With uncontrolled population growth, physical spaces have become more confined, and carrying out the digging operations is becoming difficult. Compact excavators have emerged as a key automotive vehicle that can help in excavation of soil and other earthen materials in cramped up spaces. With the trend of miniaturization influencing the global automotive sector, companies are actively partaking in the production of compact excavators. While the conventional excavators have been struggling to reach the narrowed spots between buildings and tight spaces, compact excavators are being predominantly used in such digging purposes.

Manufacturers of compact excavators are witnessing a considerable rise in demand from individuals as well as local construction companies. New compact excavators entering the market are being designed to meet the earth-moving requirements of the future. The comfort of operating compact excavators is further driving the working professionals in the construction industry towards them. Moreover, the function of changing the attachments on the compact excavators is enabling the process of high-level excavations. Large construction companies are replacing the conventional heavy duty excavators with compact excavators to reap high profit margins from low fuel consumption and lesser carbon emission. Better maneuverability, reduced noise emission, and operational ease are a few other factors driving the demand for compact excavators in the global construction industry.

According to a recently report, the global market for compact excavators is likely to expand at a 2.7% CAGR in terms of volume during the forecast period, 2017-2026. The report further projects that by the end of 2026, over 173.6 Bn units of compact excavators will be sold across the globe.

The report has analyzed the global compact excavators market on the basis of their end-use across industrial verticals. The findings reveal that nearly three-fourth share of compact excavators sold in the global market will be used in construction sector. The demand for compact excavators in mining sector is also expected to gain traction towards the latter half of the forecast period. With respect to the operating weights, higher end-use in construction sector will be driving the demand for compact excavators with 4000-10000 lbs. capacity. By the end of 2026, over 80 Bn compact excavators with 4000-10000 lbs. operating weight capacity are expected to be sold globally.

The report has also projected that tail swing compact excavators will be a top-selling product in the global market throughout the forecast period. On the other hand, zero tail swing compact excavators are expected to register a relatively high CAGR of 2.8% in terms of volume. On the basis of motor-type analysis, the demand for compact excavators with electric motors will surge in the latter half of the forecast period. Diesel compact excavators are expected to register largest revenue share of nearly 90% in the global compact excavators market through 2026.

The report has profiled leading players in the global compact excavators market. Companies namely, Hitachi Construction Machinery, Caterpillar, Deere & Company, Volvo Construction Equip., Komatsu, Yanmar Holdings Co. Ltd., Doosan Bobcat, Inc., Kubota Corp., JCB, Inc., Nagano Industry Co., Case Construction Equipment, KATO Works, Kobelco Construction Machinery U.S.A Inc., Çukurova Ziraat, Bharat Earth Movers, Sany Group, LiuGong Machinery, Terex, Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology, and XCMG are observed as the leading manufacturers of compact excavators in the global market. Over the forecast period, most of these players are expected to expand their businesses on the back of product development by integrating advanced excavation technologies and equipment in the vehicles.
