A concrete breaker is a powerful striking tool (hammer) joined to an excavator to demolish rocks or concrete structures. It is the machine designed to break or knock down a rigid structure. An auxiliary hydraulic system from the excavator is used for the operation of the concrete breaker. Additionally, concrete breakers are manufactured for demolition jobs, where the job is too heavy for the areas or jackhammer where blasting is not safe due to environmental issues. Concrete breaker, among construction/demolition workers is commonly known as pecker, hammer, hoe rammer, or hoe ram. Hydraulic drives are used as the primary source of motion in some equipment. Perfect hydraulic flow through engine speed for the concrete breaker is provided by the hydraulic system attached to the machine. Thus, the system ensures hydraulic power needed during the breaking and demolition process. Key players operating in the concrete breaker market are focusing on adding innovative equipment to their product portfolio. The upgraded concrete breaker is designed to cater to the practical working surroundings and needs of industry sites. Development of technology has enabled tunneling and drilling to be carried out at critical areas. Various types of concrete breakers are available in the market; however, choosing the right type of concrete breaker is imperative. Parameters for selecting a concrete breaker include material, complexity of the project, quality, cost, safety, and time.
The global concrete breaker market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. The demand for concrete breakers is anticipated to grow due an increase in infrastructural development, such as residential & non-residential buildings, bridges & tunnels, mining, and roads. Concrete breakers have wide applications such as for concrete breaking & recycling, slag breaking, scaling & tunnel excavation, rock breaking, underwater applications, sidewalk & curb construction, commercial/selective demolition, trenching, reducing oversize material, site excavation, and others. Additionally, significant increase in the number of mining projects and development of infrastructure are boosting economic growth by facilitating cross-border trade and industrial growth. This in turn is creating demand for concrete breakers. Moreover, rise in government?private partnerships for the construction of public infrastructure such as metros or city rail systems in countries such as Japan, India, and China, and increase in government initiatives regarding infrastructure development are propelling the concrete breaker market. High initial capital investment and usage of high-class and expensive materials in the manufacture of equipment may restrain the market. Growth in industrial projects and increase in number of projects that involve concrete breakers such as construction, mining, chemical industry, and repowering of old projects are likely to provide lucrative opportunities to the concrete breaker market during the forecast period. The usage of the recent technology of dismantling tunnels and advancements in the tunneling process are projected to create opportunities in the near future.
