  • Published Date: May 22, 2020

Crane Aftermarket size is set to be over USD 10 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The high cost of new cranes coupled with expensive OEM replacement is expected to propel the demand for aftermarket crane spare parts. The growing number of new players in the crane rental business will spur the market share of aftermarket products and services.

The growing deployment of mobile and gantry cranes in transportation and logistics sectors will support the crane aftermarket growth. Cranes are being increasingly deployed on ports for heavy container and shipment lifting. According to a 2018 report by the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics, five leading ports in the U.S. including Los Angeles, New York & New Jersey deploy more than 700 cranes utilized for container lifting.
