipment to erect multistorey buildings or install heavy structural components (e.g. steel girders, precast concrete panels and beams and concrete pours). However, since the late 2000s, the largest players have tended to focus on servicing the mining and infrastructure markets, including the erection of transmission equipment, pipelines and wind turbines.
Firms in this industry hire out construction machinery, plant and equipment (mainly cranes) with operators for use on a wide range of construction projects and industrial applications.
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.
