Global mobile crane sales are in recovery phase, mimicking broader cues in the heavy equipment category. The uncertainty surrounding construction sector continues to impact new sales although long-term prospects remain positive. The updated edition of ‘Mobile Cranes Market’ study by ESOMAR-certified firm Future Market Insights recalibrates the previous findings, adjusting the forecast for COVID-19 impact.
According to the study, recovery in construction, shipping, and oil & gas will be key to mobile crane sales in 2021. Vaccination programs and optimism that China and India may not be heading for a second pandemic wave have raised hopes of a recovery in 2021. However, the slowdown induced by the pandemic will entail a long road to recovery, and in FMI’s survey with manufacturers and stakeholders, this sentiment was palpable.
China Remains a Key Market for Mobile Crane Manufacturers
Early recovery and lowering fears of a second wave have given China an edge over US and Europe in terms of COVID-19 economic recovery. Further, the government in China is heavily investing in road and infra projects, which has led to a spike in heavy equipment machinery.
According to FMI’s analysis, mobile crane manufacturers are looking to strengthen their position in APAC to offset the weakness in US and Europe. China, along with India are likely to see heightened activity from market players during the next decade.

“While increase in requirement from residential, commercial, and industrial construction sectors is spurring the growth of mobile crane manufacturers, availability of new products with wider variety is driving more potential buyers to this industry. This in turn is creating unlimited new opportunities for stakeholders in mobile cranes market,” says an FMI analyst.
Oil & Gas Industry will Provide Long-term Momentum
Oil & gas industry being a dominant end-use industry of mobile cranes, will be key to mobile crane sales in the long-term. According to the report titled “Oil 2020- Analysis” published by the International Energy Agency (IEA) on March, 2020, the global oil demand is expected to rise by a total of 5.7 mb/d, with China and India accounting for about half of growth.
As stated in the report, the world’s oil production capacity is expected to rise by 5.9 mb/d, while Non-OPEC supply will rise by 4.5 mb/d, and OPEC will build another 1.4 mb/d of crude and natural gas liquids capacity. These figures reveal the high potential of the mobile cranes industry.
