Construction Equipment Rental Market Size, Share and Growth by 2027

Equipment rental

Construction equipment rentals can be explained as the process of renting out construction equipment for a particular time frame under terms and conditions about their usage by signing a contract. They are used to carry out heavy operations at construction mining sites. The market for construction equipment rentals is well poised and is estimated to reach $ 106,422.0 million by 2027, globally, with growth in CAGR of 4.2% from 2020 to 2027.

A major factor for the growth of the Equipment rental market is due to the demand in the construction & mining activities of developing countries in the Latin America and African regions. When you rent the equipment you are free from costs that otherwise arise like for maintenance when you are not using the equipment and also the high initial investment required to buy the equipment contributing to the growth of the global market.

Some factors that contribute to the stagnation of the Equipment market rental size globally are the lack of skilled labor, mining and construction work reaching a point of saturation, and to add to that the entry of the pandemic. 

The pandemic resulted in a complete halt or decrease in the number of construction activities due to the lockdown rules. As a result of which, end-users of the rental equipment canceled their contracts with rental companies. However, the construction sector is bound to pick up the pace and go back to its full potential once the sites are reopened post-pandemic. This will lead to the functioning of the equipment rental companies with a renewed pace and also to their growth in the global market. 

The development of innovative and advanced equipment that can function through the internet will contribute to eliminating the shortage of skilled laborers and also improve the safety of operators and end-users. These elements are predicted to add more value to the global construction equipment rental market and also play a role in its expansion.
