How Bobcat EMEA Region Boosted Up Their Skid Steer Loader Sales by 12.7%: Fact.MR

skid steer loader market by region

Award winning market research company Fact.MR’s latest research report on skid steer loaders projects that the market is poised to register stable growth in 2021 over 2020, with long-term growth prospects appearing largely optimistic. A modest CAGR exceeding 3% is anticipated for the 2021-2031 forecast period. Supply chain disruptions experienced during the pandemic crisis rendered growth prospects sluggish in the previous year.

Easing of lockdowns since Q4 2020 have led to a resurgence of key end-use industries, most notably construction and infrastructure development. Hence, skid steer loader sales have rebounded in recent months. Prominent manufacturers are targeting the Asia-Pacific region in order to make stupendous gains in the upcoming forecast period.

India represents lucrative growth opportunities, with the domestic construction industry set to emerge as the 3rd largest by 2025. As part and parcel of its self-reliance program, the Indian government has recently unveiled the Affordable Rental Housing Complex (ARHC) scheme to promote housing in forthcoming years. This is likely to stimulate demand for skid steer rollers in the near-term. The industry is expected to grow at over 11% by 2021-end.

Likewise, the Chinese construction sector is poised to generate credible revenue streams for skid steer loader manufacturers. Since the latter half of the pandemic, the government has been issuing construction bonds to keep projects afloat, thus buoying the industry out of a predicted recession. As of July 2020, nearly 30% of the bonds were utilized to fund industrial parks, town construction projects and infrastructure development.

“As the global population experiences a meteoric rise, massive infrastructure projects are on the cards, with over two out of five megacity projects expected to accommodate over 10 million inhabitants by the end of the decade. Hence, sales of skid steer loaders equipped with advanced software are expected to proliferate,” says the Fact.MR analyst.
