Market Synopsis

Autonomous Construction Equipment Market

Autonomous Earth Moving Equipment Holds Potential to Unleash Market Potential in Coming Years

At present, construction vehicle leads the pack of autonomous construction equipment followed by material handling equipment. Dumps trucks and hauling trucks were the first commercial breed of autonomous construction equipment to work on job sites. For instance, 73 autonomous hauling trucks were used at the iron-ore mine in Pilbara, Western Australia in 2015. Besides construction vehicles autonomous material handling equipment including cranes, forklifts, hoists, and conveyors among others already experiencing paradigm shift towards automation. However, with companies testing their autonomous shovels, diggers and dozers extensively, autonomous earth moving equipment estimated to surpass construction vehicles and material handling equipment in terms of market value in the next few years.

Autonomous Construction Equipment Market

Construction Equipment Gradually Shifting from Partial to Fully Autonomous Stature

Autonomy of construction equipment is a slow and continuous process and is trying to catch pace with development in autonomous cars. However, the amount of research & development involved in driverless cars is way ahead compared to construction equipment. Autonomous construction equipment lacks depth of artificial intelligence which is a prime requirement for any fully autonomous machines. Achieving partial autonomy was a big milestone and construction equipment expected to continue with partial autonomy before they get ready for complete independence. Consequently, partial autonomous construction equipment leads the market and projected to continue their dominance throughout the forecast period. However, beyond forecast period fully autonomous construction equipment projected to surpass partial equipment making them the things of past.

Autonomous Construction Equipment Market

Construction and Mining Industry in Asia Pacific Creating Positive Outlook to Autonomous Construction Equipment Market    

Booming construction and mining industry in Asia Pacific is setting platform for autonomous equipment market to flourish. Countries in Asia Pacific are welcoming autonomous equipment for construction and mining which is a rare sight in terms of accepting new technology compared to North America and Europe.
