Increase in government expenditure on developing infrastructure, growing demand for smart city projects which requires a large amount of construction equipment and newly formed emission regulations to initiate progress in OHV engine & exhaust technologies are driving the global construction equipment market. A report from industry insider, Fior Markets added: "Construction equipment is defined as a wide variety of heavy machines which implement specific construction functions under power. Due to modernization and technological improvements, the need for construction equipment has increased substantially for highly disciplined industries, including the military and railway operations. The construction machines may be classified according to their functions such as hoisting, excavating, hauling, grading, paving, drilling, or pile driving. Heavy construction equipment is an important component of all construction projects as they lower the cost of labor and reduce the amount of time taken to complete projects. The machines are designed in a way to increase speed, efficiency, and accuracy so as to improve operator comfort and safety. The world construction equipment market consists different industries including manufacturing, oil & gas, forestry, military and public works. For instance, Caterpillar (U.S.) launched its Cat utility vehicles - the gasoline-powered Cat CUV82 and diesel-powered CUV102D to build a UTV that delivers the combination of durability, comfort and maintenance simplicity.

The increased expenditure by the government on developing infrastructure is a major factor driving the market growth. However, the high cost of equipment may obstruct the growth of the market.
