 Used Construction Machinery Market Size to grow by USD 27.33 billion between 2023-2027

According to a research report “ Used Construction Machinery Market” by Product (Crane, Excavator, Material handling equipment, Others) Application (Commercial, Residential, Infrastructure) Geography (APAC, North America, Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa)- Global Forecast to 2027 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 27.33 billion, at a CAGR of  5.3% during the forecast period. The Used Construction Machinery Market is experiencing significant growth due to the increasing demand for cost-effective solutions in the manufacturing and mining industries. With strict regulations and high labor costs leading to the closure of numerous businesses in Europe and the US, an abundance of secondhand machinery has become available. This trend is particularly prominent in emerging economies such as China, India, and Pakistan, where Asian contractors and mining companies are actively seeking to acquire affordable, high-quality secondhand European construction machinery, including excavators, to meet their infrastructure development needs.

By Product, the Crane segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

The commercial sector, comprising buildings such as shops, hotels, restaurants, offices, schools, hospitals, and industrial structures, is a significant contributor to the used construction machinery market. This segment's growth is attributed to the increasing investments in commercial infrastructure by both developed and developing economies during the forecast period. In the Middle East, countries like the UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia are witnessing robust expansion in their commercial construction markets. Notably, in September 2020, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company secured two contracts worth USD245 million to modernize main oil lines and facilities within the UAE, underscoring the region's commitment to commercial development.

By Application, Commercial  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

The crane segment of the used construction machinery market is poised for steady growth, driven by the escalating demand for cranes in construction and industrial applications. This trend is particularly evident in the construction of chemical, energy, power distribution, utilities, and other industrial plants, as well as the increasing number of high-rise residential and commercial buildings. The Asia Pacific region and Nordic countries, including Sweden and Finland, are expected to significantly contribute to the expansion of the used crane market in the construction sector during the forecast period.

APAC is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The used construction machinery market in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is experiencing robust growth, driven by escalating construction activities in emerging economies such as India and China. The region's used construction machinery market is anticipated to expand steadily during the forecast period, fueled by the demand for new infrastructure development to accommodate the burgeoning urban population. Notably, in 2020, the Indian government earmarked USD8.58 billion for the Odisha Economic Corridor Project, which includes the establishment of 14 clusters in industrial areas like Gopalpur, Bhubaneswar, and Kalinganagar, and Paradip, Kendrapada, Dhamra, and Subarnarekha. This significant investment underscores the immense potential for growth in the construction sector in India and the subsequent demand for used construction machinery.
