The crawler crane market was valued at US$2.807 billion in 2021.

A crawler crane is a mobile crane designed to move on crawlers instead of wheels. It is typically used for heavy lifting operations on construction sites, ports, and other industrial locations. The crawler crane consists of a crane superstructure mounted on a crawler chassis, including the crane's boom, which can be telescopic or lattice, and a counterweight that provides stability during lifting operations. The crawler crane is used for constructing bridges, buildings, wind turbines, mining, and lifting heavy equipment and materials on industrial sites. The increase in the construction of infrastructure and renewable energy projects and increasing mining operations will drive the growth of the crawler crane market.

The growing construction and mining activities are augmenting the crawler crane market growth.

The increase in urbanization, growing infrastructure development, and construction activities such as building roads, bridges, airports, and commercial buildings have led to a higher demand for heavy machinery such as crawler cranes, which are essential for lifting and moving heavy loads in construction sites. Construction of renewable energy projects such as wind farms, solar power plants, and hydroelectric facilities requires heavy lifting and installation of equipment, and crawler cranes are well-suited to these tasks due to their huge size and lifting capacity. The demand for new infrastructure and sustainable projects will boost the demand for the crawler cranes market. According to the World Economic Forum's (WEF) infrastructure market report for 2019-2020, the value of global infrastructure projects in the pipeline was $9.9 trillion, with most projects located in Asia and the Middle East. The growing demand for minerals and metals worldwide has led to an increase in mining activities, and crawler cranes are essential in the mining industry as they are used for lifting heavy loads and equipment during the mining process due to their heavy load-bearing capacity and the ability to work in challenging terrains and harsh weather conditions. The increasing need for faster and more efficient mining operations is expected to accelerate the growth of the crawler crane market. The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported in 2021 that global mining production increased by 5% in 2019, with a total production value of $2.2 trillion. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) reported in 2021 that the mining industry is responsible for over 50% of the world's exports of goods and services. This demonstrates that the crawler crane market has a great demand.

 The Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a significant market share. 

The Asia Pacific region is experiencing significant growth in the crawler crane market due to increased demand for the construction of residential and commercial buildings, roads, bridges, and other infrastructure and demand for minerals and metals, especially in emerging economies like China and India. In 2020, the Chinese government announced its "New Infrastructure" plan to invest over RMB 20 trillion (approximately USD 3 trillion) in infrastructure projects such as railways, highways, and airports over the next five years. In December 2019, the Indian government launched the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) with a total investment of around USD 1.7 trillion to develop infrastructure sectors, such as highways, airports, and urban infrastructure. In March 2019, the Indian government announced the "National Mineral Policy," which aims to increase mineral production in the country while ensuring the sustainable development of the mining sector. These factors add to the crawler crane market growth in the Asia Pacific region.
