Crane Mats Market: Overview
Ground stabilization is critical when working with cranes. If the ground is uneven or soft, there is a possibility the crane may become unstable and tip over. Hence, crane mats are used for providing a level, solid, and steady base for crane operation. Construction and pipeline industries are major end-users of crane mats.
Significant expansion in the global construction sector is driving the demand for crane mats. There has been a shift in population toward urbanized areas, especially in developing nations, due to the increase in population and urbanization. This transition has led to a rise in demand for homes and residential complexes. Additionally, increase in investment in new commercial constructions and infrastructure projects is fueling the demand for crane mats. Furthermore, growth in investments in power transmission and distribution (T&D) networks is driving the crane mats market.
