Construction Equipment Market is Expected to Grow at CAGR of 6.0% from 2012 to 2017: Transparency Market Research
Albany, New York (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
The global construction equipment market is expected to reach USD 192.3 billion by 2017 from USD 143.6billion in 2012, growing at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2012 to 2017. Selecting the most suitable type and size of construction equipments is often cited as having significant effects on the amount of time and vigor required in completing a piece of construction. It is thus very important for construction planners and site supervisors to have a good understanding of the major types of construction equipment that are commonly used in any general construction project.
Construction at various sites is a completely different matter when supplementary tasks in a construction project such as excavation, loading, drilling, blasting, compacting, grading, mixing, paving, lifting erecting, etc. are considered. Take for instance the example of rock excavation. The degree of difficulty of this task largely depends on factors such as rock’s shape, grain size, weathering, planes of weakness, hardness and brittleness of the rock and so forth. These conditions would be naturally different for different places.

So, it is extremely necessary to have correct knowledge of all the special equipment and methods involved in such tasks. When one says construction equipment, the images of giant cement mixers, tower cranes and bulldozers commonly make their presence felt at the back of our memory lanes. These are, however, only a few examples of the plentiful construction equipments known and used worldwide. One could hardly believe that even the difference of a few stories to a building project requires the use of entirely different crane or that two different sizes of drills are used for extremely different purposes.
There’s a huge and demanding market for this industry globally and though ancient architectural giants were all possibly built without using any of these technically smart machines of this generation, the simplest piece of construction today is deemed incomplete without their availability. We mention in the following listing some of the most common construction equipment one gets to see at any construction site. These machines, however, should not be considered as the only ones used. There are many more specific machines working for more specific jobs around you, only you fail to recognize.

Meanwhile, the most commonly used construction equipment:
Cranes: Cranes are commonly used for lifting loads, placing them at appropriate positions and securing material for big construction projects. Cranes are especially beneficial at places that are otherwise unfeasible for access. With the right kind of combined crane and anchor in action, a construction site is able to conduct many activities with utter safety and efficiency. Not to mention the different sizes and forms of cranes that add more efficiency for specific jobs. A crane is characterized by several attachments such as chains, wire ropes, sheaves, wire rope swings, etc. These attachments should be rigged with utter care and precision to ensure maximum safety at the workplace.
Excavator: Excavators are made for use in multiple uses in a construction project. It is characterized by a cab mounted on a pivot and an articulated arm and a bucket. All excavators have buckets that can be customized to fit the specific need. The common places where one could observe the use of excavators include digging trenches, landscaping, demolishing structures, mining, lifting piles, dredging rivers, cutting and heavy lifting.
Hoists and lifts
As the name suggests, these are used for lifting loads and holding them in suspension while they can be moved to places. The most commonly used hoists include wipe rope hoist and chain hoists that consist of pulleys, slings, chains, winches and wipe ropes.
While using these equipments, it is necessary to select the proper form of parts to ensure a proper balance and safe movement of load. The various sizes and forms of the pieces of these equipment are meant for specific purposes.
Forklifts are generally used for lifting and transporting heavy material. As such, they are also called fork trucks or tow motors. They are essential in handling and transporting heavy material safely and quickly to the desired locations.
