Heavy construction equipment specifically refers to heavy construction vehicles and machines that are predominantly designed to perform construction work, which includes earthwork operations and material handling operations. Rise in building & construction activities, increase in focus on improving infrastructure, and recovery in the mining sector are boosting the demand for heavy construction equipment. However, heavy dependency on the global economy and regional political scenario may hamper construction activities. This, in turn, may adversely affect the overall demand for heavy construction equipment. Most of the equipment is procured on the rental basis to carry out various operation across the globe.
