The U.K. construction equipment market size by volume to reach 65,010 units by 2029

In 2023, the earthmoving segment accounted for the largest market share, 52.6%, of the UK construction equipment market. Excavators accounted for the largest share, 53.3%, in the earthmoving segment.

The UK government is undertaking extensive infrastructure redevelopment projects, encompassing expansions in ports, railway lines, roadways, and highways nationwide. The recently unveiled 2023 National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline outlines substantial investments projected over the next decade in critical economic and social infrastructure. The pipeline forecasts around USD 81 billion in planned investments between 2023/24 and 2024/25 for major infrastructure and construction projects. This continuous investment is anticipated to bolster demand for construction equipment in the coming years significantly.


Recent Development

  • In November 2023, the UK Trade Remedies Authority initiated two new investigations into the import of excavators from China in response to requests from JCB. The investigations aimed to determine if the imports were being sold at unfairly low prices due to dumping or subsidization, potentially causing harm to JCB’s business and the UK industry.
  • In 2023, XCMG’s aerial lift and telehandler division chose Genesis Equipment Sales, a new addition to the Ballyvesey Holdings group, as its exclusive distributor in the UK.
  • In January 2024, Mecalac appointed Alfreton-based EP Industries as a new dealer for its range of road-rail excavators.

The Spain Construction Equipment Market Size by Volume to Reach 34,438 Units by 2029

Crawler excavators account for a strong market share of the Spain construction equipment market. These excavators are used for construction, mining, and waste management projects. In 2023, the Spanish government increased its focus on nickel and copper mining projects. Rio Narcea, a mining company, announced reopening the Aguablanca mine for a nickel mining project. The country has rich mining deposits of nickel and copper in the Monesterio region. The demand for these two metals in the market is rising due to a surge in demand for electric vehicles. Investments by the Spanish government under the RRP for the digitalization of public organizations are expected to support construction activities across the country.


Key Highlights

The OEMs in the Spain construction equipment market have diverse product offerings and started focusing on compact electric equipment –

  • Komatsu announced the launch of PC33E-6, a new 3-ton class electric mini excavator equipped with a lithium-ion battery, in 2023. The PC33E-6 can save more than its body mass in CO2 emissions yearly.
  • In May 2023, DEVELON launched two 6-ton mini excavators, DX62R-7 and DX63-7. Both models are powered by a new D24 Stage V-compliant diesel engine providing 44.3 kW (59.4 HP) of power. 
  • The Bobcat L85 Wheel Loader was delivered to the Spanish recycling company Rua Papel Gestion. The machine handles materials fed to presses.

Companies in the Spain construction equipment market are also adopting new strategies to capitalize on the growing demand for construction equipment.

  • Fusion Fuel and Toyota Material Handling Espana, SA, announced a collaboration in March 2023 to develop a green hydrogen fuel cell forklift market in Spain.
  • Yanmar has made several strategic acquisitions to expand its business in North America and Europe. Its manufacturing locations include Grand Rapids, the US, Crailsheim, Spain, Saint-Dizier, France, and Chikugo, Japan.
  • The forklift sales were hampered in 2020 due to COVID-19, and further changes in engine regulations pushed stocks of forklifts in 2021. Many forklifts stocked in 2020 were sold in 2021, with a change in engine regulation. This resulted in a sharp rise in sales of forklifts in 2021 & 2022. The change in Anti- particulate filters & catalytic reduction systems are major changes in new engine regulations of forklifts in Spain.
  • In July 2023, Manitou Group announced a new loading dock facility dedicated to the final inspection of its machines. The facility includes 1,300 square meters of solar panel roof covering and employs almost 30 people. More than 50 machines are shipped worldwide daily.
