Backhoe is type of excavating equipment attached at the back of the tractor. It consists of a bucket attached at the end of two articulated arms that are operated hydraulically. Backhoe is utilized for digging, breaking of large structures, or earth moving applications. Pat of the arms, which holds the bucket, is known as dipper and the other part of the arm is known as boom.
Demand for backhoes is likely to rise at a significant pace during the forecast period due to consistent increase in the number of construction sites, which require numerous earth moving and digging machinery on site. Increase in the number of mining industries is boosting the demand for backhoes. Rise in population in certain regions across the globe such as countries in Asia Pacific has led to increasing congestion in existing cities. Rising congestion has prompted people to move to different places, which in turn boosts the construction industry. Expansion of construction and mining industries is fuelling the market of backhoes.
The backhoes market can be segmented based on types of wheels, application, geometry, and geography.
Based on types of wheels, the backhoes market can be segmented into crawler backhoe and wheeled backhoe. The wheeled backhoe segment is likely to hold a major share of the backhoes market owing to its several advantages over the crawler backhoe such as low cost, high speed, and low maintenance cost. Wheeled backhoes are generally utilized for lighter jobs and can be maneuvered on rough as well as smooth surfaces; however, the other segment is only utilized for heavy jobs and can be maneuvered on rough surfaces only.
Based on application, the construction industry segment is likely to hold a major share of the backhoes market. Backhoes have major applications in the construction industry as digging and earth moving equipment. They are employed in the construction industry for moving different materials such as granules, stones, and soil.
Based on capacity of the backhoes, the medium segment is likely to lead the backhoe market in terms of volume, as it can be employed for maximum number industries. Moreover, medium capacity backhoes are utilized in construction industries. Therefore, the medium capacity backhoe segment holds a higher share, as compared to the other segments.
Based on geometry of the boom, the straight boom backhoe segment is anticipated to hold a major share of the backhoe market. Straight boom has many advantages over the later invented booms. The other booms were invented to fasten up the controlling and working of the backhoe; however, due to several drawbacks, consumers prefer straight boom over the other booms.
Based on geography, Asia Pacific is likely to dominate the global backhoes market, followed by North America. The backhoe market in Asia Pacific is expanding at a rapid pace owing to rapid expansion of industries and urbanization in China, India, and other countries in the region.
Key players operating in the global backhoes market include Caterpillar Inc., Hitachi Ltd., Deere & Company, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Limited, Komatsu Ltd., and New Holland Construction.
