Increasing use of 3-6 cubic meters bucket capacity excavators

The 3-6 cubic meters excavators held around 33% of the industry share in 2021. Bucket capacity excavators between 3-6 cubic meters is useful in the mining sector owing to the ability to reduce the number of cycles it takes to a fill dump truck. This feature contributes to enhancing productivity and efficiency of the machine across mining sites. Rise in surface mining activities and a strong demand for coal in developing nations will fuel the product deployment of excavators with 3-6 cubic meters bucket capacity.

Need for cost-efficient construction equipment

The rental application segment in excavator market is expected to grow at 5% CAGR between 2022 and 2030. Renting services offer a cost-efficient solution for project contractors and companies to gain access to construction equipment for a short duration of time. Efforts to streamline cost of overall construction operations and additional benefits such as maintenance assurance will make renting services an optimized solution for construction projects. The introduction of new rental service providers that offer a wide range of excavator options will boost the industry forecast.
