The trend of incorporating additional accessories in cranes for specific applications, such as manufacturing, forestry, oil & gas, and transportation, is providing a positive outlook to the market growth. Cranes are witnessing a rapid demand across these industry verticals owing to enhanced efficiency and improved operating performance compared to conventional construction tools. Flexibility provided by these machines to attach extra controls, motors, and shafts is one of the major factors boosting the proliferation of aftermarket products.

Ongoing R&D activities and technological developments to reduce the wear & tear of construction equipment may hamper the industry. The high initial purchase cost associated with cranes is encouraging the customer demand for fail-proof machines with minimum maintenance cost. In response to the demand, crane manufacturers are focusing on integrating sensor technologies into the machines for reduced downtime, impacting the proliferation of aftermarket products. Moreover, high servicing and installation costs associated with aftermarket products are challenging the industry growth.

The crane aftermarket is expected to witness a slow growth due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020. The construction industry has been severely impacted due to nationwide lockdowns and movement restrictions in several major cities across the globe. Social distancing practices to avoid further spread of the virus have posed industry challenges such as disruptions in manufacturing and logistics sectors. This has caused a complete halt in infrastructure building activities, impacting the market growth. Moreover, growing financial insecurities among infrastructure sector players across the globe are expected to hamper the market size over the coming years.

According to the market analysis, the replacement parts segment held a higher market share in 2020. This segment includes the revenue generated from gears, shafts, controls, motors, boom, and hoist. The market growth can be attributed to the cost benefits provided by replacement parts. Aftermarket replacement parts offer more installation flexibility at lower costs compared to OEM products. High maintenance costs and low availability of OEM spare parts in semi-urban areas are further augmenting the crane aftermarket size.

Shifting consumer focus toward low noise and low energy consumption is augmenting the sales of aftermarket crane gears in the industry. Aftermarket gears provide advantages, such as compatibility with several crane models and deliver high lifting speeds and low maintenance, spurring development in these markets. In response to the growing market trend, manufacturers are investing huge amounts in R&D and product development. For instance, in 2020, Konecranes invested USD 41.44 million for product innovation and to provide aftermarket services to its customers.

According to the industry forecast, the mobile cranes segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% in the U.S. owing to increasing significance of mobile cranes in applications with limited space. Mobile crane mounted on a movable carrier offers high flexibility and operability in narrow spaces. The increasing deployment of mobile cranes in power distribution centers for construction and maintenance activities is expected to propel the market.

Growing requirement of mobile cranes in several industry verticals is propelling the crane aftermarket growth. All-terrain cranes are expected to dominate the industry size owing to their capability to operate efficiently in smooth and rough terrains. The four-wheel drive system with hydraulically powered telescopic boom shafts in all-terrain cranes aids in heavy-lifting applications in harsh weather conditions. The growing usage of all-terrain cranes will propel the market demand.

Increasing demand in Asia Pacific due to growing infrastructural developments

The Asia Pacific crane aftermarket is expected to reach over 3.5 billion in 2026. The industry in the region is witnessing growth due to the rising government and private sector spending on infrastructure development. The real estate industry in India is rapidly growing due to the high demand for residential apartments. Furthermore, the increasing deployment of cranes in utility distribution facilities in the region is supporting the market growth in Asia Pacific over the forecast timeline.

Infrastructure building projects adopted by the government of China for the development of critical infrastructure, such as roads, bridges and power distribution grids, will provide robust opportunities for the market. Additionally, high price sensitivity among consumers will propel the industry growth in these markets.

Business expansion and partnerships are the key strategies adopted by industry players

The market players are adopting strategies, such as partnerships and expansion of operations, to gain a competitive edge in the aftermarket. For instance, in January 2020, Konecranes partnered with Yilport Holdings to provide aftermarket services of refurbishing 23 cranes at the Taranto Port in Italy. This aided the company to expand its aftermarket services business in Europe.

Additionally, market leaders are also focusing on expanding their distribution channel partnerships to cater to the high demand for aftermarket replacement parts. For instance, in April 2020, Spierings Mobile Cranes announced Kanoo Cranes as the exclusive distributor of its spare parts in Oman, Bahrain, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia.

Key players operating in the crane aftermarket share include Manitowoc, Konecranes, Altec, Terex Corporation Group, Hiab, XCMG, Zoomilion, Tadano Ltd., Palfinger AG, Kobelco Construction Machinery, Sany Group Group, Manitex International, and Elliott Equipment Company.
