This move is also expected to ensure sizable growth for the region’s construction equipment market over the coming years.

Owing to Australia’s rapidly rising population, the government apparently, is also planning a plethora of new infrastructure projects such as housing construction, railways, airports, etc. Attributed to the same, the nation is projected to witness high demand for machinery, driving the regional construction equipment industry. Indeed, APAC construction equipment market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 6% over 2019-2025.


The regional trends mentioned above clearly indicate the numerous growth prospects for the APAC construction equipment market in the forthcoming years. In fact, according to Global Market Insights, Inc., the APAC construction equipment industry size is touted to surpass the $80 billion renumeration mark by 2025.
