The global excavators market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during the period 2022-2027. Increasing number of private and public infrastructure projects, growing economic development activity, and government focus on major projects are the factors expected to drive demand, especially in developing nations including India. The need for high productivity and fuel-efficient machines is expected to stimulate market growth. North America, Europe and Asia are expected to be key markets.
Excavators are heavy construction equipment often employed for earthmoving projects. Sectors using excavators include mining, forestry, construction, pipeline industries, etc. These comprise a boom, bucket, arm, and cab on a spinning structure on an undercarriage with wheels or tracks. Excavators are used for digging, lifting and carrying tasks in different applications. By attaching particular tools such as hydraulic breakers, cutters, shears, grapples, couplers, etc. at the end of the various boom and arm formations, excavators become capable of performing a broader range of tasks. Excavators differ in size, according to the job required to be performed, and considerations including productivity, fuel efficiency, and multi-functional purposes. Each size is meant for a specific purpose, some being highly specialized.
Types of excavators include:
Crawler excavators – Also called general-purpose excavators, these comprise a bucket, boom, and arm to the anterior of the machine. Crawlers are available in different sizes, and may be used to dig, demolish structures and surfaces, perform trenching, and lift heavy objects.
Wheeled excavators – General-purpose excavators, the key difference being that these run on wheels instead of tracks. A major advantage of wheeled excavators is that these may be driven from one job site to another by road; crawler excavators that run on tracks usually need to be carried on a trailer for long-distance travel. Thus, wheeled excavators are more convenient and save time and cost.
Short swing radius excavators – A variation of the general-purpose excavator, it offers the same performance with a shorter swing radius superstructure, offering several benefits in urban and confined areas. These are available in both crawler and wheeled types.
Long-reach excavators – These general-purpose excavators have an extended boom and arm offering longer working range for tasks far away from the machine that may be otherwise difficult to reach, for example deep trenching, underwater digging.
Backhoe loaders – Generally used for landscaping and mining. A large bucket or blade (used to level or push surfaces with miles of materials such as soil) is connected to the front of the machine with a boom, arm, and bucket at the back. The boom and arm attached at the back serve the same purpose as a general-purpose excavator, but rotate nearly 205 degrees instead of 360.
The various types of excavator tools include Bucket, Thumb, Augers, Hydraulic Breaker, Shears, Hydraulic Quick Coupler, Ripper, and Tilt-rotator, among others. Excavators come in different sizes, including Compact Excavators- Mini/ Midi Size, and General-purpose Excavators – Large.
Several manufacturers offer excavators. Many companies manufacture different sizes and models of excavators to cater to projects of all sizes and natures. Poplar brands of excavator manufacturers include:
Caterpillar – also popular as CAT, it is one of the most popular brands of heavy equipment and machinery in the world, and a major heavy equipment manufacturer. Caterpillar manufactures many kinds of excavators.
Volvo – Volvo is known to push the boundaries of construction equipment manufacturing. In 2019, Volvo CE announced the goal of launching a range of electric compact excavators and wheel loaders by mid-2020. Such solutions are expected to contribute to the growth of the global excavators market. The company offers crawler excavators, wheeled excavators, mini excavators and short swing excavators. The company is most well-known for its wheeled excavators.
Komatsu – Modern excavators from Komatsu feature new engines and hydraulic technology which driving fuel efficiency. The company strives to build their excavators with the best quality material and superior craftsmanship. Komatsu offers a variety of excavators for all types of projects. Mid-range models such as the Komatsu PC170LC-11 offer a 121 hp with 2,100 rpm with an operating weight of up to 43,115 lbs. Komatsu also manufactures the PC240LC-10 Super Long Front, providing a productive and stable equipment base for deep ditch digging or sloping applications.
John Deere & Co – The company manufactures over 20 different kinds of excavators in different sizes, weight, and horsepower. The company’s largest excavator – the 870G LC Excavator enables 31ft in digging depth and a 512 hp. The 75G mid-sized excavator enables a 15ft digging depth, 56.9hp and weighs just under 18,000 lbs.
Excavator manufacturers offering products with advanced features and a range of attachments are expected to drive the global excavators market. OEMs are also increasingly making more advancements in their telematics to gain popularity with equipment owners looking to optimize their machine’s uptime and safety. Further, the market is likely to see a boost due to increased development activity.
In India, Hitachi witnessed increased deployment of ZAXIS X370GI excavators for irrigation and mining of iron ore. ZAXIS 470 continued to be popular in coal excavation, for which the company supplied larger ZAXIS 650 to EX 1900s.
JCB mini excavators are being employed for urban development projects that require compact machines to function in restricted spaces and municipal jobs. The range includes the 3-ton to 6-ton category in models such as 30 plus, 50z, 51R and 55z.
L&T is promoting its Komatsu PC210-10M0 for rough applications like stone, granite, and marble quarrying, and mass earthwork. The machine has robust structures, a more powerful engine and a bigger hydraulic pump.
