Side Lift Crane Market – Dynamics

Increasing logistics industry demand will attribute the growth for this industry       

The side lift crane is witnessing rapid evolution due to the increased adoption of these cranes in the logistics industry. Several ancillary equipment including cranes are gaining demand to perform efficient operations across regions due to the increased infrastructure activities. Smaller industry applications such as shipping, material handling, and transportation are undergoing positive growth which creates the need for side lift cranes to perform unloading and loading applications.

Limited awareness and lack of skilled operators will restrain the industry demand

Lack of skilled operators, higher structural costs, and limited awareness about the benefits of these cranes are the major factors expected to hinder the growth of the global side lift cranes market over the forecast timeline. Crane manufacturers are providing operator training courses related to material handling and weight lifting parameters for heavy containers to overcome these problems. Moreover, mobile movements of these cranes provide a better alternative to stationery cranes, thereby creating opportunity for the side lift crane market from 2019 to 2027.

Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness lucrative opportunities over the forecast timeline

Higher investments in manufacturing and thus the logistics sector is driving industry growth in the region. The government in China is planning to increase infrastructure investment for sustainable development across end-use industries. The development of the Chinese material handling sector led by increasing manufacturing and e-commerce industry has created numerous requirements for such cranes for efficient unloading and loading operations and for other warehouse management techniques.
