LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global hydraulic excavator market report. This market research report also lists 41 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to this research analysis, the rapid growth of the construction sector in China has led to the growth of new vendors in the excavator market. Riding on the construction boom and favorable policies from China, these vendors have become global giants. Some of the major vendors in the industry are Caterpillar, Hitachi Construction Machinery, Komatsu, Volvo Construction Equipment, XCMG, SANY, Doosan, Terex, KOBELCO, Metso, and CNH.

“Competition among vendors is fierce owing to the slowdown in the market and increased competition from Chinese players that are expanding into other markets due to the economic downturn in their home market. Many Chinese players are investing in technologies and have drastically improved their machine performance and reliability on par with their developed counterparts,” says Likhitha Bandla, a lead construction analyst from Technavio.

Many MNCs are shifting their focus toward innovations to withstand the competition. For instance, companies like Komatsu are leveraging technologies to improve their product offerings and value. Komatsu recently launched an IT-based service that can help to improve operational efficiency through a 3D model of a construction site linked to the excavator for better accuracy. The competition in the market is projected to intensify as many companies are investing in emerging economies in anticipation of future growth prospects
