The truck-mounted cranes market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.15% reaching a market size of US$20,441.387 million in 2029 from US$12,608.071 million in 2022.

Truck-mounted cranes are a particular category of hardware that combines the functionalities of a crane and a truck into one versatile device. This device comprises a versatile crane that is joined to a truck chassis, permitting it to be effortlessly transported to different work sites. Depending on the model the cranes lifting capacity ranges from several tons to several hundred tons. Both single boom and knuckle boom cranes are used by truck mounted cranes. They can lift and move large objects and materials efficiently and safely which makes them useful in the transportation and construction industries. Truck-mounted cranes are becoming increasingly in demand as the construction logistics and goods transportation industries grow.

Growing construction activities

Truck-mounted cranes are the solution to a construction site's heavy lifting needs— steel beams, precast concrete elements, or machinery easily find their way to where they need to be with these cranes. It is not just strength that these cranes offer; it is versatility too. Indeed, apart from other special accessories for support, stability and control during lifting operations at the load site, no additional equipment is needed for transporting them to different job sites— making them mobile and saving time plus resources otherwise spent on arranging separate transportation for a crane. Moreover, operation time is significantly reduced due to quick setup and easy operability of truck-mounted cranes which in turn leads towards completion time happening sooner than expected without compromising quality: The increasing number of ongoing construction activities acts as an impetus towards more demand for such truck-mounted cranes. For instance, the growth rate was 9.3% in 2022 for the US construction spending between November 2020 and November 2021, as stated by the U.S. Census Bureau. In the year 2023, according to the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) project, there are 2476 projects lined up in India with an investment of US$ 1.9 trillion which depicts that India's future demand for truck-mounted cranes will be high.

Booming public infrastructure

The growth of truck mounted cranes market is anticipated to surge with the rise in public infrastructure construction. Public infrastructure means the facilities and structures developed for the general public which includes roads, flyovers, public toilets, etc. The use of truck mounted cranes in urban infrastructure development is essential due to their ability to easily carry raw materials and building blocks in tight spaces. For instance, as per the US infrastructure 2021-22 survey report by White and Case LLP— a US-based law firm with senior-level investors involved in US infrastructure along with public authorities. Over a third (34%) of respondents had invested US$10 billion or more in global infrastructure assets within a year ending Q3 2021.

High demand from the oil & gas industry

Oil and natural gas are commonly associated with the energy sector, which includes goods and activities involved in exploring, extracting, refining moving and delivering these resources. Along, with the benefits that cranes offer to the oil and gas industry truck mounted cranes enhance efficiency by being highly flexible, mobile, efficient and versatile. Moreover, a 6% increase in the world's oil demand is predicted by the International Energy Agency, a nongovernmental organization based in France,.By 2028, it will have reached 105.7 million barrels per day. Furthermore, compared to the average 2.5% annual growth rate observed between 2017 and 2021, the average annual growth rate for the demand for natural gas worldwide is predicted to be 1.6%. the increasing oil and gas industries contribute to the truck-mounted cranes market.

Rising demand in the transportation & logistics industry

In the field of transportation, there is a requirement to manage and transport loads, containers or large equipment. Truck mounted cranes offer a convenient solution, for loading and unloading these items onto trucks or other vehicles. The lifting capacity and manoeuvrability of these cranes play a role in enabling the transportation sector to handle a variety of cargo efficiently. While handling loads can be a time-consuming task the lifting capabilities of these cranes help expedite and streamline the process. Their adaptability makes them well-suited for areas within transportation like shipping, logistics and freight operations. A rise in the transportation of large machinery and cargo will fuel the increasing need for truck mounted cranes. For instance, based on data from the Investment Information and Credit Rating Agency in 2023, the logistics sector saw a 5.8% increase in revenues in Q1 FY2023 over Q4 FY2022, with an increased rate of 7 to 9% predicted for 2023.

Asia Pacific is witnessing exponential growth during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is expected to have a substantial share in the global marine deck crane market due to the fast industrialisation process, extended construction and infrastructure development in China and India, and improved goods transportation example, the Indian government plans to spend INR 50 trillion on infrastructure development. Moreover, the Chinese government worked on the "One Belt, One Road" initiative, which aims to build roads, bridges, and other infrastructure that connects Europe, Asia, India, and Pakistan. A huge expansion of the market is expected due to all of these planned and ongoing infrastructure development measures and construction activities. For instance, in 2022, the Indian government launched the "National Logistics Policy (NLP)" to promote the seamless movement of goods, overcoming transport-related challenges, and the significant reduction in time and cost, and is targeted to reduce the logistics costs from 13-14 percent of GDP to single digits. Such progress will bolster the demand for truck-mounted cranes in the Asia Pacific, thereby increasing regional market growth.

  • In June 2022, the new LOGLIFT forestry crane generation, which boasts better and safer performance as well as increased uptime, is introduced by Hiab, a division of Cargotec. The Z boom crane LOGLIFT 18Z, which has a maximum outreach of 10.4 meters and a maximum lifting capacity of 18 tonne meters (tm), is the first crane that can be ordered.  The boom's new shape results in a stronger crane with a wider outreach. Hoses with completely protected oil distribution and cables are positioned inside the boom system of the 18 tm crane to lessen the possibility of unplanned downtime. Bigger hydraulic pipes increase flow and prevent fatigue in warm weather.
