Hydraulic breakers are used for the demolition of big rocks, concrete material, or a specific structure into small pieces. A powerful striking hammer is fitted to an excavator. The excavator has an attached powerful auxiliary system. This system is attached to a foot operated valve. Hydraulic breakers are used in scenarios where jackhammering is not feasible and blasting is not possible due to safety and environmental issues. Hydraulic breakers are also known as peckers, hammers, hoe rammers, or hoe rams. These terms are common particularly among construction and demolition workers. Moreover, the hydraulic breaker is manufacturer in such way that it is easy to assemble on an excavator. Hydraulic breakers are capable of applying high pressure from its canister due to pressurized hydraulic oil. Hydraulic breakers are most useful for construction quarrying and demolition applications. There are two types of hydraulic breaker: machine mounted hydraulic breaker and handheld hydraulic breaker. Both types have common components such as the cylinder and piston. Cylinder is the most important component of a hydraulic breaker. Piston convert kinetic energy that helps to improve hammering pressure. In addition, many manufacturers offer hydraulic breakers with shock absorbers. It offers safety for construction equipment as it absorbs most of the mechanical forces. It also protects the components of rock breakers. Few hydraulic breakers come with steel bushing which helps in vibration isolation. End-users of hydraulic breakers demand safety and high efficiency and reliability.
A major driver boosting the global hydraulic breaker market is expansion of infrastructure and construction industry. Moreover, rise in demand for maximum productivity in minimum time and at less cost is projected to drive the hydraulic breaker market. High productivity, reliability, low maintenance, automatic lubrication, easy to maintain, and low noise emission levels of hydraulic breakers are anticipated to augment the hydraulic breaker market in during the forecast period. Moreover, increase in demand for machines with improved quality is expected to propel the market. However, lack of skilled labor and downstream support, and high cost of hydraulic breaker machines are projected to restrain the global hydraulic breaker market in the near future. Lack of awareness regarding operating hydraulic breakers with high efficiency is also expected to hinder the market. Nevertheless, growing mining industry and municipal engineering is expected to create significant opportunity for the hydraulic breaker market in the coming years.
The global hydraulic breaker market can be classified based on product, hydraulic hammer type, application, and region. Based on product, the market can be segmented into machine mounted hydraulic breaker and handheld hydraulic breaker. In terms of hydraulic hammer type, the market can be categorized into heavy duty hammer, medium duty hammer, and light duty hammer. Based on application, the market can be classified into construction industry, mining industry, municipal engineering, infrastructure, quarrying, and others such as mineral processing. In terms of region, the global hydraulic breaker market can be categorized into North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, U.K., Italy, France, Russia, Poland, and Spain), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia), Middle East & Africa, and South America.
Major players operating in the global hydraulic breaker market include Indeco, Konekesko, Atlas Copco, Nuosen Machinery, Sandvik, Everdigm, Rammer, Soosan Heavy Industries, Caterpillar, John Deere, Montabert, JCB, NPK, Stanley Hydraulics, Volvo, Takeuchi, Breaker Technology Inc., Miller UK, Furukawa, and Hammer srl. With an increase in competitiveness in the market due to fewer manufacturers of hydraulic breakers, top companies are expanding their R&D facilities to develop and design durable, efficient, high strength, and quality machines. Moreover, key players are looking to develop improved and new technologies for hydraulic breaker applications.
