Industrial Lifting Equipment – Introduction

Industrial lifting equipment are widely adopted for lifting or moving heavy machinery or equipment from one place to other. Different types of lifting equipment, such as cranes, hoists, forklifts, stackers, and hook-pulleys are witnessing growing adoption for numerous applications across diverse industries, primarily in manufacturing units, construction sites, and warehouses. As these lifting equipment reduce human workload and injuries caused by lifting heavy machinery, they have witnessed an increased traction in recent years. Furthermore, the growing demand for rapid and safe working has necessitated the adoption of industrial lifting equipment across diverse sectors. These factors pushed the industrial lifting equipment market to value roughly US$ 64 Billion in 2018.

Industrial Lifting Equipment – Competitive Landscape

  • In April 2019, Toyota Industries North America formally acquired the assets of Hoist Liftruck Manufacturing LLC, a U.S. manufacturer of high-capacity liftrucks. Toyota has called this acquisition the ideal next step in the expansion of their big truck strategy.

Industrial Lifting Equipment Market Dynamics

Upward Demand for Lifting Loads in Diverse Industries Driving Market Growth

Burgeoning demand for lifting loads in the expanding shipping industry coupled with the rising adoption of forklifts in the warehouse & logistics segment are driving the sales of industrial lifting equipment. As industrial lifting equipment makes loading and unloading of heavy metals products an easy task for shipping purposes, their demand is likely to grow further in the forthcoming years.  Furthermore, mining industry considerably relies on hoists and cranes for several applications, which are also creating lucrative growth opportunities for industrial lifting equipment companies.

High Initial Costs & Slow Speed of Industrial Lifting Equipment Impeding Market Growth  

High initial costs of industrial lifting equipment are increasingly making several companies reluctant towards the adoption of these machines. Moreover, the incapability of industrial lifting equipment to lift up wide range of weights are also restraining their adoption. Additionally, high failure rate and maintenance requirements are other factors impeding the growth in global industrial lifting equipment market.

Advanced Technology Takes Centre Stage as Industries Seek High-Performing Lifting Equipment

Shifting industrial preferences for fast operating, robust, and compact lifting equipment is driving the demand for customized and advanced machinery. Also, the demand for industrial lifting equipment that occupy less space for transit and installing applications is growing rapidly. Consequently, companies are focusing on developing low-cost, and compact industrial lifting equipment that can lift wide range of weights and can operate at a fast pace, in a bid to appeal a wider target audience.
