Emission of Carbon
The construction industry is a vast source of CO2 emissions globally. Buildings represent more than one third of world’s CO2 emissions. World’s 60% of CO2 in construction industry is missioned by the developing economies. Furthermore, the intensities of construction sector’s direct and indirect CO2 emission in the developing regions are larger than the developed countries. Key opportunities to moderate the carbon emissions of the construction sector are low embodied carbon building material and services and the energy efficiency of construction machines. Various norms from regulatory bodies on construction industry, owing to growing rate of CO2 emission is foreseen to get more stringent in near future.
World’s more than 54% population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. Projections show that urbanization, combined with the overall growth of world’s population, could add another 2.5 billion people to urban population by 2050, with close to 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. Many of the fastest growing cities in the world are relatively small urban settlements. Rising urbanization will surge the requirement for infrastructure, and commercial and residential construction. This is expected to ultimately drive the market for construction equipment and the growth is likely to continue for long term.
Manufacturing Segment Expected To Maintain Its Dominance
Construction equipment witnessed highest demand from manufacturing sector in 2017 and held around 30% share of the total market. This sector is also expected to witness highest growth in terms of CAGR in the global construction equipment market over the forecast period. The construction equipment market is segmented into three applications, namely - infrastructure, commercial buildings, and residential buildings.
