View Report Details
Wheel loaders are one of the major segments of construction equipment industry. These are used extensively in numerous fields
ranging from building structures to mining and farming. It can perform four general tasks: scooping, digging, dumping and carrying.
Loaders are used mainly for loading materials into trucks, laying pipe, clearing rubble, and digging. There are various makes and
models of wheel loaders, which can be categorized into heavy wheel loader and the light wheel loader.
The growth of the global wheel loader market has witnessed a significant incline in 2013 after plunging in previous year which was
majorly due to the weakening demand in China. However, a considerable growth is anticipated in the coming years.
The key factors driving growth of the global wheel loaders industry include rising global construction expenditure, increasing urban
population, accelerating global income and China’s booming construction industry. Some of the noteworthy trends and developments
of this industry are the expanding rental market for wheel loaders and the development of emerging markets like India, Indonesia.
However, the growth of global wheel loader industry is hindered by the strict regulatory compliance imposed on manufacturers and
adverse economic condition.
The present report offers a comprehensive analysis of the worldwide wheel loader. The competition in the global market is intense with
few large players viz. Caterpillar, Komatsu, Liebherr, Volvo and Liugong. The competitive landscape in China, Brazil, North America
and Europe along with the company profiles of the leading players in the market is discussed in detail.
