Growing industrialization in Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe has led to a booming manufacturing sector in these regions. According to 2019 statistics reported by the World Bank, Europe & Central Asia’s manufacturing sector constitutes 14% of the overall GDP of the region. Similarly, manufacturing activities in North America contribute 11% to the growing GDP of the region.

Additionally, restrictions on international trade are also hampering the demand for crane rentals from the logistics & transportation sector.

The ability of these cranes to operate in narrow spaces and challenging locations is further boosting their demand.

For instance, in May 2019, Wisconsin-based Ideal Crane Rental announced the expansion of its fleet by adding new mobile Liebherr cranes including an LTM 1160-5.2 model, an LTM 1450-8.1 model, and an LTM 1100-5.2 model to its portfolio of crane rentals.
