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.
