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.
  • In April 2019, Manitowoc launched best-in-class Grove GHC140 telescope crawler crane, the latest addition to its line of Grove Hydraulic Crawler. It features improved load capacities that facilitates users to complete heavier lifts with same maneuverability as the smaller models.
  • In March 2019, Cargotec Corporation’s MacGregor won an order from CNOOC for the supply of on-vessel mooring systems to a deepwater Floating Production Unit (FPU). The delivery of the system is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2020. Additionally, the company’s subsidiary Navis completed its acquisition of Cetus Labs, Inc., a provider of web-based terminal operating systems (TOS) for small container and mixed cargo terminals.
  • In March 2019, Columbus McKinnon Corporation, one of the leading players in the crane and hoist market, announced the addition of explosion-protected SH Ex wire rope hoists to its advanced hoist product portfolio. The new STAHL CraneSystems also provide the benefits of flexible configuration, compact design, spark resistance, smooth operation, low maintenance, and model variants.
  • In March 2019, Konecranes announced its plans to establish data science laboratory in France, as a part of the company’s initiatives to digitalize products, operations, and service to reap the several advantages of industrial internet.

Other leading players operating in the crane and hoist market include Konecranes, Zoomlion, XCMG, ZPMC, Mammoet, Ingersoll Rand, Liebherr, Tadano, Terex, EMC, Voima Cranes and Components Pvt. Ltd., and Palfinger.
