The global tower crane rental market is projected to top US$ 6.49 Bn in 2021, according to a recent market analysis by ESOMAR-certifies consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI). With a favorable demand outlook, the market is estimated to grow at a 5.7% CAGR, reaching 54,685 units in terms of volume.

Demand for tower crane rental plummeted in 2020 due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Growth in the construction can be attributed to increasing government investments and rising per capita expenditure in home ownership and renovation.
