This shift aligns with the broader trend of sustainability, prompting manufacturers to invest in R&D of electric telehandler variants with competitive performance metrics. Furthermore, the adoption of advanced materials and manufacturing techniques is enabling the production of telehandlers that are lighter yet more robust, contributing to better fuel efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.


COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on the telehandler market. The initial phases of the pandemic led to disruptions in production and supply chains. The economic uncertainties compelled the businesses to reconsider capital investments, dampening the demand. However, as the pandemic subsided with operations resuming, there was a resurgence in sales, primarily fueled by the need for quick and efficient material handling in e-commerce, healthcare, and essential goods industries. This scenario underscored the importance of telehandlers in maintaining a seamless supply chain during crises, favoring the market outlook.


Telehandler Market Analysis

The compact telehandlers segment held around 20% share of the telehandler industry in 2022 and is expected to register significant growth through 2032. These machines offer the advantage of compact dimensions while retaining substantial lifting capacities. Their ability to operate in confined spaces and navigate through narrow aisles makes them an ideal choice for construction sites with limited maneuvering space. Additionally, the rise of urban construction projects, characterized by space constraints, has bolstered the demand for compact telehandlers, further solidifying their prominence in the market.


The electric telehandler market size is projected to surpass USD 2 billion by 2032, on account of the increasing environmental concerns and stricter emission regulations. Electric telehandlers offer benefits such as reduced noise pollution, lower operating costs, and zero emissions, making them particularly attractive for indoor applications as well as for environmentally-sensitive areas. The advancements in battery technology have extended the operating time of electric telehandlers, making them a feasible option for various applications that require extended runtime.


North America telehandler market has demonstrated resilience and is anticipated to reach USD 4 billion by 2032. The United States and Canada are witnessing significant construction activities, including residential, commercial, and infrastructure projects. The need for modernizing infrastructure, coupled with the emphasis on sustainable practices, has driven the adoption of telehandlers in the region. Furthermore, the prevalence of advanced manufacturing practices and the presence of key telehandler manufacturers contribute to the robust market landscape in North America.
