Recent demand growth and price fluctuations for key inputs in the production of gantry cranes have slightly reduced buyer negotiating power. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the procurement of Gantry Cranes in its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

The average price for gantry cranes is forecast to continue rising as demand continues to rise and the cost of production increases

Gantry cranes have a buyer power score of 3.6 out of 5. This score reflects moderate buyer power resulting from the product's widespread availability and the high level of price competition in the market. Recent demand growth and price fluctuations for key inputs have slightly reduced buyer negotiating power.

In the three years to 2014, the price of gantry cranes has been increasing largely due to a rise in demand, specifically from the industrial sector and the construction and automobile industries. Suppliers are also expected to see a rise in input costs, particularly in the price of aluminum and steel, during the same period. “The prices for gantry cranes will likely trend upward as suppliers pass off a portion of their increased input costs to buyers,” according to IBISWorld business research analyst Jordan Weinstein.

Fortunately for buyers, the rise in demand and input costs for gantry cranes will not lead to significant price increases. An expected rise in imports will allow buyers to purchase less expensive machinery abroad, which will put pricing pressure on domestic suppliers. “As competition from imports grows, suppliers that drastically raise price as demand rises will lose clients to those vendors offering the machinery for less,” says Weinstein.

Price aside, buyer power is further aided by the widespread availability of gantry cranes and strong competition in the market. IBISWorld estimates that there are over 750 vendors operating in the market in 2014, providing buyers with a healthy number of capable suppliers to satisfy their needs. Major vendors include Beacon Industries Inc., Spanco Inc. and MSC Industrial Direct Co. Inc. For more information, visit IBISWorld’s Gantry Cranes procurement category market research report page.
