The global mini excavator market size was valued at $ 6,550.50 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $ 10,243.30 million by 2030.
Mini excavator is construction equipment that provides assistance in performing the tasks of excavating, landscaping, and picking & placing, across construction, mining, and industrial sites. This equipment is compact and has robust performance, and is available in relatively low power ratings compared to heavy excavators. In addition, availability of advanced engines and superior power capabilities has led to use of mini excavators, which can perform optimally in small and narrow spaces. Moreover, mini excavators are track mounted and wheel mounted, providing it a greater maneuverability.
Rise in popularity of robust and compact construction equipment is the major factor that drives growth of the mini excavator market. In addition, versatile benefits associated with mini excavators such as durability, small size, alternative to heavy construction equipment, and superior maneuverability are anticipated to fuel the demand for mini excavators during the forecast period. In addition, major players are focused on developing fully electric mini excavators for agricultural, landscaping & construction, and other applications, which, in turn, is anticipated to propel growth in the mini excavators market.
For instance, in December 2020, AB Volvo launched ‘VOLVO ECR25 ELECTRIC’. Further, significant number of ongoing construction and infrastructure development projects, especially in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA are expected to drive growth in the mini excavators market during the forecast period.
