Wheel Loaders Market Overview and Introduction

Global wheel loaders market valued US$ 15.24 billion in 2018. It is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.69% from 2019 to 2030. 

Wheel loaders are multipurpose moveable shovels, designed to carry heavy loads and relocate materials from stockpiles to trucks, or transfer materials around job sites. Wheel loaders are used in industries such as quarry and mining, construction, agriculture & forestry, and many others. Additionally, public sector entities, equipment rental companies, sand and gravel sites and companies dealing with industrial waste also use wheel loaders for site preparation work, digging and moving and placing materials.

Continuously rising construction activities such as development of transport infrastructure and mega construction projects have been driving the overall growth of the market. Additionally, new product launches by the key players is another factor contributing towards the market growth. For instance, in June 2019, Caterpillar has launched new 920K compact wheel loader with high tipping loads, enhanced stability and intelligent power-management system.

However, high cost associated with wheel loaders and huge initial investment for manufacturing wheel loaders are the factors that have been hampering the growth of the market. Furthermore, technological development such as electrification of wheel loaders can create a big opportunity in the coming years as many regional governments have been taking various initiatives for promoting clean energy due to high environmental concerns.
