Construction equipment sales worldwide – additional information

The global construction equipment market is forecasted to grow at a steady rate: 2022 construction equipment sales are predicted to amount to over 1 million units across all markets.

Regardless of slowing world economic growth, the Chinese construction equipment has experienced growth across all segments within the construction equipment sector. In 2015, most construction equipments sold in China were from the semi-trailer truck, lift truck and track excavator category. Sales of cranes, in particular, more than doubled within the five years’ period to reach some 100,000 units sold in the country.
