Electric Excavator Market

Electric Excavator Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019 - 2027

Electric Excavator Market Introduction

Electric excavator is an electrically powered heavy construction equipment that is used to dig holes and trenches, and for material handling, mining, construction, forestry mulching, general grading, river dredging, drilling shafts, driving piles, and other such applications. It comprises a dipper, bucket, boom, and a cab on a rotating platform. The electric excavator is powered by a massive kilowatt-hour battery pack, instead of a conventional internal combustion engine, and is considered as low or zero-emission equipment vehicle, as no carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, or other particulate matter is released into the atmosphere. The global electric excavator market has been expanding significantly for the last couple of years. It is likely to expand at a noteworthy pace in the near future.

Electric excavator Market - Competitive Landscape

  • Recently, Caterpillar Inc. formed a joint venture with Pon Equipment in an effort to electrify construction machinery and introduced an all-electric 26-ton excavator, which contains a giant 300 kilowatt-hour battery pack. The company believes that the electric excavator outcome would offer a better experience toward reduction of noise and air pollution at construction or operating sites.
  • Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE), the Sweden-based company, recently showcased its new range of electric compact machine, ECR25 excavator, a complete electric excavator fitted with lithium-ion batteries, onboard chargers, and an electric motor to power the hydraulics of the machine.

Electric Excavator Market Dynamics

Evolution in industry and booming infrastructure coupled with surging pollution are driving demand for electric excavator

Rapid transformation and evolution of several industries in conjunction with booming infrastructure across the globe, especially in developing countries, have fueled the demand for electric excavator. Moreover, surge in urban and metropolitan building sites, which requires high performance, more compact, and environment-friendly solutions, is anticipated to drive the electric excavator market in the near future

Furthermore, transportation pollution is a key factor driving the adoption of electric excavators, as traditional excavators emit harmful gases that are injurious to both humans and the environment. These factors are likely to boost the demand for electric excavator in next couple of years.

Manufacturers designing electric excavator to work for numerous applications

Electric excavators are designed and manufactured by equipment and machinery manufacturers to be employed in a variety of applications, ranging from river dredging and digging holes to demolition of unwanted infrastructure to construction. Manufacturers are constantly developing battery packs and electric motors to enhance the power of the electric excavator in order to cater to multiple applications.

Higher cost of battery to hamper the electric excavator market

The battery, which is a vital component of any electric mobility, accounts for around 40% of the total cost of electric mobility. The high cost of the battery has been recognized as a major challenge to the commercialization of electric excavators in mainstream consumer applications. Additionally, higher maintenance cost of electric excavators is also anticipated to hamper the electric excavator market in the near future.

Another challenge to the commercialization of electric excavators is the option of rapidly recharge the batteries, as it necessitate more powerful grid access.
