LONDON, June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2016 edition of the report provides a Comprehensive & Insightful Comparative SWOT Framework Analysis on the Global 7 leading Construction Equipment manufacturers amid an emerging market scenario with the global construction equipment market continuing to face significant headwinds with a third straight year of global demand contraction in 2015 for construction equipment with continued economic challenges & pressures across key emerging markets led by China, Brazil & Russia and a difficult global macroeconomic environment marked by financial markets volatility, continued weakness in commodity prices, plummeting of crude oil prices and continued geo-political conflict.
The Chinese growth engine; which has led the pace of the market for over a decade now; is undergoing a major overhaul with the Chinese market for construction equipment having almost halved in 2015 with economic growth slowing down to the lowest in over 25 years amid continued financial markets volatility as the country strives to transition to a more consumption driven economy with limited reliance on manufacturing & heavy industries which has impacted the industry significantly. Brazil & Russian economies, on the contrary, have been impacted severely by the energy sector downturn, in addition, to the ongoing political crisis in Brazil with pressures likely to prevail across these economies over near term. Additionally, the ongoing mining slump with continued weakness in commodity prices and the downturn in energy sector with oversupply driven, sustained slide in crude oil prices have collectively further exacerbated and worsened the situation for the industry. The North American market has been the only saving grace as of-late with the U.S. Economy continuing to prove itself as the stable cornerstone of the global economy with steady economic growth momentum followed by Europe which continues to make slow economic recovery. The OECD & IMF, however, have already cut their global economic growth forecasts for 2016 and the IMF has termed the global economy as highly vulnerable to adverse shocks in its outlook for 2016.
The long-term industry fundamentals & growth drivers, however, remain strong and robust with significant role played by the industry in economic growth and significant investments likely to be made by emerging nations towards infrastructure development over medium term to support economic growth and with rapid urbanization trend. Amongst traditional markets, the U.S. market is likely to spearhead market direction going forward & will hold the key to shaping the near to medium term global market outlook. Additionally, massive investments are going to be required in the U.S. towards infrastructure rebuilding & repair over medium term.
