|Electric Off-highway Equipment/Machinery Market - Segmented by Application, Equipment, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)|
|Published: September 1, 2019||Content info: 106 Pages||
The electric off-highway equipment/machinery market is anticipated to register a CAGR of about 4.69% during the forecast period, 2019 - 2024.
Major players have increased their R&D expenditure exponentially, in order to integrate innovation with excellence in performance. The demand for high performance, highly efficient, and safe handling equipment from the end market is expected to make the market more competitive over the forecast period.
The electric off-highway equipment/machinery market is segmented by Powertrain Type ( Pure Electric, and Hybrid), By Equipment/Machinery ( Loaders, Excavators, Dump Trucks, LHD, and Others), By Industry Type (Construction and Mining, and Agricultural (Tractors)), and Geography( North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World)
Hybrid off-Highway Equipment/Machinery Leading the Market
With the introduction of stringent emission regulations by several governments across the world, the demand for hybrid off-highway equipment/machinery has been growing and further driving the manufacturers to launch environment-friendly machinery significantly since 2008.
Since 2017, off-highway equipment/machinery has been majorly adopting hybrid engine (i.e., diesel-electric) for the propulsion system. These diesel-electric hybrid drive systems allow you to run with a slightly smaller engine at a lower rpm. This translates into fuel savings, fewer part movements, and longer engine life. The other advantage of using a hybrid engine, apart from sustainability, is the reduction in vehicle noise.
With the introduction of 2014 EPA regulations of Tier 4 emission standards, off-highway machinery manufacturers have started investing heavily in R&D on electric and hybrid vehicles. However, the power required for the majority of off-highway machinery's function is too high, therefore, the use of fully electric power sources is still limited.
Asia-Pacific is Leading the Electric Off-Highway Equipment/Machinery Market
The electric off-highway equipment/machinery market is led by Asia-Pacific, followed by North America and Europe. The government of China is encouraging people to adopt electric vehicles. The country has already made plans to phase out diesel fuel, which runs the current generation of tractors and construction equipment. The country is planning to completely ban ban diesel and petrol vehicles, by 2040. The electrification of farm machineries is also gaining momentum in the country. For example, China developed its first self-driving electric tractor, labeled with EPOCH. The tractor was produced by Henan Intelligent Agricultural Machinery Innovation Center and was launched in Luoyang.
The US construction industry grew, during the first half of 2018, but slower than 2017. As the construction industry is growing at a slower pace, which is also impacting the demand for construction machinery in the country.The United States is implementing stringent emission regulation, according to United States Environment Protection Agency, in 2017, the off-highway machineries contributed approximately 30% of the total greenhouse gas emission. Owing to which, the off-highway machinery manufacturers are opting electrical option and launching new electric off-highway machineries
The electric off-highway equipment/machinery market is moderately consolidated and domainted by few players such as Caterpillar Inc., Deere & Company, Volve CE, XCMG Group, and among others.The major players have exponentially increased their R&D expenditures, in order to integrate innovation with excellence in performance. The demand for high performance, highly efficient, and safe handling equipment, from the end-user market, is expected to make the market more competitive over the forecast period.
Some of the important players that fall in the 'Others' category are AGCO, CLAAS, CNH Industrial NV, JCB, Kobelco, Yanmar, Atlas Copco AB, and many more
