Report Digest


Cranes and hoists are common material handling equipment used in wide range of industries including construction, mining, shipping, automotive & railway, and others. Cranes are used for lifting and lowering loads or moving the loads horizontally, while hoists, designed to lift or lower material, can be a part of a crane or be installed alone. Cranes equipped with hoist ropes, chains, and sheaves are primarily used for lifting heavy loads and conveying them to different locations. Rapid infrastructural development and expansion of freight transport have been directly influencing the demand for cranes and hoist in the recent years. With growing need to reduce time as well as fuel consumption in many industries, crane and hoist manufacturers are increasingly focusing on product innovations through implementation of advanced technologies which will help meet the modern-day consumer demand.

Crane and Hoist Market – Notable Developments

  • In April 2019, Kito Corporation, a key player of crane and hoist market announced its plans to set a new production subsidiary in Thailand with an aim to reduce the production costs of its core hoist products and make better use of the supply chain in Thailand. It is also expected to reduce costs for raw materials.
