Aerial Work Platform (AWP) Market will expand at a CAGR of 12.0% Between 2021 and 2031 :FMI Study

Increasing the number of urban and rural infrastructure projects to meet the needs of the increasing population around the world is generating endless growth avenues for the aerial work platforms market. According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the aerial work platform market is expected to surpass US$ 7.09 Bn by 2021. The demand for aerial work platforms is increasingly growing in the general infrastructure and manufacturing sectors. It has become popular between small & giant construction firms and maintenance agents.

In addition, massive government spending on infrastructure projects such as highways, rail, water conservation, and power generation is likely to create lucrative business opportunities over the next few years. However, low availability of qualified machine operators and massive costs incurred during the procurement of equipment are some of the factors that might impede the growth.
